I love pearls and when I spotted this in a magazine that a friend and fellow beader lent me, I couldn't resist doing it up. Woven using Swarovski pearls in various sizes and lots of effort! Very bridal-looking too.Necklace is choker length and is meant to sit around the base of the neck. I have attached a extension chain for the perfect fit.

An interesting mix of materials here: Wooden black squares, multiple faceted "crystal" blings of different shapes and tones, black faceted elongated beads, matt gold beads, faceted "crystal" balls and two round black beads with gold carvings all linked together with a weaved thick silver chain.
A piece that is both elegant and unique...

Do pardon the shadow... another late night photograph taken of this bag charm. I love strawberries and cherries charms... as such, the second in the bag charm series to have a big strawberry dangling from it. Lots of green and red glitter dust, but all nicely encased in a plastic cover so no worries abt any of it sticking to your bag. Complemented by faux pearls, red bead and green tear-drops...
Another customised bag charm for my friend as a X'mas pressie.. A purple cube dangles from the bottom with some white flower balls, multi-hued red and pink beads, pink and purple multi-faceted beads and heart charms.
The third bookmark. A silver rod with designs of flowers imprinted on it. I've decided to keep things simple and just dangle a lovely yet striking crystallised butterfly from it. With the butterfly swaying around, the image of it flying amongst a garden of flowers is presented.
A bronze rod with stars, suns and rainbows.. A lovely ballerina trying to reach for the star that hangs on the rod... with some glass flowers sashaying in between. A picture depicting the arts and reaching for your dreams.
This is also the present we chose for bf's mother... Hope she likes it :)
I've sufficient materials just to re-create one more...
This is a first time attempt at creating a hair-tie... except for the leaves & the tiny Swarovski pearl, all parts are from Japan.
Whitish translucent petals shimmering with specks of gold with pink and creamy yellow centres, this hair-tie is totally reflective of a delicate beauty. Green leaves made of glass with painted gold veins complement the flower. It was a custom order for a friend who wished to order Christmas gifts for her colleagues.. I've only sufficient materials for one more such hair-tie.

There's only about a month to X'mas!!
Do consider getting a unique gift for your loved ones....
All our products will come in organza bags. For the more expensive range of accessories (typically the necklaces), they will come in boxes. We also have some lovely boxes such as those below in varying sides. When ordering the accessories, do let us know your preference and we can deliver the presents in these boxes too... the boxes come in varying sizes and cost about $2 - $3 each. If you do trust us, you can leave it to us to select the most appropriate packaging (i.e. match the product size/type to the type of boxes to be used).

This is a very unique piece (pardon the bad photography). It has 2 toggles with lovely flower design. Roses and leaves dangle from a thicker chain. If you un-do both toggles, you have a simple straight chain as below:
As with the angels, re-launching this series of wine-glass charms for the festive season!
Been to quite a no. of parties.. and the sad thing is, with so many guests, the glasses do get mixed up after awhile. What better gift for him (& of coz for her too) if he likes to entertain or appreciate wines?
Rodium hoops to ensure that they are more lasting and do not rust that easily, multi-faceted colourful acrylic beads and of coz, a different charm on each to ensure individuality.
The acrylic beads look really pretty when light falls on them (or through them)!
The charms from the top left down:
1) Cat, 2) Lady's hat, 3) Holly, 4) Strawberry, 5) Bicycle, 6) Heart, 7) Sandal, 8) Butterfly, 9) Pacifier. (Click on the pic to see details of charms.)
I do have some more charms and acrylic beads of different colours.. However, I'm unable to post all up.. So this is just a sample.. for each set ordered, I'll ensure that the charms are all different with various matching colour combinations. Some charms will be unisex, masculine or feminine to cater to all the guests! :))

The beautiful ring is actually a bronze filigee ring, with the flower as the centre-piece and a lovely bronze-encrusted crystal dangles from the ring, adding to its charm and grace. This is an adjustable ring.
Made from Swarvoski components, each piece is different and put together with much love and attention to the colour combination. They are great for keepsakes or as gifts to friends and colleagues for the upcoming festive season. :)
- 6 pcs & above: $8 each

Went on a little trip to Japan this year and bought some jewellery parts and findings there. I barely scratched the surface of the many many beading shops there. Would love to go back there one day to buy more stuff.This little guy was one of my finds there. Did it up as simple mis-matched dangly pair of earrings. No prizes for guessing what I would be wearing to this year's Christmas parties/events :)

Must confess upfront that this is not the most original of ideas. But I couldn't resist making this when I came across a pretty string of freshwater pearls that's the perfect size for weaving into this ball of pearls. Looks best when worn with a thin gold chain.

Anyway, after much deliberation, I decided to make a teddy bear for him :) Hand-sewing a teddy bear is indeed not too easy.. and the materials do cost a bit too. Since this is my first attempt, I decided to use not too expensive fur compared to the usual mohair... I've also decided to make it small.. not one for cuddling but one to place on the desk...
And the end-product is on the right. Though not exactly as good as those in the shops, but I've done some research and realised that mine doesn't look that bad as all hand-sewn bears go :p
The best part is... it MOVES!! All joints including the head can be turned! How cool is that huh??? :p
I've also decorated it with a "burberry" ribbon... not the real thing of coz... but some checkered ribbon ... and I love checkered design :)
The end product, happily sitting in a nice box, before it was wrapped up and tied up with a lovely white satin ribbon :)

This is truly a unique piece.
When I was in Japan, I only bought 2 of these beautiful glass pendants.. 1 with gold trimmings and white painted flowers, the other with "black" trimmings and white flowers against a maroon background.
I've decided to keep the design simple.. so as to show the loveliness of the floral pendant. Featuring the gold pendant here while I decide what to do with the other one :pA lovely pendant on a 14K gold-plated necklace, accentuated by freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals.... The length of the entire necklace is 16 inches.. a short necklace sitting nicely on the collar bone...
Simple yet elegant piece..
Anyway, one of the rare items featuring those beautiful items I bought in Japan close to 2 years ago... :p yah.. a long time ago..
A bracelet, toggle style (and a beautiful floral toggle), with 2 "double-sided" flowers and a carriage dangling at the end. The 2 flowers have 2 views: cream enamel on 1 side and gold on the other with crystal in the middle.. so you can decide which side you wish to show.
A really dainty and sweet piece.. with a fairy tale behind it's concept... :)
All parts are 14K gold plated...

Life has simply got in the way of creating and crafting. Not much time for creative work these days but I have been doing some customised orders for family and friends. So do drop us an email if you wish to have a special piece done for yourself or as a gift to a special someone.
Have been doing some de-cluttering lately and have cleared some of the older stocks which are now listed as sold. If you still want to order some of our old favourites, do drop us a line. We will try our best to remake for you, subject to availability of materials. :)

My mother wanted something to wear to a dinner. Hence, i created this super glam series....
Introducing the first of this series which I've been experiencing with recently:
Exuberance. Made from 925 sterling silver and cubic zirconia and a beautiful high-quality multi-faceted teardrop Swarovski crystal, she is simply too radiant. I've attached various pictures here to show her in different light.
The "fiery" amethyst shimmery tone... that catches light at every angle. At one moment, she appears pinkish purplish.. at another, she seems darker and emits a bluish tone.
Simply string her up with a silver or white gold chain and you're all ready to dazzle! (chain not included but can be sourced for at an additional cost)

For the guys who never grow up... :)))
Another baby... and this one was done at the request of S. Ever seen a purple crab??? :p This cute baby may not have the "Precious Moment" look.. but more of an impish look...
Much apologies.. think I need to raise the price of these babies.. reason being that the supplier has increased the prices. The wait may also be slightly longer since the shipments are not coming in as fast. Pls note that these clayheads are all handmade... and hence, every piece is unique and well-worth the price. These babies are not that easy to create and do take quite a bit of effort.. especially when trying to drive a pin through the super resilent core of the fluffy bodies. My record: an hr trying to drive a needle through 1..
However, I'll continue to honour the old price for those who have already made their orders...
