So excited was I when I found this precious gunmetal-plated pendant!
An odd-shaped lattice housing an acrylic crystal within, this sure is a fancy little thing ;)
For the first strand of the bracelet, beads in midnight hues to complement the gunmetal.
Also, the smaller bead sizes were deliberately chosen to allow all focus upon the lattice in the second dangly strand, after all, that is the star of our bracelet here :)

Thyst






For those who likes chunkier bracelets, here's one made for you :)
Bigger beads, bigger flower & bigger charms!
The contrasting strengths of gentle rose verses tough metallic silver seemed like an oddity initially, but as I played around and brought in other beads with similar reflective surfaces,
it dawned upon me that this bracelet has a deeper meaning, it's like saying a first impression may be weak and fragile, but look closer and you'll see it's wrapped around with strength and love, supplemented by the two heart 'shields'.

Flower Cabochon
Amethyst Swarovski Bicone
Clear AB Swarovski Bicone
Smoky Blue Gemstone Doughnut Chinese Crystal
Metallic Silver Chinese Crystal Teardrop
Grey AB Chinese Crystal Helix
Purple Bauble Round Glass Bead (2 shades)

7 bracelets in 7 rainbow colours, packed with beads and personalized photo charm.
Back boned with a line up of pearls and mini sized beads squeezed between.
Sisters Always and Heart Rhombus charms are common to all, while 1 unique charm to celebrate each bridemaids' passion.

For those who do not wear bracelets, Carmen ordered keychains instead,
using the same Smiley photo charms with name.

I thought might as well share it here too :)

Shop Talk 2017


Hi there & happy 2017!
Just thought I should chat about a few things, since this blog has been on-and-off active and inactive.

A couple of very sweet long time visitors have noticed and emailed to check if i'm okay & if i'm still running this blog, nothing to worry folks, I am well :) For those who are clueless what this is all about, it's just that I have been consistently updating the blog since 2009, and then beginning 2015, I sort of dropped off the radar with my sporadic updates followed by months of silence. It's all for a good reason though, I finally got myself back into university studies, although with the amount of reading and lab reports to do, I'm simply overwhelmed that the business side of things is now a part-time job. I no longer have the luxury of investing all my waking hours into this dearest hobby, but I delighted in the period where all I did daily was running between the computer and my work table, churning out piece after piece of bracelets and then sending them all to another table for packaging the next day. During peak seasons, the late nights and weekend overtime where my hands worked nonstop, these are the memories I treasure and it is all made possible because you guys believed in my work :) 


All in all, I'm at a very happy & contented stage in life, juggling between studying my favourite subjects and running a blogshop, both of which I'm passionate about! The earlier years haven't been easy but grace was and is always sufficient. Stepping into 2017, I'm guessing it will be the same trend, updating the blog whenever I have pockets of free time, but behind the scenes, I'm always taking orders, as long as you don't mind a 14 day wait ;)

Thank you for reading this and I wish you the very best, for joy and peace to fill your hearts daily in this new year.
mei.

Gift to Self



First thought of seeing a gift box charm usually means presents for others, but let's focus on self this time.
The idea behind this piece was that I wanted to create a 'treat-yourself' bracelet, as a 'pat yourself on the back' gift if the year went well or as an encouragement to pick ourselves up and soldier on had the year been bad. Whatever it was, only you know the full story.
As this adorns your wrist, let the shiny rhinestone, gift box, star & dream be visual reminders to keep you focused on your goal, reaching for the stars.
Lastly, sweet sugary pink to sweeten things up!
