Milky Way



If you notice it's predominantly Czech beads listed under 'materials', it's because I rummaged through my blue Czech glasses bead box and came up with this!
I had fun mixing blue shades with ebony black, especially the glossed rose cabochon, I got this recently :)
A simple bracelet suitable for everyday wear, & don't miss out on that adorable padlock charm!

Customizatin: Lily

Lily absolutely loves flowers and no wonder that's her nickname ;)
She customized these 2 bracelets, one for her friend while keeping the other for herself.



For her friend's piece, she wanted the concept to be like Droplets, she mentioned to go along the style of simple & unique.
She chose a soft colour of pink blending with light purple, with the LOVE bar charm as her friend likes hearts.
She added the key in to match with the keyhole in the 'Made With Love' charm :)

She picked Hanging Garden but wanted it to be in Green, her favourite colour.

The accompanying beads are all chose based on what Lily wanted, a theme revolving around flowers & nature ;)

Bouquet

I experimented with polyclay some time ago, tried my best but still couldn't come up with the shapes & beads I had in mind (yeah, I wanted to design my own beads). Without thinking I threw away all my clay and even the old oven, which I deeply regret now :(

Anyway, since I couldn't make them myself, I settled for the ready made ones and bought these clay flowers, they do look really good, love the deep purple colour!



I love this, honestly! =)
The inspiration for this piece came from the 2 bouquet of clay flowers , note the colour!
Features a beautiful butterfly filigree in the center, accompanied with Czech glass aqua blue beads & lucite bellflower matching the whole floral theme.

Pastel Love



Love how feminine this piece looks!
Gorgeous orchid, pink & creamy glass pearls with a hint of flower beads make up this sweet bracelet. I added in 4 heart charms too, they are deliberately hung lower from the chain so they wouldn't get lost in the beads :)
In the center is a lovely antique brass heart charm with 'LOVE' boldly etched on it!

Summer Joy

I guess I have been much influenced by the summer season in US, I love working with these happy, bright colours. It wasn't intentional, I made them over a span of 2 days, did not know I re-used the same colour combo till I put them both together, and even the same charms too!

Decided to group these 2 bracelets in a post, enjoy the burst of greens & yellows!

Woodlands



I made this with a 'woody' theme in mind, but me being a pink fan, I couldn't resist adding in dusty rose & fuchsia glass pearls in!
No harm done though, loving the hint of sweetness here :)
The daisies are made of shells while the dark brown beads are coated with a nice sugary texture.
