Dainty

While I have described quite a few pieces as dainty in the past, I have always refrained from using it as a name, simply because I believe there will come a piece one day that would wear this name perfectly...

and finally it is here :)



available in 2 sweet shades: pink & purple





Flower cabochon with a mix of Swarovski & Chinese crystals decorating the sides, held on by beautifully twisted chains.
An additional Swarovski piece (heart / teardrop) dangles from the flower, because a little spark in life is always nice ;)

  Flower Cabochon
Rose Alabaster Swarovski Bicone
Opal White Chinese Crystal Helix
Metallic Lilac Glass Pearl Bead
Vitrail Light Swarovski Heart
Amethyst Swarovski Teardrop

Eiffel Tower Charm

Medieval


I sense a mild touch of Gothic Victorian here, with the matching of a key and dusty blue + purple ;)
Ignited further by the various accompanying details dangling on the carved chain-
dazzling heart, black bead with reflective band, dark sapphire & amethyst crystals.
Last but not least, the vague engraving of 'Made With Love' simply adds to the antiquity of this piece!

While green isn't a colour I work with frequently, these beautiful dyed jade stones in lime & mint made it simply irresistible not to use them! ;)
I chose lime green teardrops to go with them, which brought about the umbrella charm (hehe).
and for something so refreshing, a bird charm soaring up high seemed perfect!

Aviary // matching necklace




I was pleasantly surprised when I realized the colours of this piece went very well with the bracelet.
I didn't plan it that way, mere coincidence, but I suspect it has something to do with these new metallic beads, so gorgeously sparkly that I HAD to use them again ;)
So, matching necklace it is, especially when it is bird themed too!

revamped!

presenting the new Crafted By Mei! :))))
I wanted a cleaner, neater, more minimalistic look with wide page widths, Google was certainly my best friend as I tackled on this HTML jargon.
Finally here it is, a layout revolving around geeky stationery theme: vintage graph papers, cork boards & Polaroid frames.
Oh, must not forget the scallop edges too!
(psst.... Have you seen them on clothing? So cute!)


Anyway, along with this new layout comes a couple of changes to my photos as well:
  • Larger
  • Borderless
  • New watermark
(for pieces I have posted before this change, I will enlarge as many as I possibly can, the older ones will remain at the old size)



Hope you like it & do drop by my new Facebook page too!
Thank you so much :)

layout change....


will be working on a layout change today, things may look out of place and some pages may not load.
Things should be back in place by tonight, with a whole new look, yay!

check back soon! ;)
