Customization: Arinah

Pieces customized by Arinah, for 2 friends & herself :)

First 2 pieces for the friend who came back during winter break late last year,
homecoming gift set comprising a bracelet & necklace.


Medieval, just like the original, but with 3 metallic turquoises added to the other end.
The bright colours serve to lighten the mood :)

Material
Flower Cabochon
Metallic Turquoise Glass Pearl Bead
Crystal Heliotrope Swarovski Heart
Dark Sapphire Swarovski Bicone
Amethyst Chinese Crystal Faceted Round Bead
AB Band Black Glass Bead
Rose Key Charm
Made With Love Charm






Then we have this necklace, based on Beloved :)
Dark Swarovski crystals to match the Medieval bracelet above.
This friend loves butterfly so double butterfly links on 1 side of the chain!

Material
Flower Cabochon
Dark Purple Swarovski Bicone
Navy Blue Swarovski Bicone
Light Amethyst Swarovski Bicone
Matte Purple Acrylic Heart Bead
Hearts Pendant
Butterfly Link Charm

(note: no remakes available for the necklace, ran out of heart pendant)




Next up: 
pink girly bracelet for another friend :)

The keywords I was given for this were 'fun & girlish', and the matte fuchsia heart is a must to include ;)
General idea from Posy, with lots more details added in.
Decorated with sugary textured pearls, metallic lilacs & Swarovski crystals, here's a sparkly minimalistic design for this girly girl!

Material
Flower Cabochon
Rose Pink Textured Pearl Bead
Metallic Lilac Glass Pearl Bead
Light Amethyst Swarovski Bicone
Fuchsia AB Swarovski Heart
Butterfly Charm
Floral Heart Charm
Oval Brass Floral Link



Lastly, 
a beaded long necklace for Arinah herself!

note the 2 sparklingly shiny Swarovski butterflies just on top of the rose!





Colour scheme is similar to the pink girly bracelet, but the flower here is many times bigger!
Bold large Buttercup rose at the end, just like Jaja's!
This necklace is filled with Swarovski crystals, in bicones & butterfly shapes, and the butterfly-links-meet-heart-bead (as seen in the purple necklace) is also incorporated in her own necklace ;)

and here's a part of her very sweet reply, too sweet actually!
anyhoo, i was so excited to receive the accessories, during break time, i straight away opened all three boxes! the boxes are just perfect, btw! the sweet pink colour and the white ribbon just jive well! and my colleagues went ouhhhhhs and aahhhhhhhhs. even the boys! hahaha. and the butterfly swarovski with AB coat definitely caught A LOT of attention! i would say Buttercup is the 'popular girl' in the school. all eyes were on her! :P job well done, mei! :D *thumbs up*

Thank you Arinah, you know how much fun I myself had making these ;) xoxo!
