Storm // Elements Series




As I was working on the photos of this bracelet, I thought 'hey, it's pretty timely with the incessant rain & thunderstorms we've been having the past weeks' :)
Of course, I made mine with an added kick of magical aura by including snowflake, star & angel wings charms.
For beads, striking midnight blue beads alternating with cloudy grey chinese crystals (special effect added with a side of it having the *AB coat) which looks like flashes of lightning in a stormy sky! ;)

*AB effect: known as Aurora Borealis (AB), making the coated part reflective shiny
** Took an extra photo holding this piece up, click HERE to view it.

The Elements Series



Over the long weekend, I took time out to plan this new series, putting ideas in a notebook rather than having them scattered all over the mind for the entire of October. I spent a few hours arranging beads and making notes, at the end of the session I have scribbled pages long of notes & took tons of draft photos of the jewellery to be made, that was good for the soul :)

As you can see in the photo above, rain clouds, teardrops, rainbows make up this photo charm series.
I absolutely adore clouds, something about the fluffy white bulbous type just makes my heart soar with gratefulness for having this beauty of nature to be enjoyed daily :) and having rain drops together is a huge plus, total love 

The first bracelet will be up tonight, while the rest will be published on the blog as soon as I finish making it, piece by piece.

Thanks :)

Gold Rush






I absolutely love the little flower beads, especially since they come in funkylicious metallic coats
(dark grey ones can be seen in Moonlit)
The gold coating reminded me of gold nuggets, and rather than being delicate about a gold themed piece, I opted for the rugged route ;)
A dangling strand lined with little brass balls + double chains to finish it off.

Moonlit Necklace // the Enchanted series


Completely oblivious that I have a bigger Moonlit photo charm for a matching necklace,
until I dug through my photo reserve and found a bunch of them I prepared months ago!
(things do get lost around here once in a while :( better organization needed!!)

• Matching Bracelet: CLICK HERE.





For this necklace, pendant area is kept simple since the photo charm is the focal point.
Instead, I focused on the chain design, choosing the same materials used in the bracelet while introducing 2 little brass 'lantern' beads- sandwiching the Swarovski butterfly :)


Material
Silver Night Swarovski Butterfly
Midnight Blue Chinese Crystal Doughnut
Denim Blue Chinese Crystal Cube
Midnight Blue Chinese Crystal Teardrop
Metallic Grey Acrylic Flower Bead
Lantern Brass Bead
Small Butterfly Link
Enchanted Photo Charm

Necklace Measurement
Chain Length: approx. 60.0 cm excluding 4.8 cm extender chain
Drop: 2.6 cm

I was waiting for the the right feel to come along before using this beautifully vivid turquoise image, it wasn't until I found the turquoise chinese crystals that everything came together just as how I had pictured it in mind!

Little butterfly links and figure 8 chain to complete the rest :)

Butterfly Bracelets Customization

It's no secret I love butterfly filigrees ;)
Just like Iris, here are 2 custom bracelets with a huge butterfly in the center, definitely eye-catching! 






Suhaida likes the Lilacca arrangement- daily links nudged between little bicone beads and the birdhouse charm.
She went for midnight and metallic blue shades, colours that exude a cool mysterious vibe!
Lastly, a slate, dusky chrysanthemum to 'neutralize' it a bit :) 

Material
 Midnight Blue Faceted Chinese Crystal
Metallic Blue Chinese Crystal Bicone
Butterfly Filigree
Daisy Links
Birdhouse Charm







A butterfly lover, see the 2 little accompanying butterfly charms!
This is made for Nasuha's friend, in girly pinks & purples instead of the rich greens of Lush.
Nasuha personalised this further by including a C alphabet, while star shaped charm on the right bears the message "Just For You" :)

Material
Flower Cabochon
Metallic Lilac Glass Pearl Bead
Medium Purple Faux Pearl Bead
Light Purple Faux Pearl Bead
Light Pink Faux Pearl Bead
Pink Dyed Jade Stone Bead
Faint Pink Chinese Crystal Doughnut
