Alia Inspired Customizations // Chapter 1

Here are 2 pieces modelled after Alia's customization
a popular design with many remake requests,
so much so that I have remembered every detail of the bracelet & can recreate without a single glance at the pics ;)





While the original Alia piece is vibrant with bright colours, this does a 360 change and goes monochrome!
taking the safe, classic route of blacks & whites.
Accompanied by nature themed charms (flower, birds & butterfly).

Material
Silver Night Swarovski Heart
Smoky Quartz Swarovski Bicone
Midnight Blue Faceted Round Chinese Crystal
Opal White AB Chinese Crystal Cube
Sunflower Charm
Dove Charm
Lovebirds Charm
Clover Charm
Wings Butterfly Charm
Mini Heart Link
Oval Brass Floral Link






For Grace.
Instead of a heart, focal piece here is the snowflake photo charm,
surrounded by crystals of turquoise & sapphire.

Material
Blue Zircon Swarovski Bicone
Dark Sapphire Swarovski Bicone
Mini Sapphire Blue AB Faceted Round Chinese Crystal
Turquoise Blue AB Chinese Crystal Doughnut
Made With Love Charm
Dove Charm

Baby's Breath // Crystal Ball

Crystal ball is one thing that fascinates me since I was a kid, from the happy ending fairy tales to the gypsy psychic carnivals, who wouldn't want to know what their future holds? ;)

But this post is not about fortune-telling nor do I believe in powers like that,
so let's get back to what a girl does best and get girly with this baby's breath instalment!
A popular choice for bride bouquets is this flower called baby's breath.
Dried & dyed in many colours, they are commonly weaved in hairbands too.

But put these dainty buds in a glass sphere, don't they look just like falling snowflakes in a snowglobe?
breathtaking ;)

Baby's Breath is available in 7 colours plus 3 choices of bottom capping.

7 colours:
Blue, Red, 
Beige White, Yellow, Orange,
Purple, Green


For the bottom capping, there are 3 colours available:
White Cap, Black Cap, Brass Cap



* colour is more of beige white, not pure white
with 50cm chain.
(75cm chain available upon request)

Be the belle of the ball!

Glass Crystal Ball
Dyed Baby's Breath

Twinkle- a gleam of light, a sparkling flash, just like a shooting star.

Amethyst Blend.
