Papillon




Duo-tone chrysanthemum perfectly mimicking the discolouration & faded effect of antique items, a gem for vintage lovers.
Overall nature themed, do notice the placement of the butterfly- how it is spreading its wings and ready to fly yet not knowing a cage is just waiting nearby, just like how life is, we never know when danger is lurking at the corner to entrap us.
Rich purple violet crystals adding to the sense of mystery :)

Material
Flower Cabochon
Plum AB Chinese Crystal Cube
Dark Purple Chinese Crystal Oval Bead
Dark Violet AB Faceted Round Chinese Crystal
Flat Birdcage Charm

just dark grey pearls between each charm.

Round Frame Heart Charm
Eiffel Charm
Flat Camera Charm
Live Laugh Love Charm
Aeroplane Charm

For Wen Yi,
I love the refreshing colours here paired on thick weaved chain!

You probably would have noticed by now that Joey likes to pile on the charms ;)
Regular chain for See Wen, but knowing Joey's penchant to create something different for each of her friends, a crown ring lodges mid way ;)

Tanzanite Swarovski Bicone
Metallic Silver Chinese Crystal Doughnut
Crown Ring
Carousal Charm
Birdhouse Charm
Eiffel Charm
Small Angel Wing Frame Charm

As much as we love our charm bracelets, there is always room for different concepts such as this asymmetrical one for Hui Yan!
Mint jade stones line one side of the bracelet (reminds me of Mintlove!), while the other feature snowflakes sandwiching the alphabets & Swarovski heart.
Also, the only piece among the lot that incorporates a flower cabochon ;)

Floss





Getting back to work after the 1 week CNY break, I had a sudden urge to come up with something sweet & girlish all over so this is it!

While details are mainly focused at 2 ends of the bracelet, center has mini hearts & faint pink crystals, just light sprinkles to keep things simple ;)

Material
Flower Cabochon
Pink Flower Ceramic Bead
Faint Pink Acrylic Round Bead
Pink Cat's Eye Heart Bead
Faint Pink AB Chinese Crystal Doughnut
Faint Pink AB Chinese Crystal Cube
Clear AB Multi Faceted Chinese Crystal

A very sweet way of preserving our favourite memories and have it worn close all the time, especially when Cheryl mentioned 1 of the dogs have passed away.

Material
Rose Pink AB Swarovski Heart
Tanzanite AB Swarovski Heart
Clear AB Swarovski Heart
Siam Red AB Swarovski Heart
Sapphire Blue AB Swarovski Heart
Custom Photo Charm


* If you are interested in having your own photo charm bracelet, do see the end of this blog post for a photo guideline & a rough idea on price, thanks!

Butterfly Links // Customization

Grouping these 2 customized orders in a blog post since they have a common factor: butterfly links :)
Interestingly, colours are at opposite ends though, read on!


Rainbow coloured, made even prettier with swarovski crystals :)
Main butterfly piece in the center, while the sides feature the mini version.

Swarovski Bicone colours from left to right
• fuchsia
• siam red
• peach rose
• cutrine yellow
• olivine
• peridot
• indicolite
• dark sapphire
• purple velvet
• light amethyst



 Do bear with the poorly taken photo 
(sorry, never planned to have this up on the blog so it was a quick snap meant just for Sylvia).

This was made a very long time ago, almost forgotten until I went through my photo albums the other day.
A year or two on, I fell more & more in love with it, finding this design to be a fine balance of casual & elegance.

Sylvia chose white beads for hers, but just like Mira's bracelet, I can already imagine the possible colour tweaking we can play with this ;)
Be it a single colour, a mix of shades or combining 2 or more colours, these two designs are very versatile!
