{ let’s ear it for… } September 2, 2009

 

Earrings…if I ever stepped out without them, I feel bare or semi-dressed. Not that they have to be dressy all the time, I sometimes wear studs too if I’m wearing a statement necklace, or if there are too much details on my top.

 

Somehow, earrings seem to complete a look. For me, I fiddle with them when I’m reading, thinking, or simply staring into space, day-dreaming. Guess they help me think. Guess they have a texture that I can feel easily (without looking like I’m fondling something). Guess when they swing near my face, I feel a tad more vibrant. It’s amazing how much a simple piece of accessory, a pair of earrings, can do. And seriously, I don’t even think about it unless I didn’t wear them. So, let’s hear (ear) it for…

Black is never out of style. And I’m so sure that many of you out there will vouch for this hue that spells classic beauty, sensational style with a hint of mystery and sensuality. It can go from downtown cool to uptown repertoire, from laid-back chick to show-stopping style. I love black’s dichotomy of austerity and ductility. Colors, even black, can be fun!

{ keys of inspiration ~ part II } July 8, 2009

 

These modern keys are given a twist from the past. Engraved with “Life”, “Dreams”, “Love” or “Secret”, they tell stories of secret yearnings, quiet admiration, or fantasies of another world. Like opening up doors that are closed, keys have always symbolized, at least for me, fresh opportunities and chances that are blessings from above and where beyond those doors, lies treasures that are most dear to heart – family, friendship and love.

Somedays, I wish to wear a simple ring…a casual fun finger-wear that I can touch and feel when I’m thinking on bus trips, or mindlessly finger as I gaze out of the window at the moving scenery.

These simple creations are grouped together for easy viewing. Price stated is for each ring. Do let me know which ring you fancy in each picture. All rings have an adjustable nickel-free band if you are sensitive to this metal.

{ when i was a little girl… } June 2, 2009

Inspired by the ribbons and bows that were in my dresses when I was a little girl, and paying tribute to my late daddy who used to tie my hair for me (yes, it was my daddy who loved to braid my hair for school), these pieces bring me back to my childhood days of so much fun and reverie.

 

And carousels…who doesn’t love them? Boys and girls alike, we all like these merry-go-rounds. And living in apartments with playgrounds, we kids couldn’t wait to head downstairs for some crazy climbing, digging and chasing around those modest carousels. They still hold a special place in my heart and I rejoice whenever I catch a glimpse of them in old estates. Not those modern synthetics one. They don’t make them like that anymore. The ones that we occasionally see at those big fairs and in overseas countries just ooze with romantic connotations – bright, glittering, and fairytale like.

 

New products! I love to wear flats and those ballet flats from Cotton On are my casual shoes. Sometimes, I just feel like dressing them up and thus, this idea! Even though I categorize them as shoe clips, they can be used as a brooch, a hair clip, or a multi-clip to adorn a plain top. Add some razzle-dazzle and something ordinary is transformed instantly! Let me know how you would like to use them and I’ll customize accordingly. Limited pieces and I sell them in pairs. Shoes not included, of course. 🙂

{ gold rush } May 27, 2009

 

Summer days are here! In full force than ever before. The weather didn’t used to be so bad. This heat is a poignant reminder that the Earth is really burning up.

 

Summer days = shimmery days. Why? I recall my childhood days when June meant school holidays and everything seemed to be cast in sun-glow – the swimming pools, the days out at the zoo, the sun coming out from the canopy of leaves above, and playing with sand at playgrounds. And as a child, I envied my aunts wearing those beautiful gold earrings that give such sparkle to these days. Now, you can give summer staples an instant hit of glam with these earrings. Wear it with everything from an elegant LBD to downtown denim. Just hook and go!

Another rainy day…recently, the weather is so erratic – a constant reminder of how our Earth is suffering on a daily basis. Next month’s posts are dedicated to our Earth in conjunction with Earth Day on April 22. I’ll share more in the next post. Remember Earth Hour. Do your part. Every small effort counts. Even if you think you are just 1 person.

 

Well, back. I keep on humming this song. I do like the lyrics.

B.J. Thomas – Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head lyrics

 

I love rainy days. Of course, when I’m not out and especially at night or in the wee hours of the morning. The smell is heavenly and the sound is so therapeutic when writing or creating pieces.

 

When I’m out, I’m one of those people who seldom carry an umbrella. I keep losing them! My excuse: my bag is very heavy already. And thus, these brolly-themed pieces allow my tongue-in-cheek reply whenever my friends question the whereabouts of my umbrella. “See! It’s here!”
