{ 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. 🙂

{ in actual words ~ part I } May 12, 2009

 

Words matter to me. But not when they are uttered separate from the heart, or in spite of the heart. I have this small obsession with singular words as I think they would mean different things to different people, and that is the beauty of it. Let your imagination run, or let your heart speak. Or hint at a past longing, a forgotten memory. In this concrete world, we might not be free to say certain things close to our heart, but at least, we could wear it near our hearts! Isn’t it great?

 

The 1st in a series that I will continue to make, and later on introduce some customizable ones (after I have actually figured out some techniques and find those missing tools). I’m very excited about the customized series, which I really hope to master soon and bring them to you lovelies out there who have been supporting me and pling this past 1.5 year since our inception.

{ retro gold } January 25, 2008

 

A splash of vintage gold goes a long way this season, what with yellow, petrol blue & neon being the must-have hues this year. With these statement pieces in retro gold, you can inject a dose of the seventies hell-may-care glamor or take a romantic literal lead into the imagery depicted on the necklace.

 

And because these necklaces are what every cool girl has (at least one!), I’m bringing them back as must-have extras for dressing up your plains, jeans or simply adding an attitude to your color combination. To avoid: dangling earrings when donning these necklaces. (They are eye-catching enough!) Simple studs will do. Now, isn’t that easy? It’s wear and go!
