{ lovely as a tree } October 22, 2009


First of all, apologies for this late upload and for ‘disappearing’ for a while. Been back since last week, a little jet-lagged and my mum has taken ill. But she’s alright now (Praise to the Lord! And thanks for all your prayers! I feel very blessed.), feisty as ever. I’m finding some time amidst shuttling between home and hospital to get pling ready. I’m excited about my new pieces, especially after my trip and the tons of inspiration I got from it.


First up, trees. I continued to be inspired by them. Gardens as well. I’ve seen the most beautiful garden in my life. I think our summery island has none to compare. But still, we have plenty of trees. Sharing 2 of my pictures with you (I had a real hard time picking them out of my thousands of pictures)…

I can’t agree with Wilson Flagg more when he said that all that is cheerful and delightful in our memories will always be associated with trees or against the background of trees. Sharing another quotation that I like. I hope you will find the quote and these pieces as delightful as I did creating them.

The trees are God’s great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.

{ fall for silver } September 1, 2008

Raindrops spatter the ground. Grey clouds loom threateningly in the sky. Signs that Fall is here. As fashion houses change their collection, we start switching to clothes that mimic the weather – be it in color or in corresponding thickness.


What’s fantastic for Fall are these 92.5 sterling silver earrings. Match them perfectly with your greys, blacks or anything in between. Silver are classic as they are lovely. Affordable and beautiful, these silver pieces look good with any style.


With proper care, these silver earrings can last you a lifetime. To minimize scratches and other damage, store them in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment from your other accessories. Wearing them regularly is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up. Avoid spraying your perfume on them and be careful when you are dabbing your scent underneath your ears. Best to put your earrings on after you have put on your perfume. To clean them, it would be good to invest in a anti-tarnish silver polishing cloth.


This Fall, fall for silver.

With a dash of 925 silver against black wood or semi-precious onyx stones, these earrings connote modern chic and easy confidence. It’s no wonder why they are fail-safe additions to your wardrobe.
