{ 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.

Old jazz playing in the background, the meandering Seine River in sight, sipping a cuppa alfresco style in a Paris sidewalk cafe in the late afternoon. These are the images that inspired me when crafting these necklaces. Trying to recapture the romanticism of bygone days, lace appliqués that are imported from Japan, are used as the centerpiece, while other elements wrap themselves around to create a flamboyant display that’s so associated with the French’s ardor.


To saunter down this season’s springtime catwalk, you’ll need some frills to mix n’ match – flouncy sheers, lace in tones of white, cream, silver & black, or small floral prints. If lace on a outfit is not your cup of tea, why not consider a handcrafted French-inspired lace necklace to update your look, display an ounce of romantic girlishness that’s one of the key looks this season?
