{ alice in wonderland ~ part I } March 1, 2010

Inspired by the fantastical world created by Lewis Carroll in his lovely tale, ‘Alice In Wonderland’, this series of necklaces, earrings and bracelets will transport you to that whimsical dreamscape, where all the characters are so out-of-the-world amusing. I can’t wait to watch Tim Burton’s rendition of this tale, and of course, Johnny Depp’s portrayal as the Mad Hatter. I’m so looking forward to the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party scene. The trailer is enough to get me super excited! It’s so dark, mysterious, imaginative, quirky and colorful!

Alice In Wonderland bracelets will be uploaded in the next week’s post. For a preview, join pling’s fanpage!

Collaborating with an American artist that I’ve come to adore, I present to you pling’s latest collection, a tribute to the bizarre tale of a girl, her dream world, and the curious characters she met in that unusual dreamscape.

{ winter wonderland } November 29, 2009

A dash of gold in a blanket of silvery sheen reminds me of twinkling Christmas lights in a snowy city. Sadly, our summery island has no snowflakes teasing our faces as we saunter down the streets, buying gifts for our loved ones and meeting long-time friends for that warm cuppa tea and coffee. But movies kept that image alive within me and one day, I hope to spend Christmas in a place where there is snow. And for all you lovelies out there in the falling snow, keep warm and take care. I sure hope it’s not so wintry that it hurts.

 

These creations mix gold and silver color, and the results can be pretty amazing. Some allow you to jumble girlish charm with boyish chic, spruce up that midnight party glamor with simple allure, or even return to the simplicity of everyday life, noticing things that you have not. What’s life without taking a moment to appreciate life’s little wonders and small gestures of kindness, right?

{ 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.
