{ alice in wonderland ~ part II } March 9, 2010

On the weekend that had just passed, I went to watch Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland in 3D at the cinema. No spoilers, I would divulge.

I love the CG, the dark but vivid hues, the foreground/background juxtaposition, Alice’s whimsical stripy gowns, and the white queen/red queen battles. The story is changed from the original Lewis Carroll’s tale, giving the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) a much heavier role and injecting some romantic elements in the story. Some new characters appeared, much to my surprise. I liked some of the twists, but disliked some. Having said that, making a movie is difficult. And what’s more, interpreting a classic, particularly this story, and NOT moving this fantasy tale to cutesy-ness, if you get what I mean. I’m kind of glad that Tim Burton kept to his signature style, which is still a genre on its own. The art direction, makeup and costume design are to be admired.

After watching the film, this is part II of my own interpretation of Alice In Wonderland. Collaborating with American artist, I hope you will find these bracelets adding loveliness to your wrist, and for a fun day out! Let’s get immersed in our own version of Wonderland, whatever and wherever it might be…

{ skeleton keys } November 14, 2009

 

Remember the joy when you received your 1st set of keys to the house as you turn of age? Or the excitement on the vast possibilities and future jubilation when you turn the keys to your new home? Or sweet nostalgia as you handled the keys to a very special box where memories and precious things are kept? Keys mean so much…a place of security, a home you call your own, or something you want to keep secret and only you would know and understand what the contents mean to you.

 

These skeleton key necklaces are a continuation of my obsession with them – their simple beauty, or for some, their extremely intricate details. Popular in the late 1800s, these keys conjure images of vintage furniture, classical homes, Gothic churches and antiqued chests. The possibilities of imagination are endless when the old (the key necklaces) and the new (your outfit) co-exist in fashion and style.
