Athena Crystal Headpiece

Here am I modeling for my first headpiece. It was quite hard to get a good photo as I was struggling in between giving a good pose, taking the right angle, focusing on the headpiece and snapping the picture myself! Oh well, this is the best I can do. I'll pick on a model next time.

This headpiece is made of some reclaim materials and new ones. It contains brass chains & swarovski crystals, center part down the middle joining together by an exquisite wire wrapped centerpiece.

Available in my etsy shop: Athena Crystal Headpiece


Jeweled Crown

What inspires me! :)

Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

{ photo sources: Cha Guan La Maison Du The Montreal Tea Blog }

Today is the Mooncake Festival also known as The Mid-Autumn Festival which falls on the 15th day of the 8th Lunar month of the Chinese calender. It is believe that the moon tonight will be the roundest and brightest.

Traditionally at night, the Chinese will sit outside the garden, admiring the moon, accompanied with a slice of yummy mooncake, and a nice cup of Oolong tea.

Meanwhile the most happiest of all are the children who will be carrying colorful paper lantern outside and lit the whole front gate with colorful mini lanterns. Ah... I miss those nostalgic moments...

Luxuriously sweet

{ photos sources: SweetAmbs }

I had a sweet tooth! That's why I'm sharing these visual of charming lovely cookies with you. Luxuriously decorated cookies that are too pretty to be eaten. I found them here : { SweetAmbs }. The owner, Amber is a graduate of the Culinary Art Institute of America and she blogs about her cookie art and inspires all of us.

She says, "Creating the flavor of the cookie is the fun part. I use orange zest, vanilla beans and cardamon, which are reminiscent of my childhood". Hmm... makes me wanna go bake me some cookies later.

Dolly Rockin Crystal Tassel Bracelet

I love tassels... they're very elegant. Adding tassels to something will instantly make them look alluring & charming, like this Dolly Rockin Crystal Tassel Bracelet.

Beautiful vintage feel bracelet made of gorgeous Swarovski crystals and some antique brass components. The combination of Swarovski crystals make this tassel bracelet sparkles, literally!

And for the luscious tassels, I’ve added a little bit of wire wrapping for uniqueness and charm. This bracelet measures 6” long with extra chain of 2” for adjustment.

Distinct and seductive, Dolly Rockin Crystal Tassel Bracelet is polished and proper for an assortment of occasions.

Making A Comeback

Pink Cherry Blossom Earrings

Green Mosaic Earrings

Leafy Earrings

Pixie Dust Shoulder Duster Earrings

Mariposa Earrings

These are some old designs that I've been working on. They are a lot more simple than what I normally create but I think once in a while we should have a few simple jewelry to go with our everyday outfit. I use my extra stash of Swarovski crystals, brass and copper wires and fashioned them into dainty yet lovely pieces, and they are much more affordable in price.

Love em'? Will be listed soon in my shop.
