we're moving house! amidst all the chaos, i have managed to create this:

necklace rose aqua turquoise blue stunning gorgeous unique

winter peach.

the contrast between the iciness of the green turqouise and the warmth of the peach rose creates a stunningly beautiful unique necklace. the focal point of this piece is the peach rose which is to be worn slightly off-center. surrounding it are lovely green turquoise wire-wrapped beads in gold designer wire. it closes with a gold lobster clasp.

the necklace measures roughly 44cms (17.3inches) from end to end and has a 9cm (3.5inch) extension chain, for when you want to wear it longer.

beautiful, gorgeous, stunning, feminine, floral. a real eye-catcher.
two new listings:

wear tyche's heart and be lucky!

this stunning bracelet has five chrysoprase chalcedony round beads that are wire-wrapped and linked to rows of green and champagne swarovski crystals. it is fastened by a gold toggle clasp which features a gold heart locket. watch it catch and reflect light!

tyche is a greek deity (roman equivalent: fortuna) and governs fortune and prosperity.

it measures 18cms (7inches) in length and can fit most wrists.

gorgeous. stunning. elegant.


deep red for passion.

hanging from inverted silver filigree hearts are wire-wrapped blood-red teardrop glass crystals. at the base of the earring hook is a tear-shaped red sapphire. the earrings will fall 8cms (3.15inches) from your piercing.

eye-catching, stunning, a perfect conversation piece!


i'm pretty pleased with these pieces as they have turned out to be gorgeous and stunning. the photo of tyche's heart above is unedited. that is the afternoon sun caught and reflected by the crystals. beautiful jewelry!

i feel honoured to have my "the blues" necklace included in a denim-inspired treasury curated by daffy (abbasgirl). what a lovely way to wake up to a message informing me of this.

have a blessed sunday. 
i have made some sales yesterday (6 sales) and have received messages for custom orders. thought i just might share with you my bestseller. i have already sold four of these babies, and i have a custom order for two more:

necklace lariat crystal hibiscus unique pink

something unique!

this piece will remind you of the tropics, of sweet-smelling flowers and being carefree. this unique lariat-style necklace is made of a very delicate and dainty silver chain. on one end of the necklace is a floral toggle clasp. a single hibiscus is suspended on a silver loop, and this will sit on the side of your neck when worn. on the other end of the chain is a cascade of various shades of pink czech glass crystals, swarovski crystals, rose quartz, opal flower, and a pink glass pearl. you will also find a single lime green czech glass crackle in this cascade to add interest to the piece. this also represents the green of the tropics.

floral, dainty, feminine, unique, playful

etsy lesson #2: don't accept international money orders.

i did the mistake of agreeing to accept an international money order for $20, the item value was $17 and i charged $3 for shipping and handling. i went to the bank this morning to deposit the money order, only to find out that there is a $10 bank fee! after converting USD to AUD, i got $21.01 for the money order less the bank's fee, i just received $11.01 after selling a $17 item. not fair. *sniffs*

on to other things, i listed two new items today.

what better way to celebrate your emancipation than by wearing something symbolic?

this long necklace features a gold plated 3D birdcage with a gate that slides up. it has three czech glass trumpet flowers and a single leaf to add interest to the cage. it hangs from a dainty and unique antique bronze chain and has two wings hanging from the lobster clasp, which will hang from your nape as you wear it.

i shall start with the not-so-good news. i've had my first etsy heartbreak happen to me three weeks back. someone supposedly bought two items from me, but it turned out that she was a non-paying buyer. initially i waited for her payment, then after 5 days i contacted her via convo and also sent her an invoice. she replied two days later telling me that she didn't have a paypal account, but just wanted to pay using her credit card. i told her no worries, you don't have to have a paypal account to pay using your credit card through paypal and proceeded in giving her a step-by-step guide on how to do it, including a screenshot of the paypal page where she had to click to pay without having to sign up. three days later, i heard nothing from her. i saw her online in gmail and asked whether she was still interested in the items, to which she replied --- "i'm no longer interested, they are wonderful and gorgeous but it's too much hassle for earrings. you can give me negative feedback, i have six businesses and it's not gonna hurt me." i mean, huh? it just broke my heart, that.


good thing i have made something to somehow make me feel better. the siren necklace:

siren. necklace handmade wire-wrapped turquoise blue ocean sea unique


from the waves her song beckons, lures and traps a mariner willing to listen to her hymn.

hand-formed silver wire form waves, and the base of this unique pendant. wire-wrapped turquoise swarovski crystals are intertwined with the silver base. the focal point of this pendant is a deep blue fan-shaped glass, wire-wrapped with silver wire. flanking it are sapphire briolettes, clear ab teardrop crystals, turquoise czech glass beads, pinkish teardrop glass beads and swarovski crystals, all wire-wrapped and hand-formed. the pendant hangs from a very delicate and dainty silver chain measuring 50cms (around 19.7inches) from end to end and is secured by a silver bolt ring.

unique, handmade, elegant, stunning. a real conversation-starter.



remember i have touched on the subject of a dubai account? it looks very promising. so far, i have sent 15 items and i am looking at filling some orders for christmas. wives of expatriates will be having an affair in december and hopefully they will commission me to make some pieces for them. keeping fingers crossed.
