The name speaks it all! BAGaholic charm bracelet has a mini-clutch, a mini-tote and a mini-hobo - nothing on my list of creations (well, so far) is as sophisticated as these lapis and silver bag charms. Joined together with doubled-up fine sterling silver loop chain and lobster clasps.

HK$ 500.00

*This one I'll keep for my dear daughter, a "BAGaholic-to-be" till her wrist is big enough to wear a bracelet.*

For the city in deep distress,
For our everlasting "Land of Smiles".

her clay brooch

What's more fun to make than these? Back to basics - glue things up, like a kid's art assignment. For my dearest 3 'her's - my mother, my sister, and my daughter.

When will my lovely little girl be able to do simple handcrafts like this with me?? 
*Orders for similar ones to these are welcomed.*

The Flower Picker

I know I know, Leaf.. this is not quite the Chinese antique look you expected (neither did I expect it to look like this). I failed to source the blue and white porcelain beads you requested at the beads market (tho' once found at Etsy's supplies), so I substituted with some cloisonne.. and loads of Czech glass and crystal beads, also cat's eye stones. A silver loop connector unites the parts with a big oval Japanese tensha bead; finished off with a vintage flower toggle.

A symphony of ladylike flowers and funky bead fringes. Leaf, I hope you and your lady would treasure her as much as I do. 

*This is a special customization. One piece off, no remakes.*

Etsy: Brookie Cookie's Bows

My first purchase at Etsy. (I'm sure it will be more!) Many thanks to Liz - for being so kind, prompt, generous and having followed through my order. I just dearly love the bib necklace and couldn't wait but wore it to a dinner appointment straightaway!
Thanks also for the lovely extra gift so that Diaz won't have to get jealous. :)

Glass and crystal beads.. never a fan of them. Thus I have used those to practice on my upcoming bracelet: BAGaholic, at the same time aiming to make it wearable alone.

HK $80.00 (single piece, exclusive of ear-stud)

Double Happiness 囍

The symbol of "Double Happiness" is something that cannot be missed during a Chinese wedding - whether it may be a traditional one or among those which have a more contemporary set-up. The symbol, which is composed of two standard Chinese characters denoting happiness, signifies the doubled joy of the newlywed couple.

Beautifully handcrafted by rose gold, silver and large round cultured freshwater pearls, then threaded through gold-filled wire and a simple sterling silver chain. The necklace is measured about 24 inches, with the pendants of 2 inches each sitting nicely right at the chest level.

Classic piece to go with a Chinese wedding gown, whether for yourself, a family member or a girl friend.

HK$ 1,100.00

Kindly be noted: Due to the high cost involved, I am happy to share the price breakdown with you - but I can tell here that my markup is less than 10%.

*Completely made to order, just for you.*
