It's been a really long break for me since I last made any jewellery and posted them for sale. Occasionally I'd pull something out, make a complete necklace, not take photos & just keep them in a bag. Not quite sure why, but things got really stale, and I felt like I had nothing new to offer. I don't even know if this time round I'll manage anything spectacular, but I do have some beads that I don't want to keep in the drawers, left to be forgotten. So hopefully I do those beads some justice, and we'll see how things go.
Novus means a new beginning, a fresh start. Hopefully I dig deep enough to find something, to call as Earring Addict's own once again.
Novus kickstarts with a classic design that everyone is familiar with, Swarovski opal starburst matched with amethyst drops on sterling silver hooks for the starstruck and the bejewelled set. Plenty of pastel tones to fit into Spring's latest colour palette. The amethyst drops measure a hefty 1.5cm height, if i could measure it in carats i'm sure it wouldn't be a lacklustre number.
Novus measures a total length of 32mm.

Claire is the look of elegance, class & grace. Many try to seek her attention, but in the process find out more about themselves than her. She listens patiently, and delivers her wisdom in the softest touch possible, before leaving you feeling like the biggest fool for not seeing it earlier. Her clarity of thought belies a character that holds more within.
Bearing a pair of mysterious black agate that seems entirely opaque in some angles, Claire shows her true depth with the agate inclusions, telling of the strength of her character. Topping it off with matte black faceted glass beads & 14k diamante ear posts. Claire's grace measures a skyscraping 7cm.

*Update: Sneak peeks here
So this is something that I'm really excited to share. There's this cool little cafe/space in Duxton Rd, opened recently by a friend of a friend. They sell interesting books, musicians can come in to use their space to stage a little performance, people will be invited to come in to talk about social issues (migrant workers & minimum wage are the 2 topics lined up for March). They also hold some really fun & wacky stuff like powerpoint KTV as well as Music Camp. They're all fun & wacky & serious at the same time. Just the kind of place I like to go. :D
And next Sunday they'll be holding a fortnightly flea market, Sunday Eclectica, which i'll be taking part. We've even got a cozy little corner, so hopefully you will get a nice space to take a look at our stuff and generally have a good time. :)
So here are the details for you to make your way down
Date: 13 Mar, Sunday
See you there! And yes sneaks coming up soon!

I've generally never been a huge fan of lockets coz the local supplies always didn't yield very pretty lockets, nor seem sturdy enough for long time use. But recently i managed to get my hands on a batch of heirloom lockets that were made from the same machines that made lockets 50 years ago. Yes, proper heirloom stuff made to last for decades.
I figured this locket would be a good piece of jewelry to start this decade. Aeryn features a thick brass filigree locket measuring 45mm width. I probably can't explain how good this feels in your hands, except that it's got a really good weight & sturdiness that you get when you touch good quality products. Some things just feel solidly built and give you that assurance y'know.
Currently on a 37" antique brass finished cable chain, length is customizable. For more views on this lovely, click here, here & here.
I know that the price may seem exceptionally high (and i'm not marking up much on it, not that i usually do but you get my point), but i'd assure you when this lasts you at least 10 years, you'd probably look at it differently.

Some people want it all
But i don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you
- Alicia Keys, If I Ain't Got You
Some men will tell you they'll buy you diamond rings, pretty dresses and sparkly things. Here's for you to say to them that I'll buy my own, Thank you very much.

The refreshing rains have come along, and Green Bottles captures that refreshing feeling perfectly for me. The cool, transclucent pale green glass beads has such a softness to it that reminds me of the cool air that is left behind by the heavy, cold rains. I've match a yellow-based polymer clay bead that is dotted with colourful flowers with the soft green glass beads, and as an accent, i've included an irregular opalescent glass nugget to complete this bracelet. Green Bottles measures 7.5" long.

Paul Varjak's love story probably wouldn't have been as fascinating if the lady he pined after wasn't Holly Golightly. The way she reveled in the male attention, yet behave like an innocent bambi when she realised she could trust him. That probably is one of the modern fairytales that everybody loves to hate, yet hates to love. Breakfast at Tiffany's features a Love brass charm, that hangs off a 24" brass toned necklace.
Remember whoever's heart you're holding in your hands, remember to tread lightly.

If you watch Vampire Diaries, you'll know what i'm talking about. Mystic Falls, home to the supernatural, vampires, werewolves, amongst i'm sure more creatures that we'll see as the seasons unfold. Mystic Falls is also home to a few love stories, a story of strong friendships, and of growing up. We all know how all that feels. Almost aww-inducing.
The 2 hand blown glass beads from Perth kind of remind me of that deep pooling of mystery, as well as something less sinister, and perhaps a little squishy love. When sometimes the darkness threatens to overcome us, we always step out of it, that bit more grown up, that bit stronger.
Msytic Falls measures 3.8cm tall and comes complete with 14k gold plated ear hooks.

Seeing Double features our adorable girl that appeared in the much loved I'm not worried, I'm Happy necklace. This time round we found her pint sized sister that bears a striking resemblance to her. Decked out in the exact same wellies, polka dotted scarf, and raincoat!
The two sisters measure 3cm & 2cm respectively, and hang off a 24" necklace.
Tuesday, October 12, 2010
Zoe features a pair of 1.5cm gold drops that hang off 14k gold ear posts for a simple, classic look. Like they say don't reinvent the wheel if you don't have to. The classics will always bring that touch of class & style to any outfit you wear. Zoe measures a total of 2.3cm.

Ribbon & Twine features a 14mm tall haematoid quartz with the lightest pink streaks against a clear quartz oval. Like pink ribbons that are wielded deftly by rhythmic gymnasts, the haematoid streaks across the clear quartz with the lightest of touches and brightens up with its delightful presence.
The black electroplated ball chain, as hardy as twine, serves to anchor the oval for a contrasting presence. Finally finishing the 23" necklace with an elegant 14k gold plated tab.

Elisabeth features some really gorgeous moss agate teardrop beads. With some really luscious looking gemmy babies, this is one of my favourite necklaces from my collection of recently accomplished necklaces. Simple and easily classy, the green & gold combination will set you apart from the others trying to out-bling you at a party, or at a casual occasion. Almost effortless i say.

Some people proclaim strength of physicality, some of resolution and some of faith. For me when everything else starts crumbling, i believe strongest in resolution, only because i am pig-headed and sometimes absolutely stubborn.
I'm sure you have your own strength, however may the earrings Chains of Steel remind you that one of us, is only as strong as all of us. Sometimes you don't always have to be the winner. And if everyone can succeed while linking arms, that's quite a mighty feat too.
Chains of steel consists of 6 interlinked rhodium rings and measures a total of 4cm inclusive of the rhodium earposts.

Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
Which is so unlike you.
It's funny how in this day, expressing love has somehow become nauseating, and being cheeky in love is the new currency. Either way, the flower which we call a rose by any other name will still smell as sweet to you.
Roses are red feature petite golden rose bushes, with faceted aqua glass ovals & teeny, sparkling swarovskis in fuchsia & lilac. Roses are red measure 3cm excluding 14k gold plated ear hooks.
