Swarovski Choker Necklace - A Custom Design

Posting images of a custom order for a Swarovski choker necklace to match a black strapless tube dress. I handwrapped what felt like millions of Swarovski crystals of ranging sizes, shapes and colours and crafted a 15 inch choker necklace that is simply dripping with decadence. My favourite has to be the screw in vintage round clasp which is studded with tiny diamontes that I found rummaging around Hong Kong. Took me 7-8 hours of toiling away, not excluding coming up with the design but very pleased with the end result!

This custom order retailed at USD$100.

I feel like making one for myself now in gold tone! (I am totally obsessed with gold)

Earrings: More briolette madness!

Continuing to indulge my fascination with briolettes =)

Just a quick note: Each piece is made to order, and hand made - I have sore fingers to prove it! Hence, there will be very slight variations from photos but this means that every piece is unique. If you'd like different colours in the crystals/beads used, just ask!

No. 4: Chandelier Tears

Inspired by a hanging chandelier, this pair of earrings features carefully handwrapped Swarovski crystals and faceted crystal briolettes suspended from a "hanging" gold plated casting.

Should you prefer a different colour combination, I'm happy to customise it.

Price: SOLD!

No. 5: Feather Chandelier

Amber crystal faceted briolettes suspended from handwrapped Swarovski crystal strands featuring alternating dark red and purple crystals. Focal piece is a vintage brass feather stamping - of which I only have enough to make 2 pairs!

Price: $40 USD

Earrings: "Waterfall of Butterflies"

No.2: "Waterfall of Butterflies" Earrings

A stunning pair of earrings that instantaneously brightens up a simple outfit or adds just some more bling to an already glamorous one!

I found these amazing gorgeous tiny little gold butterflies in a vintage stash and thought they looked so pretty together. So I created a 'waterfall' of 14K gold chain and these butterflies as earrings. I added a mixed strand of Swarovski crystals, 14K gold fill beads and fire-polished Czech beads as a focus. AB clear and dark crystal briolettes add the finishing touches to this unique masterpiece.

I only have enough of these butterflies to make 3 pairs!
If you are interested in a silver pair with silver butterflies, I am able to custom make it for you.

Price: $40 USD

No.1: "Ode to Nature" Necklace with Large Vintage Gold Plated Leaf and Oval Lucite Pendant Centrepiece

My first post!

No.1: "Ode to Nature" Necklace
This one-off necklace draws inspiration from the beautiful greenery in Sydney that I really miss as I have just relocated to Hong Kong. The centrepiece consists of a large vintage 14K very life-like gold plated leaf casting and two oval faceted lucite pendants with a dark brown wooden bead and cascading gold chain. I used a combination of vintage 1950s glass amber teardrops, gold filled beads, metalicised plastic beads, Swarovski bicones and Czech glass beads in hues of brown, orange and green. This is all strung on strands of 14K gold chain with tubular gold plated pewter beads.

The necklace measures 18 inches end to end. Centrepiece sits just below my clavicle.

I can add an additional chain link so that length is adjustable up to an additional two inches.
Price: SOLD!!
