Bling Bling

Jewelry isn't my thing. The few pieces of diamonds from my wedding trousseau are hardly ever worn. Partly because however I manage it, diamonds don't really go well with pyjamas nor tatty t-shirts and shorts... which is de rigueur when you work from home.

But the jewelry that Sinfonia makes is so fun. They're not made with precious stones but they're attractive and have a sense of humour. The Daughter walked into my bedroom this morning and purloined Button Heaven for herself, and I almost wore Peach Mirage to go inspect the construction of the new house... but I wasn't sure what the workers would think of me, so I went in tatties and slippers instead. I put on Charlotte's Web to teach a class last month and I felt cheeky the whole time I was talking. I also like Pearl Medley and Glam Jane very much.

I'm not sure which is more fun. Wearing tongue-in-cheek jewelry made with a touch of class, or making tongue-in-cheek jewelry with a touch of class. I rather think making them is more fun, and selling them for money is even more fun. But since I'm all thumbs and can't do much else really well except write, I'm happy to have found Petunia's Purveyor of Pretty Pieces at Sinfonia.

I did find a lovely piece at the airport en route to Beijing too. Its called Madame Papillon. And here it is below.

Writer and very good photographer too! Glad the parcel arrived safe and sound. Another customer in Sg is not so lucky.

I agree she makes gorgeous pieces. I bought the Pearl Medly for a friend's birthday and it looks so good on her!

Love that red flower! What flower is it?

Sinfonia - It was all nicely wrapped in layers of fabric bags, plastic pockets, crepe paper, tied with a string and in a thick cardboard envelope. Everything came in tip top shape.

Ting - I saw the Pearl Medley on your friend on your blog. So pretty. I have one too.

OKC - That's a red frangipani flower from my tree. My friend passed me her cutting and after it grew, I took another cutting. The flowers are a deep velvet pink... almost red.
