Today’s post is a little different than usual and very special indeed, I had dinner with a princess ^_^ I’ve been very secretly excited about doing this post for quite some time now!
There was a very special package in my letter box the other day… Such cute bags it came in too…
And lovely boxes inside that…
The super special announcement that I’ve bee wanting to make is that Dora from “Gems 4 Everyone” has designed a special collection of jewelery inspired by me! That’s right… me!!
How *awesome* is that???
Gems 4 Everyone make beautiful beaded unique jewelery.
The collection is called “Dinner with the Princess” 😀
I’ll show you some of the other lovely pieces they sent me so you can see that they make all kinds of jewelery not just the OTT pearls and bows that I love!
I’m not used to writing about things like this so imagine me putting on my best game show girl voice as I walk you through the show case 😉
Please note that while the prices are listed in Malaysian Ringgit (RM) international buyers can pay via US$ via Paypal.
These are beautiful heart drop earrings I like them because they are very light and delicate. They are long and dangly but not at all heavy so after wearing them for a whole day my ear lobes weren’t at all sore.
Material: China crystal, Silver finding
This crystal bracelet is one of their standard designs but who could say no to something so sparkly and pink 😀
I wish I could show you how much it sparkles in person! I think it’s very versatile because it’s delicate enough to be worn during the day but still blingy enough to go out with in the evening.
Gems 4 Everyone also make a lot of much larger statement necklaces like this piece.
This one is extra cool because from a distance the clear beads are invisible and it looks as if the pretty red flowers are suspended in mid air around your neck.
For those with less over the top tastes there are of course more traditional options too 😉
The first time I wore this one out I got quite a few compliments, it’s nice to wear something so summery in the dead of winter! I love the tiny little pearls ^_^
Now all of those pieces were very lovely… but what I really wanted to show you was my collection!
~Dinner with the Princess~
The set has 3 pieces comprising of a ring, choker and bracelet named after the three dinner courses.
The ring is a cluster explosion of pearls, tiny pearlised seed beads and crystal beads.
It comes on a band made of beads for the perfect fit. I love rings with non-traditional bands because it makes them so much more comfortable.
It is *definitely* an attention getting ring, there is no mistaking that you are a pearl lover when you have one of these babies. For those of you in cold climates you can wear it easily outside with gloves by tuning it into your hand ^_^
A stunning cultured pearl choker offset with Swarovski crystals and a crown pendant.
I don’t know what to say about this other than… *drool*
I just love the attention to detail in this piece, the inner row of pearls is slightly smaller so it sits perfectly flat on your neck. And the crystals… oh the crystals! As if it wasn’t pretty enough they’ve added crystals between the pearls!
The crystals shine beautifully and at a dinner party they really catch the light and draw the eye. The little crown is the perfect way to finish a choker like this and I can tell you that wearing it you really do feel like absolute royalty!
A lovely bracelet featuring pearls, dangling crystals and small delicate metal mesh bows.
This piece is the most delicate out of the collection and I just love it to death ^_^
I love the little mesh bows on this, it really brings a lovely flavor to the little dangly jewels and pearls. I also love the way that something so cute and small fits in perfectly and doesn’t get overwhelmed by the other pieces in the collection.
I love all of the pieces they created and I’m absolutely honored to have a collection inspired by me!
