as a little girl, i already loved dolling up—my mom would buy me pretty trinkets like earrings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, rings… the works.

and growing up, i have amassed quite a collection of accessories (quite an understatement, according to my friends). one day, i realized that there’s often something that i wanted changed about the jewelry i buy and then it hit me—maybe I should try my hands in designing my own!

and so i did.

i marched to a beading shop, asked them what are the basics i needed, and voila! i made my first pair of earrings. i guess i own enough accessories to know what goes where and how things are connected, so designing & making my own stuff came quite naturally.

i started making little gifts for my friends and soon, i had lots of requests for me to ‘set up shop’. after some delay (a relocation to hong kong for a new job, a bout of lethargy, a very busy schedule, among other things), i finally got round to setting up my little online space for my own little collection.

each piece in the ‘gilty pleasures’ collection is a reflection of my mood & inspiration at different moments. sometimes quirky, sometimes elegant, sometimes feminine and ofttimes dramatic, each piece mirrors a part of my personality. i believe that there are very many facets to a woman, and i also believe that accessories are a way to express outwardly what we are inwardly (of course, they are also a great way to spruce up ANY outfit!).

so go on– take a tour around this space and i’m sure you’ll be able to find something that catches your fancy. and don’t worry– no guilt attached!
