Colombo Flea Market 

 I participated in the Colombo Flea Market today and here are a couple of snaps:

Handbags

 
Shoes

 
Clothes
   
 
Earrings

Sold pretty much 50% of everything I took and donated the rest to the welfare society. I actually feel lighter and better now that I’ve given away stuff I do not use or wear anymore. Was certainly a good experience and will probably participate next time as well.

New pieces of jewellery 

I’ve been collecting sea shells for years and I’ve got a good collection from all parts of my little island. I’ve sort of run out of where to keep them all so I asked my friend to create pieces of jewellery for me out of some of them. The following three images show three different pieces but I’ve a total of ten new pieces.

Gorgeous wristlet

 

Layered necklace

New buys from ALKE!

There were newbies out by ALKE a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t help myself…. so I bought three new necklaces 😀

What I really like about this handmade jewellery site is that the items can be personalised, making them one of a kind. The owner is a close friend of mine which also makes things a lot easier for me. I have been finding it difficult to get long length necklaces for myself and so she customised a few pieces to suit my taste. Take a look!

All three beautiful pieces costed me a total of Rs. 1,700 which is pretty darn decent. Surprisingly, my husband (who does not like costume jewellery and anything of that sort) loves all three of these pieces as well (yay me :D).

Newbies – bangles!

Just couldn’t help myself you see! There was an Indian design sale going on at Cinnamon Lakeside on Monday up to Wednesday and I visited the sale with the intention of only looking around and really purchasing anything.

There was one stall with jewellery of all sorts and also these beautiful thread and beadwork bangles. There were over ten different colours and it took me quite a while to decide on these two colours alone. They were Rs. 900 a pair which I thought was an okay price. I do like how the colours can be worn together or even as a pair of just two. Like I said, I just couldn’t help myself!

A little DIY

I’m not a huge diy type of person although I like purchasing what others make themselves (lol). But recently I came across this turquoise bead/stud ball and thought I could really make some use out of it. I actually found it in my mum’s room amongst a bunch of junk so I thought I could attach a plain thin chain and have it as sort of a pendant. It took me a while to get the chain attached to the teeny hook but after multiple attempts and chipped nails (tweezer didn’t help) I did it and here’s the final product!
