Jewelry Makeover – London Edition

If you ask me what the “must-have” in life is, I’d say “travel”.  Recently, a customer and a friend came back from London.  As her souvenirs, she brought back 4 vintage pieces from the Portobello Market – a rhinestone bracelet and 4 lovely little brooches.  She asked if I can custom design something for her with these lovely finds.

The first one was a no brainer because two of the pieces are just meant to be found together.  We simply paired up the bracelet with the gold rhinestone bow brooch as the size and the design match quite well together.  It was as simple as 1+1.

For the other two brooches, after going over a few ideas with her together.  We decided to make them into two separate necklaces.

Necklace #1:  Baroque Luxe

Necklace #2:  Victorian Chic

Hope you like we did for her.  If you would like to get a makeover for any of your special pieces, we’d love to hear from you.  Contact us at: customer@rocaille-design.com

Happy Friday!

Latest Street Style from Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a very fashionable city.  It’s home to almost every brand from low to high around the world.  There are ten Chanel stores in this city alone!

While walking around on my last day there, I tried to play street photographer to capture some of the stand out styles on the crowded streets.

It was really fun, but I apologize that some pics are a bit blurry…it is not easy to walk, shoot and try to be discreet at the same time. LOL.

Trip to Hong Kong…My Fav Spots

Just got back from my trip to Hong Kong, China and Japan.  I spent a few days in Hong Kong first….although mostly for work, I sneaked in a little bit of time to relax and enjoyed the city.

I’ve been to Hong Kong many times and just love the vibe in the city…fast pace, exciting, and vibrant!   Here are some of my favorite spots/moments on this trip:

View of the harbour early in the morning – stunning!

The Ritz Carlton Hotel (102nd to 118th floor in the ICC building)….the tallest hotel in the world.  Its roof top patio has the most stunning view!

IFC – International Financial Center in Central.

Nice to have a little down time to enjoy a drink on a patio with hubby at IFC.

Trying out great restaurants is a must when I travel.  This is one of the many great meals I had on this trip – 1 huge chilli crab, a couple of seasonal veggies, and 2 beers between my hubby and I at No Signboard – just heavenly!  🙂

Dinner at Nobu in Kowloon…what a view!

Unconventional Bohemian Approach

With Coachella, beach vacay, road trips, and summer just around the corner, we are lusting for anything that’s boho-glam.

Our Livia necklace draws inspiration from the free spirited colorful Gyspet (“Gypsy + Jet set”) lifestyle – “an unconventional bohemian approach to life” . An eclectic mix of semi-precious stones, beads, and vintage charms offers many wearable options.

Check out this insta-collage of  Livia II necklace.   Can you count how many ways we styled it?  It’s one necklace, but lots of possibilities.  

rule #1: Don’t follow the rules – Make it your own!


 Livia II necklace – turquoise, corals, raw ruby, and vintage charms.  Handmade in Vancouver, Canada

One Mile Lake

Took an unplanned short trip up to Whistler last week.  My husband and I found this beautiful lake just off the highway near Pamberton, BC.

Inspiration, Dream, Reality….

I am always so proud to see ROCAILLE jewelry in artistic fashion editorial.  The latest one is in the Plaid Magazine‘s Spring Summer 2011 issue – a vibrant and passionate editorial inspired by the infamous female Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo.

Frida painted the diary of her life.  Each painting, often a self-portrait, captures a moment in her life.  She showed us how art reflects and constructs our understanding of ourselves, others, and the world we live in.  She once said – “I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.”  Her amazing work has inspired a talented team to create this dreamy vibrant magazine spread.
