So, one of the whole reasons I decided to start writing this blog, was because of a girl named Bubbi and a "little" jewelry blog called DSK. I was looking for cool things to do with my hair, and came across Bubbi's videos and website off Youtube. I thought her hairstyling was super cute, and I tried to copy some (with little success, since my hair is the complete opposite of typical smooth asian hair). Then I saw a video she had on her page titled DSK Jewelry..and me, loving anything sparkly, I had to check it out. I instantly fell in love with a lot of the pieces I saw and I had to get my hands on some. So I started saving up my money and the first piece I was able to buy was the Bubbi necklace. Purple is one of my favorite colors, and that dark blue heart crystal went so well with it. :) For the past 2 months, I have been on this buying spree of DSK things. The pictures are small, cause the X-Large size wouldn't fit on my blog section. =/ but I swear that they look amazing in the original format. Just click on them to see them in high definition
My interactions with Stephanie have always been excellent and she has always answered my e-mails in speedy fashion. I like reading about her big move to Seattle and getting used to living there. I know I will be feeling some of the same feelings once I start going to Brook's at the beginning of January. I admire Stephanie a lot for doing this amazing jewelry business. It's not hard to tell that a LOT of people buy her stuff, and she is constantly busy with tons of orders, especially with the holiday season! Doing something you love is the dream. It's nice to see that you can be successful with something you love to do. :D
So this post is mainly to show my DSK jewelry haul. I can't help it. I have 7 pieces from her, in a very short span of time... XD It is a very good thing I have a job again. So first off,
The Bubbi Necklace
Isn't it so pretty? I love the deep blue and purple together. 2 of my favorite colors. Plus the heart link chain is also very cute and unique.
Purple Haze heart earrings
Purple happens to be my favorite color. And anything sparkly is a good thing. =)
Purple Haze/Golden Shadow Pegasus
So, when I saw the picture of this on Steph's blog, I thought the heart looked a bit more pink. And being new to the site, I didn't put two and two together to realize that PH stood for purple haze. XD The actual stock color is called Light Vitrail. It's purple, but occasionally, it has a green-ish tinge to it. I would love to get a single siam red heart to interchange with this necklace, but that will have to wait. I love the shapes of this necklace and get compliments on it often.
I could not help myself. It's a huge heart crystal...and the sparkle on this baby is amazing. I thought I would want to wear this on a longer chain, but I really like how it looks on the 18" heart chain. I love walking outside with this thing because it sparkles like no other. :) I did notice though, if you want the blue color to come out more, you need to have it behind a white color. With skin tones, the yellow is more prominent.
Key to Wonderland
Steph always makes beautiful bracelets. And they're one of a kind to add to the value. She posted at one point that she wanted to make an Alice in Wonderland themed one, and I knew that I wanted to get that one. Alice has always been one of my favorite Disney movies, and I like the book a lot. When she posted the bracelet, I didn't think I would have the money to buy it quick enough, but no one snagged it up. So finally, after saving for a bit, I bought the bracelet. The only problem I have with it, is that the clasp is super small. I always have to ask for help to put it on. But the charms are beautiful, and the colors are pretty neutral so it goes with a lot of things. And of course, it sparkles. Definitely a wonderful piece that I was able to pick up.
Big Daddy Peridot Stars
I've always been a fan of stars. I used to want to be an astronomer when I was younger, and I have star motifs all over the place. I decided on the bigger studs and in green, since I do not have much green jewelry.
Black Diamond Crystal Balls
I am always attracted to silvery-gunmetal type tones. So when I saw the crystal balls in black diamond I definitely hoped they would stay in stock. Thankfully no one had picked them up before me and I was able to snag them. I get many compliments that they're super sparkly and eye catching.
Steph continues to make amazing work, and is currently working on making an official store page and even a store front! wow what an amazing person. To do something that you love and be super successful at it in less than a year is amazing. I'm hoping that the offical web page won't take away from the personal side of it. But I know it will make it much easier for Steph to continue doing so much for her fans. :) I wish her the best of luck, and I hope you guys find happiness in her jewelry too!
