I was invited to Dipped Row’s tea party and trunk show at The Cigar Room in Kenny Hills last week with my sister, Wani. To be honest, I have never heard of the brand before so I was pretty excited to check them out and feast my eyes (and hands) on the newly discovered jewellery brand over delectable desserts.
Dipped Row was founded by three childhood friends, Karina, Azura and Lina, who are self-confessed jewellery addicts. Every piece in the collection is personally curated to showcase a glimmer of their different personalities and style.
As I arrived at the door, rows of sparkly colorful necklaces caught my eyes from across the room so I went straight to the table where they showcased the collection and just stared admiringly at them. I went like, “Oh my, that is nice. Oooh, this one too. And this one. And that one!”. Every piece is drool-worthy!
Their Spring/Summer 2014 collection features distinctive yet versatile jeweleries; from simple dainty bracelets to head-turning statement necklaces that would surely complement and elevate any ensemble. Necklaces and earrings are embellished with crystal clusters, floral patterns and brightly colored resin stones, while the bracelets are swathed in exotic stingray, phyton and ostrich leather.
Of course there were yummy desserts (and other food). Man, I was so busy checking out the jeweleries that I forgot how hungry I was until I saw these.
My sister and I had been whatsapp-ing each other a few days before the event, telling how we were craving for yummy vanilla cupcakes, so you can imagine how beyond happy we were when we saw those pink cupcakes. They were so good!
I must say, the highlight of the event is the jewellery customization. Guests were given the opportunity to choose any piece of Dipped Row necklace that was laid on the table (there were a few different designs to choose from) and give it a little makeover by painting it with nail polish! How brilliant is that? I have never thought of doing that before.
The 2 most beautiful designs would win some goodies from Dipped Row so everyone started to work on their designs right away. Some even sketched a few design options on paper first with swatches of colors!
I don’t have a lot of blue and purple necklaces so I decided to paint it in those 2 colors. I should have just left it like this laa – just bits of purple and blue. Looked simple and nice, me think. But it was a lot of fun painting those crystals that I got carried away. I even wanted to paint the chains after finishing with the crystals, but thought that might be a bit too much.
The end result. Wasn’t sure if it was a good idea to add pink, but whatevs. It was fun playing jewellery designer! We even get to keep the necklace so yay (I’m so gonna padam the colors and paint a new one soon).
So guess who won this necklace-painting competition?
I have to admit, their necklaces looked impressive. The color combinations are beautiful and they didn’t even look like they were painted with nail polishes! (My sister’s necklace is the one of the right, by the way)
