Photo-Hunter: strings


I've been racking my brains on what to post in Photo-Hunter's "string" theme. I thought of string bikinins and stringed musical instruments but I don't have those in my photo archive. But in my overflowing kikay chest, I have unearthed these treasures. In the top photo are strings of fabric-covered balls that made up this rose de Pompadour-inspired multi-textured necklace. I wore it over a plain white cotton sleeveless top. Below is a delicate piece made from strings of natural green shells and beads---perfect for a hot Saturday night dress. These kikay accessories were created by Cebu designer Butch Carungay. Butch has opened a shop in the posh Greenbelt 5 called Atelier Avatar.

Kikay, by the way, is a Filipino slang for girly, sassy, spirited, chic.

I wouldn't even begin to have a string bikini photo in my archives either!! LOL [I'm too old and wrinkled to be seen in one] The last photo of the purples and the turquoise colored beads is just too beautiful for words!!

My strings are strung and strummed...stop by if you can find time. Happy Hunting!

A fine job of coming up with "strings." I'm no expert, but they look very good to me.
