Announcement   For the majority of August, the shop was closed. I originally closed the shop for catching up on orders, but I also had to have an emergency medical procedure on my hand (now all healed up!) so there has been a catching-up delay from that as well. I'm reopened now but I will have very limited stock as I have also just moved.

☆ If you received an item, can you please leave a review for public display? Here is a little instruction about how to add a review : www.etsy.com/help/article/102 ^_^

Thank you!

Sorry for my shop being closed T_T finally had to go to the hospital and get my finger checked out. Hopefully the shop will be open in September. Thank you!
At long last, I have created Sailor Galaxia's gorgeous ruby brooch and done it justice! This item was requested several times by many of you and hoping you will love the long-awaited treasure. Just look at thoss Swarovski crystals shine!
Recently I teamed up with Simply Guilded to create a planner charm for her washi release! I opened up pre-orders for them here as the capsule sale on Simply Gilded sold out much faster than we thought astonished Thank you and check out the Planner Charm Section!

About

Starlight Deco Dream : Transform Your World and Stay Magical!

When I originally wanted to create my own jewelry designs, I thought of a cute idea for items inspired by and based on classic magical girl series of the 80s and 90s I grew up with. I call these designs and style "Mahou Kei" (literally Magic Style in Japanese.) Remembering my childhood, I create accessories which look sugary sweet, cute, fun, bright and happy! They all resemble a sweet and dreamy memory from the past or mystical, sparkling treasures.

As silly as it seemed, when I was feeling in the middle of a creative block, I wished I would have a successful online shop and it came true! I wished it on the night I saw a shooting star, which was also the day I coined the name “Starlight Deco Dream” At first, the idea of having a store to me was scary, because I always made items for myself yet didn’t have anyone to critique it. Having to open my world up to others was a little hard at first, but I realised after going to a convention and selling my wares there, I could have a great face to face experience. Basically, everyone was very encouraging and to see how my items made so many people happy made my heart swell with joy. For me, my art is my life and therapy, so I am happy when I make things which will make others happy. For me, I want my craft to be my 'magical girl' power. I want it to reflect my spirit and brighten others.

What does it take to be a magical girl?
To be a magical girl, it takes courage.
It takes the power to overcome your fears.
It takes humility, dedication, and your heart.
It takes an entire team of friends.
Whether or not they are fighting alongside you,
they are giving you their hearts and support.
Anyone who has overcome pain and suffering
and emerged triumphant is a magical girl.
Anyone who stands up in the face of oppression is a magical girl.
If you ever did something in the name of good,
you’re a magical girl.
If you ever set goals to reach your dreams and pursued them,
you’re a magical girl.
If you’ve ever said ‘no’ to evil and stood up for a friend,
you’re a magical girl.
You are a super hero. You are strong!
Make your voice heard and fight evil! Be magical girls!
In the end, you are all legends of your own kind.
Magical Girls. We are ALL Magical Girls.

If you want to do crafts, do what you’re comfortable with and what makes you happy. The biggest mistake one can make is to do something which they don’t love and enjoy, because it’s impossible to dedicate yourself and have drive for it. At the beginning of the day, I’m thinking about what I can create until I can’t keep my eyes open and in my dreams, I think about the next creations I will make. In life you should do what makes you happy, but also discipline yourself to find ways to perfect your craft. Whether you make friends or do it in solitary, always keep your head up and enjoy! Remember, Stay Magical! ☆*:.。. \(@ ̄∇ ̄@)/ . 。 . ☆

Frequently asked questions

Do you ever close the shop at any time?

Back in 2013 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. In short, I'm frequently in a great amount of pain and it makes it quite difficult for me to work as consistently on my shop. I'm doing a LOT better than when I was first diagnosed and always working my hardest to stay actively creating. While my shop gives me great joy, my health is important too, so I apologize if there are gaps between my shipping schedule or the time the shop is open so I may rest. I will always note when the shop will close and send out current orders before doing so. I thank you all for being patient at that time :-) Thanks for listening!
