A statement ring

100 carats of organic amethyst, pink tourmaline and green beryl cabochons and over 30 grams of 18KT rose gold vermeil. This pretty much encapsulates the label's design philosophy of asymmetry and organic, textured metals and flawed, included gemstones.
Definitely not part of my ready-to-wear collection but I'll probably be doing a line of statement rings sometime in the future - all one-of-a-kind.

Wiggle Room

One of the reasons why I love working with bespoke orders so much is that each piece is really fitted to size. This doesn't really matter if the required piece is a pair of earrings or a necklace but it really does make a difference when it comes to rings and bangles. As such, one of the challenges when I'm designing my ready-to-wear collection is to factor this issue in.




In a twist to the wavy, asymmetrical stackable rings and the organic twig bangles (above), I've made the bands in such a way that they're free size of sorts, such that they'll fit almost all sizes. For those who want to purchase them, drop me an e-mail. They'll be in stores in Singapore come late August 2009.

weddings

I've been doing some wedding jewellery as of late - classic 18KT white and rose gold with white diamonds that isn't quite in the label's theme of asymmetry and organic aesthetic. The one nice thing about doing the really classic pieces like these though is that I get to use a lot of dainty milgrain bordering that I have never used in my chunky silver pieces. They communicate a feminity and an antique aesthetic that I find myself really gravitating to.
