Kasut manek in the making

My kasut manek collection

My favourite kasut manek

No comments:



After relocating back to Singapore, I have been immersing myself in the rich peranakan culture particularly, the intensive process of sewing my own kasut manek, taking three months to sew each pair of kasut manek. I always enjoy my visits to my favourite shoemaker, who would skillfully transform each of my hand-sewn shoe-covers into magnificent pieces of artwork...

Lady Sophia Necklace

No comments:





I have always been fascinated with pearls. They exude an understated elegance - one that is not as attention grabbing as a gold necklace but enough to cast an aura of sophistication on the wearer.

An elegant pearl necklace handsewn with oval and round luminous freshwater pearls of assorted sizes, finished with a satin loop clasp.

Price: USD$85.00

Lady Taylor Necklace

No comments:




A simple bow necklace handsewn with luminous freshwater pearl and mint green glass beads, and finished with a clear teardrop swarovski crytsal.

When I came up with this design, I dreamed of an elegant and sophisticated lady dressed in an empire gown. She is Lady Taylor.

Lady Taylor has a distinct taste for simple but elegant jewelry. Although sophisticated and tough on the exterior, she likes to showcase her softer side through her jewelry.

Measures approximately 35 cm (14 inches) in length.

Price: USD$25

Lady Aresa Necklace

No comments:







Lady Aresa looked out of her window, into her garden below. The flowers are in full bloom. "Spring is finally here!" she exclaimed excitedly. The flowers were a new specimen invented by the local gardeners, and they had named it her in honour. Lady Aresa bulbs, they are called.

All through the bitterly cold winter, Lady Aresa had spent her days sewing tiny glass beads and pearls together to make a beaded version of the Lady Aresa bulbs.

28 fully in bloom beaded flowers and 22 bulbs were sewed together to form a netted necklace, with a vine-like chain and knot fastening. To complement the mint green flowers and baby blue bulbs, Lady Aresa had specially added a periwinkle blue teardrop swarovski crystal at the tip of the netted design.

Lady Aresa put on her necklace happily. It matched very well with her lace dress. Satisfied, she left for her very 1st spring tea party of the year.
