SEJARAH: Spring/Summer 2016

Our SS16 collection is almost here! SEJARAH, which means 'history' in Bahasa Melayu (or Malay), is a modern interpretation of a part of Malaysian history. Each piece is named for an element relating to Malaysian culture and history, from MERDEKA (literally, 'independent') to JUARA (champion). 

JUARA earrings and necklace. These pieces feature laser cut brass elements and gold-filled chain and findings.

Malaysia, my country of origin, has a diverse and multicultural heritage. Although Malaysia is a young country (she became independent in 1957), the Malay Archipelago served as an important trading post for spices and silk for many centuries due to her strategic location in Southeast Asia. 

Today, people love visiting Malaysia for her sandy beaches, amazing food, jungle trekking, mountain climbing, rich history, cave exploring, superb shopping, and popping nightlife. But don't just take my word for it! :D 

(On a side note, how is it March already?!?)
