I can’t believe we’re a week away from it being February already. Where are the days going?!?
Very exciting time for us though as we unveil our latest range of Dinner Plates exclusively within Urban Kandy.
What’s so special about them?
Each piece are individually hand painted by our very talented local artist Janet Lin. More about Janet Here.
We were very excited to “break” them in (for display purposed only) during our formal Christmas dinner party.
At the moment, we have 20pieces of 3 designs. This are our Palm Tree motif plates.
…our Fern Leaf motif
…and our Flower Bud motif.
I’m not one who likes to buy jewellery, in fact almost every jewellery I own was given to me so there’s something special to be said for each of them. But if I was to define my kind jewellery, Alexis Russell would be it.
My grandfather was a gold smith, he made some very beautiful pieces for his 7 daughters (Yes you heard me right… SEVEN, would like to add he had 7 sons too!). Rough cut hand made pieces are my personal favourites with minimal dramatic effects or complicated twists and turns.
If you’re unaware, we’re down to our last four pieces of handmade Indian Marble Vases in our online store.
We’ve been looking high and low for these sought after lamps, each piece is hand painted on gorgeously carved marble. Not an easy process which require fine craftsmanship taught from generations of skilled craftsman in Rajasthan.
Because each piece is hand made that means not each piece are exactly identical.
We are left with four pieces in store two in medium and two small. They make gorgeous conversational pieces to your home or as a special gift.

This is one for all you creative people out there in Singapore.
I chanced upon this website and it was my morning dose of inspiration to set me out to make the best of the rest of the day.
Having lived in many vibrant – buzzing cities where everything bought is mainly imported and mass produced, it is nice to see that people still embracing the traditional methods of making a living and that is by CREATION!
“When my project began, I knew I was photographing people who make things, but I soon realized I was also photographing people who make things happen. As the project evolves, so does the adventure and pleasure of documenting the people behind the products: to learn what inspires them, what keeps them going, and their thoughts on the city where they live and work. I hope you enjoy it!”
