■ Creation story □
Sandal wood has always been my favourite from the nature .
I like the peace and the soothing fragrance that the sandal wood brings.
Sandal wood is a type of fragrance wood. Instead of spraying the perfume, why not make use of the fragrance from the nature to become part of the wearable jewellery. Therefore I combined sandal wood with sterling silver and made a collection of this new design.
//Something to know about sandal wood 🙂 //
Absorbing the fragrance from sandal wood in time can help relax your mind. It soothes the emotions and stress.
□ Creation process ■
In making the jewellery with the sandal wood, I cut the wood into pieces with geometric shapes. Then I cut the silver plate, firing, soldering and then polishing.
Before I did several experiments to see how the wood can fit nicely with the silver. After deciding the shapes and the direction, I connected the wood and silver by riveting. NO GLUE is used at all in any place. So no need to worry if the wood would fall or the fragrance would be covered or destroyed.
For the wood, I specially put a layer of sandal wood extract oil to protect the wood surface.
Each work from the beginning til the end is completely handmade with time and techniques.
