love seed

 

Like almost all things, it started with seed. For this collection, it is a saga seed.
To Singaporeans, the saga seed is a symbol of love with its unique, heart-like shape and chilli-red colour. We would remember giving or receiving a glass jar filled to the brim with these bright red seeds as a token of love or friendship. Not too long ago, we tried to find them again and realised that these seeds are becoming harder to find. To preserve this beautiful local symbol and story, we decided to dedicate a collection to it...
Love Seed is a re-creation of this nostalgic Singaporean symbol in precious metals. To distinguish its smooth, unique shape, we contrasted it with slender, twig-like forms with hand-hammered textures. The result: a series that is abstract yet organic, modern yet nostalgic.
