3 local and incredibly unique jewellers specialising in handmade creations
The majority of the jewellery sold by WeCameFromSaturn are necklaces and earrings. WeCameFromSaturn’s inspirations are punk, alternative and streetwear jewellery that is wearable and timeless.
WeCameFromSaturn advocates for equality, so I want build a brand that can appeal to a wide range of people and is approachable to all. I strive to deliver something for everyone, no matter who they are or how they are portrayed, since jewellery has no gender.
After a year of operations, WeCameFromSaturn has created many collections with different themes and aesthetics. When asked what inspired them to develop the concept for the jewellery, the lead jeweller said:
“Anything I came upon on the internet. I’d want to try out a new theme and concept that was appropriate for the current season and trends. So, every month, I’d come up with a new theme and aesthetic to go along with the new collections, while yet being true to the brand’s image and values.
WeCameFromSaturn also takes custom requests from their customers, which includes making body chains, shoe chains, phone chains, and many more. You can find their store on Instagram or make your immediate purchase in via Shopee.
Based in Kota Kinabalu, Mannajkk has been operating its business for over 10 years. The mother and daughter duo specializes in handcrafting jewellery using a wire-wrapping technique. They also use a variety of materials for their products, such as copper, alloy, colorful gemstones, pearls, shells, glass, cords, etc.
Most of our accessories are inspired by nature. Flowers, leaves, tendrils, the moon, even animals like cats & birds. We occasionally concentrate on creating minimalist jewellery because many people choose to wear this design, such as basic chain type bracelets or simple rings for everyday wear.
Creating jewelry is Mannajkk’s passion, and they want to provide their clients with uniquely-designed gemstone jewelry at accessible prices. You can check out their other collections on their Instagram page.
Hon3yBlood started their handmade jewellery as a hobby, a form of meditation, and to generate a side income. However, it evolved into a business when it became their primary source of revenue. When asked how they get their inspiration for every collection, the team lead said:
My passion for alternative/goth apparel and music served as inspiration. The majority of my collection is based on music that I enjoy, and I develop ideas from there.
They recently created a Shopee store to make it more convenient for both themselves and their customers to shop – so make your purchase now at Shopee or check out more of their jewellery on Instagram.
