Carrie K.'s New Capsule Collection Gives Grandma's Jewellery A Whimsical Edge

July 31, 2012

The new Capsule Mint Collection celebrates incongruity, pairing classic styles with mischievous new looks.

Singapore, July 31, 2012 - Carrie K. Artisan jewellery’s new capsule Mint Collection gives a fresh take on grandma’s jewellery and injects an unexpected dose of playfulness and whimsy into staid gems and precious pearls. Designed to give women an escape from cookie cutter classics with purposely-incongruous combinations of traditional styles and mischievous charms, this collection aims to provoke people to rethink the rules of style or, better yet, throw out the rulebook and let one’s imagination take flight.

The limited production pieces are handcrafted by Carolyn Kan, founder and designer of Carrie K. Made with precious baroque pearls, semi-precious stones, sterling silver charms and sterling silver chains or plated 14K rose gold for added whimsical preciousness, the collection will comprise earrings, lariats, necklaces and bracelets. The capsule collection will debut at Carrie K.’s Keepers IV on August 25th 2012. Selected pieces will be available in November when Carrie K. launches at TANGS Orchard, Singapore.

The Capsule Mint Collection

The capsule collection ransacks grandma’s jewellery box, and reinterprets classics such as pearls and garnets by injecting eccentricity and quirkiness into traditional charm jewellery.

Clusters of cutlery are combined with delicate pearls and rocker chic sterling silver chains to create a bracelet for the “foodie” or combined with a Flying Pig charm for those with their heads in the sky. To tempt the inner rebel in all of us, lariats with a sterling silver skull charm mingles with a single elegant baroque pearl to soften the edginess of skull charm and retain an air of sophistication.

The versatile necklaces are designed to be worn in different ways. One may show the sophisticated side by day and reverse it at night when the inner child comes out to play.

Those looking to wear their heart, or rather, their quirkiness on their sleeves, can have pieces custom-designed to reflect their personality. Carolyn hopes to give wearers an outlet for their creativity and imagination with precious artisan crafted pieces that defy the rules of classic jewellery.

“Real life is terribly serious, and play is a necessity to life.” Says Carolyn “This collection is my way of poking fun at life & society’s expectations”
