“And if someone were to show me jewelry as unique, I would grab it. So here I am at The Sandalwood Room to check out if I can get a preview of the Jonaki line of jewelry.
I have this thing about hand-crafted stuff for me and my home. It makes me feel special, it makes me feel I AM UNIQUE!
The Sandalwood Room’s Jonaki show is just in time. Diwali is round the corner, parties galore and I want jewelry that is fresh and original, to go with my ‘some-completely-Indian-ethnic- outfits’ and ‘some-indo-western’.
I had jewelry on my mind when I stepped in, but a browse around The Sandalwood Room, the Great Diwali Sale had multiplied my shopping bags. Stuffed with irresistible beauties for me and my family. Feeling sort of guilty for having over-indulged, my thoughts at the billing counter were to eject some items from the heap that lay between me and the desktop. But lo and behold ! I didn’t have to – I had earned some money! I was now entitled to the Diwali vouchers that saved me a cool $100!
I walked out with a spring in my step and made a mental note of spreading the word around to my friends. It’s a big high when you got a deal or a bargain that none of your friends have gotten yet.”
We were thrilled to hear this from a customer all beaming as she walked out of The Sandalwood Room , her hands shifting shopping bags from one to the other. Our Diwali vouchers are aplenty, earn as you shop – $5, $10, $15, $20, $50, $100
Coming back to the Jonaki jewelry, which is
not a part of the Diwali sale. It is an exclusive pop up show hosted by The Sandalwood Room for their discerning customers. Singapore, make a note of the date:
- 31st October, 2015
- 11 am and 8 pm
A fine coming together of two enterprises that are passionate about handicrafts and the handcrafted – The Sandalwood Room and Nine By Thirty. Aparna Das Sadhukan, the jeweler behind Nine By Thirty likens hand-crafted jewelry to freshly baked bread. A subtle analogy that says a lot.
Every item of Nine By Thirty jewelry has been inspired by a story of people around the jeweler, making every piece only one of its kind, never to be replicated. Nothing at NBT is sourced out, each stunning piece of jewelry is a product of the jeweller’s creativity born out of dreaming ideas. In the artist’s own words, ” Hand-making anything is fun, there is a certain thrill I feel each time I hand-make something ”
And so the magic of her imagination gets translated into such fine and never-to-be-found-anywhere-else jewelry.
Hand-strung green Malachite and grey Labradorite, both polished on one side and left raw on the other, with sterling silver goddess pendants a la temple jewelry style.
Gold foil covered Dholki wax beads paired with stone studded silver pendant.
Soothing Aquamarine, unpolished on one side and smooth on the other, hand-strung with turquoise studded Afghani silver pendant.
Volcanic lava and coral beads interestingly strung with vintage silver coins and Rajasthani coloured-glass studded silver pendant.
