Designer: Genevieve Tan, 31, started her label in 2015 with totes before switching her focus to jewellery six months later. It’s a one-woman operation – Tan conceptualises and handmakes all the pieces.
Signatures: Versatile, industrial-meetsfeminine jewellery that’s always light (less than 100g), comfortable, and wearable in multiple ways. Tan uses a double clasp system or functional cord stoppers on selected necklace designs. The former lets you easily change chains (sold individually at www.yard-yarn.com), while the latter allows the necklace to be worn in various ways (see Tan demonstrate the versatility of her designs in our digital edition). Materials used: faux suede cords, lightweight beads and hardware, and dressmaking elements like grommets and cord stoppers. Latest collection: Inspired by blooms.
Prices: Earrings, $18-$38; necklaces, $38-$58.
