Grow your own alternative home decor

_MG_6674Recently I have been looking at crystals intently, mostly for the home. I started getting crystals bracelets after learning their aid in spiritual growth. I am intrigued and wanted to find out more though I haven’t been taking good care of my existing wearable crystals. Certain crystals need more attention than others. Of late I read that clear quartz is considered neutral and do not pick up any negative force around them so you need not rinse with running mineral water or let it out in soft sunlight. And Quartz with different formations have different purposes for the owner. I do believe the utmost important thing is to look after them well and they will do the same for you.
Today, I am sharing with you Tyler Thrasher’s works. Thanks to my dear friend, a crystal enthusiast who sent me his website few days ago. And I thought it was mind blowing. Never did it occur to me that you can grow crystals at home, definitely not before our recent crystal shopping trip together! Growing natural minerals, how cool is that. Then it got me thinking, would the crystals harvester’s aura be collected and bind to these “lab-grown” crystals. Some of these works are available for purchase. Click here for more information.

Handcrafted Jewellery // By Invite Only

local creatives
When I learned that By Invite Only has shifted its studio, I decided to pay Trixie a visit and catch up where we left off few years ago. By Invite Only is a Singapore-based label founded by Trixie Khong, a self-taught jewellery artisan. Her creations of beautiful trinkets, with minerals and crystals sourced from all over the world, are pieced together by hand. These exquisite accessories stands out from what is commonly found in mainstream shops. I, myself is very fond of the Gold Fiona necklace. Click here to see more. By Invite Only will be conducting Jewellery Handcrafting workshop at Rockstar Singapore on August 9th (Sat), but all sessions are fully booked. The Mini Loft will be keeping in touch and provide updates on future sessions (if any). Stay tuned!
