About Us

A platform for like-minded individuals who love to create, handcraft, sew and upcycle. These individuals include special needs, low income, homemakers and hobbyists. Products are handmade with love and we are passionate about waste reduction and sustainability.

We work with and donate part of sales proceeds to our nominated charity each year.

The idea started when the founder received a few old chandeliers to raise funds for her charity's beneficiaries. She made several ornaments and jewellery pieces by adding new Swarovski crystals to the old, thus upcycling the chandelier parts into attractive products. With the support of friends and customers, we are constantly developing and expanding our catalogue of products.
