Just sharing some photos from the preview of dipped.two. For those of you who don’t know, I have a small jewelry line called dipped which is a collaboration between my friend and own of design label thirtyfour. You can read about it here (dipped). You can also check the various updates I’ve done in relation to dipped by clicking on my tab bar on the side or here.
We had a preview last Thursday, 23rd of June 2011 and all I can say is BLESSED! So many friends of ours to preview the collection. It was quite a special moment for us.
dipped.two is a small line (18 in total) of one-off pieces that featured fancy cut stones set in silver and dipped in 18k gold (rose and yellow gold). It took us about four months or so to develop and produce the line in between our day jobs. We had no set rules for this designing dipped, it was all about what we wanted to do and what we wanted to “play” with. Surprisingly, many of our friends related to our designs and we even had some customers from dipped one returning to view. We were pleased to see a young crowd at the event too which was what we hope to achive - making fine jewelry slightly more accessible to the young ladies who aspire to own something special. Like I said, I feel Blessed.
Here are some picture of the event posted on the thirtyfour facebook page.
Below are some blackberry behind the scenes pics I took as we went through the dipped.two journey right up to event day.

(ABOVE) Half way mark to preview date: Discussion day with our goldsmith on settings and chains. Above is Shuenn Kee’s ‘Grace’. Measurements and placing.
(ABOVE) A week before the event our pieces came back to us : We were quite into ombre-ing everything. LOL. The gradient is so pretty and totally something that we thought our customers would appreciate.
Above: ‘Delight’ and ‘Trust’
I loved my ‘eternal’ with her dancing stones. I wore all of them before I parted with them. LOL
(ABOVE): Shuenn Kee looks so cute with her mini mouse gloves placing ‘eternal’ on the mirror for her photo session.
This never made it to the booklet as the shot wasn’t really working for us. (That’s my hand in the mirror :))
test shot for eternal.
That’s Jeff, our visualist, swirling around the necklace before shooting.

She made it to the wall. :)
Preview day: Jeff gets some shots in before the guest arrives
Shuenn Kee and I briefed the girls before the preview. Every box was customized to fit each piece.

I’m with the beautiful Miss Thanuja. You can see that chronic blackberry person at work.
Deborah shows me how she would wear the ‘Trust’ necklace. She’s also got the ‘catalyst’ (knuckles duster) on Love
Sasi & Malini. Malini is wearing ‘Faith’.
Last moments with ‘Eternal’ before she was sold.
