How We Started
Our story is such an amazing one that began as an adventure in 2016. We were three friends who believed in and loved the sincerity attached to personalized handmade gifts, and then we thought it would be a good idea to come together and create a DIY community.
However, long before the adventure began, the inspiration came when one of our founders, Terence needed to get something special to celebrate his father’s birthday, and when his dad picked a design, Terence went to work and was able to creatively come up with a model ship made out of paper, and his father loved it dearly. That activity set the thought process rolling for Terence, and he thought about the fact that there could be people out there who would also love to create amazing gifts from scratch, and as we all know, the rest is history.
“As interesting as the story sounds, it may interest you to know that there have been really humble beginnings for the trio- Terence, Cavin, and Jiada, as they featured at the Sentosa Boardwalk, where they made their first appearance as Blue Stone. Interestingly, they began with a small collection of handmade gifts, as well as being optimistic that they were up to the task. They did not allow anything to deter them, not even the heavy rain that poured for two days.”
The very first item that they sold was the miniature dome they called ‘Romantic Paris’.
A year after our stepping into the industry, we had gotten better and had much more unique collectibles and gifts needed for others to begin their DIY projects. We have been able to have our collections showcased at different events like the Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay, Singapore Garden Fest, Marina Bay, and I-Light among others.
Inspirations Along The Way
In our climb up the ladder of success, we have met different creative and inspirational people who are as keen as we are at creating miniature items from scratch. It is quite interesting that we were able to draw inspiration and creativity from 9-year olds to a 90 –year old who was kind enough to share her love for her dear friend via a handmade gift she created. A 60-year old woman is not left out of the important people that inspired, as she was created a DIY gift that was sent to her daughter that lived in another part of the world.
Each of the handmade gifts and crafts is created with commitment, dedication, and patience. We are meticulous about what we do and are always paying attention to detail, while we encourage people to embrace the sincerity of self-made crafts and gifts.
