There is a subtle feeling — a whisper of a thrill — when you chance upon a brand that marries beautiful products with know-how and tradition. Such was the case when I chanced upon Stale & Co., a Singaporean label that specializes in handcrafted accessories that incorporate traditional metalsmith techniques.
The brand’s brass accessories, just like the Kenny Cuff Bracelet above, take on a whole new look as the wearer uses them over time, achieving a unique patina akin to a quality leather bag or raw denim jeans. This natural personalization process adds to the charm, ensuring that each item becomes an extension of yourself. In addition to brass, Stale & Co. also works with hardware, such as silver, and softer materials like yarn and glass beads, resulting in a balance that complements and harmonizes.
With a roster of fine bracelets, cuffs, necklaces and rings, Stale & Co. also regularly adds on to its existing collection in order to provide choices that will complement a variety of personal styles. One of the newest additions is the Kurt Cuff Bracelet (pictured above), which boasts a solid feel and hammered asymmetrical ends. It’s a statement making piece that’ll finish off a simple outfit perfectly.
