What did you have to fight against to become a GAME CHANGER?
Learning how to make jewelry without having any prior background. It makes it even tougher when you don’t have someone whom you can consult or learn from, especially when it comes to teeth jewelry. We invested a lot of time and money on experimenting with it ourselves, without knowing if we would succeed in our techniques.
What is your defining moment as a GAME CHANGER?
When my partner and I started doing jewelry differently, we do jewelry for teeth, and we make customized metal jewelry as well, which is something you won't commonly find in Singapore.
What will be your advice to others?
There’s no shame in failing. It only makes you better the next time you try.
