Royal Selangor is a Malaysian based company which
has gone international (seen an outlet in Chadstone in Melbourne,
Australia) that manufactures pewter based products. It used to produce
classic designs (think pewter) but has recently branched out into more contemporary showpieces and personal accessories.
The Royal Selangor Spring 2006 Collection has several new pewter lineups for this season – Mojo, Plus, Palladio, Plasma and The Ark. Mojo
is a lucky charms based lineup for this new season and I saw a range of
wearable charms on display at the Royal Selangor booth in the airport
Mojo by Royal Selangor reintroduces charms as
pewter designs on chokers for RM 110 each, and one particular charm
caught my eye and I stopped to read the Mojo advertising spiel. It
seems that Royal Selangor is breaking away from their traditional
target market and moving into pewter items for today’s generation.
I got the Flame Charm from the Mojo series. The Royal Selangor Spring 2006 Collection is all about different themes – The Ark is a series of nicely crafted pewter items such as picture frames, piggybanks and pen holders. Mojo is a whimsical personal accessories charms lineup and the others in the seasons collection each has its own cohesive theme.
This is what the Flame Charm in the Mojo
series looks like up close. I bought it coz the design looks great. I
was just browsing around since my Kuching – Sibu flight was delayed
from 8:30 pm to 9:25 pm (again…) and decided to get it on an impulse
purchase. The Mojo range comes in a Royal Selangor display box and
includes a choker strap and a protective cloth pouch in addition to the
pewter charm itself.
I like the charm – it should protect me from being engulfed in
flames should I nod off on a high opiate dose someday and drop my lit
cigarette on the bed. ;)
Flame On !
