Triad II: Reluxe

Paul Syjuco, Kristine Dee and Michelline Syjuco will unveil their latest jewelry collections at 6pm tonight, October 22 at Firma in Greenbelt 3, Makati.

The trio's second show entitled “TRIAD II: RELUXE”, is based on Renewable Luxury (hence the term RELUXE), where they recycled precious materials, giving a second, or even a third or fourth life, to existing jewelry and jewelry scraps.

In my interview with them for The Radar (watch out for it in your Sunday Philippine Star!), Paul explains why they went towards this direction for their latest exhibition, "When you're in jewelry, you're basically a direct driver of mining. Of gems and precious metals; be it large or small scale. It's a little bit disconcerting that you contribute to the damage. And this is to show that through whatever it is that you do, there are responsible choices that you can make to contribute for the common good."

Intriguing right? For a sneak peek of what's in store, scroll down:

Michelline, who created jewelry out of tin cans in her early design years has graduated to grown up, glamorous pieces which are partly fashioned from discarded bullet shells.

Kristine's multi-functional designs (for instance, her earrings convert to pendants, or can be worn as studs), are not just pieces to sell, but something with  more than just one purpose, has meaning and a compelling story behind it.

Paul believes that old doesn't have to mean shabby, and for that reason, recycled gold and stones can and should be be given a luxurious lease in life.

All three collections from Triad II: Reluxe may be viewed at Firma Greenbelt 3 after tonight's launch.
