Glasil is a relatively new store managed by a lady who makes the items herself. I had the honour of watching her in action whilst I was in the store.
The display of the store is amazing. She has bracelets and earrings all over. But most of the items are quite simple and not very complicated. The materials are less common but not the design itself. The finished products are priced about $5 to $100 for those with precious stones.
The materials she sells for DIY are in small quantities and there isn't much variety. She has mainly glass and czech crystal stuff so they are all quite pricey. Even plastic items are not cheap either. It's for the casual maker making for herself really. As for findings and wires there's also very little to choose from.
At the back of the store she sells some bags which are quite interesting. The material may not be good but they are quite cheap.
The owner herself is quite knowledgeable about the materials she sells but her staff isn't. They had to consult her many times on what the material is and where are certain items placed.
I used to think that along East Coast Road near Katong Mall has only restaurants or some other shops that people won't go to unless they have a reason. While waiting for a friend, I was just walking around and saw this shop.
It's a little shop that displays many little accessories such as bracelets, necklaces and earrings. The materials they use consist of sterling silver, semi-precious stones, crystal beads as well as fused art glass (or something like that).
There's a wide variety of choice, with almost every item coming in different colours. Take your time walking, I'm sure anyone would definitely find something to your liking. Furthermore, the things there are of reasonable price! That's what I was quite surprised but really glad about. I would have thought that they'd sell those dangling earrings at an exorbitant price of average $20, but it was around $15. If you look at their designs, it's actually quite a reasonable price.
It's a great place to go gift-shopping for your girlfriends too!
Also, if you're interested in learning how to do your own jewellery or making fused art glass, they actually have lessons conducted there too! Materials all provided. Or if you're looking for materials to make your own accessories, they have it there too!
Go take a look if you like these stuff! :)
