In 2002, The Nature Society Singapore conducted a poll to select Singapore's national bird, and the crimson sunbird emerged as the winner with the highest number of votes. Voters were drawn to the crimson sunbird due to its petite size and vibrant red plumage, which they considered as ideal representations of the country.
The etymology of the crimson sunbird's scientific name, siparaja, traces back to Sir Stamford Raffles, who derived it from the Malay name 'burung sepah raja'. In this context, 'burong' translates to 'bird', 'sepah' refers to the sweet juice of the betel nut, and 'raja' means 'king'.
The crimson sunbird is commonly sighted in various nature reserves across Singapore, including the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, and Bukit Batok Nature Park.
Our item is individually crafted by hand and we are committed to delivering the highest quality possible. But please be aware that slight variations in textures, grains, colors, shapes, and other minor imperfections may occur. These natural variations are an inherent part of the handmade process and should not be considered as defects.
RESIN: To clean, gently wipe the item with a soft, dry cloth. If necessary, use a damp cloth for deeper cleaning.
Store the item in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause a yellow hue to develop, especially on lighter colors.
Over time, the resin may appear to "dry" and fine lines may appear on the surface. If this happens, apply a small amount of oil (we recommend using baby oil) to the piece and gently wipe it with a soft cloth. This will rejuvenate the item's surface.
Remember to always handle the item with care and follow these instructions to maintain its beauty and longevity.
Wood: Avoid exposing the wood jewelry to excessive moisture. Remove it before swimming, bathing, or engaging in activities that may cause excessive sweating.
Clean the wood jewelry gently with a soft, dry cloth to remove any dust or dirt. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that may damage the coloured surface.
Store the wood jewelry in a cool, dry place, ideally in a jewelry box or pouch, to protect it from scratches or other damage. Keep it separate from other jewelry to prevent tangling or rubbing against harder materials.
Please exercise gentle handling when dealing with our fragile pieces. They are fragile and susceptible to damage, particularly if dropped from a height.
