HI! I'm Sha.
Welcome to my beaded dreamscape universe, Kalbu!
Kalbu is a very tiny one-woman business run (with lots of love) by me. ♡
I'm based in Malaysia. I started my shop end of Jan 2021 when I turned 24. This was a gift to myself to do what I've always wanted to do - which is to create. The word 'Kalbu' in Malay means 'heart; centre of feelings' - which encapsulates what I put into my work.
My background is in interior architecture but I started experimenting with making beaded wearables in my last year of university - it's stuck around ever since. All my designs shown on my website are original and handmade by me. There is no 'automated' process for my beadwork. Every design is handwoven, bead by bead, to make an entire finished piece. A lot of time and care is put into Kalbu and the work you see here on my website.
If you'd like to see the personal side of the processes that go into my work, I'm on IG @k.a.l.b.u ❤️️
There's nothing I'd love more than to share my beading passion with you, wherever you are in the world, through the things I create - so thank you for being here.
Love you lots 🌙🌷🦋
