Specimen 012 – COUNTERPOINT – a two-pronged crescendo of stained beads and polished half-globes culminating in an exposition of free-sided tetragonal pendants.


No two Specimen will ever be the same.

Subida’s locally crafted necklaces are whimsical and contemporary, handstrung in adjustable wax cords whose sliding knots can fit all head sizes. Being individually handmade, they’re not always wholly free of scratches, notches or rough edges. However, we tend to think of these as contributing to, rather than taking away from, each piece’s innate character.

Our designs are at once rustic and bold, with each one a work of art. Again, no two are identical, or ever will be. Specimens can present any number of forms, rendered in a wide variety of materials. They might make use of wood, stone, metal, bamboo, resin or unique beads. On occasion, more distinctive components like shell, marble, bone or carabao horn may join the array.

These necklaces, brought together by our artists’ creative spirit, is offered at a very affordable price. Which gives one all the more reason to purchase a specimen. Or perhaps even start building a collection of one’s very own.
