Machinist based out of Singapore.
Ben Tan has a degree major in finance, but his true passion is shown through the beads, and everyday carry items he crafts by hand.
He learned on handed down milling machines from his father, and got the basics through a hands on approach. "It's pretty much the same as asking a mother how you cook your favorite dish. All she'll say is add a bit of this, a dash of that and it'll be alright. But you know it's much more than that." It takes talent.
Eclipsesharp has been turning out hand made beads and charms since 2012 and is expanding more each year. You can see his works here:
