Clay jewellery designer Teoh Su Ling, 33, is a true-blue Penangite who’s proud of her home state, from the local hawker fare to its colonial buildings and sandy beaches. But it is Penang’s Peranakan heritage that genuinely resonates with her.

In particular, Teoh creates clay jewellery pieces – specifically earrings and pendants – with Peranakan tile motifs.
