Singaporean self-taught jewellery maker Trixie Khong of online jewelry boutique By Invite Only recently launched a line of jade necklaces and bracelets featuring filigree lockets that contain citronella-filled beads that have mosquito-repelling properties. 

The inspiration behind the designs stem from the fact that people typically don’t have the habit of taking insect repelling out with them – hence the idea to fuse fashion and the concept of safety with Jade, a classic Chinese symbol of protection against evil and bad luck, as the core element of the collection. 

The four designs in the collection cost between $48 to $65, while the individual citronella beads cost $4.90 each.  

The citronella in the beads masks carbon dioxide and lactic acid in humans, two scents that are attractive to mosquitoes. 

The beads can keep mosquitoes away for up to seven days.
