LOOKING INTO THE DRAWERS OF MY PAST
Growing up in a family of fine jewellery producers allowed me to develop a cultural background of memories tied to wonderful objects, full of charm and preciousness. When, a few years ago, I began to look through my parents’ drawers, I discovered many objects that not only were carefully preserved but still evoked memories of my past. I then decided to select a few of them and re-use them for a new jewelry collection that, despite being inspired by my life story, was designed with a modern twist.
Small silver boxes, gifts of forgotten newlyweds, jewellery of long lost fashions but nonetheless majestic, and a lot of colourful semi-precious stones collected throughout various journeys in faraway lands, have become, thanks to the skilled hands of two goldsmiths in Nairobi, ornaments that represent the passing of life.
