How did ‘nobi’ come about?
Nobi is a brand I developed in 2017, born from my passion for creating handmade jewellery. I work with polymer clay and my brand style is contemporary and minimalist. I like geometric, clean lines and bold block colours.
Where do you take your inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from observing the urban context and from much historical jewellery. Each piece is unique, hand-shaped, handmade, baked and then refined. Metal components are also handcrafted using 100% recycled sterling silver or stainless steel. I aim to create unique objects of design, expressing style, valuing the preciousness of receiving and wearing a handmade creation. This is important to me in contrast of a culture where mass production of identical things is available.
Why is jewellery so important to you?
For me making jewellery is a practice of giving significance. A jewel is a feeling, an emotion, a memory and through the simplicity of my designs, the purpose of my work is to enhance the wearer’s own personality and uniqueness aiming to make them experience a sensation of identity empowerment.
