The idea behind the jewellery is to allow people to wear and show their own modern icons, ranging from musical icons such as Bowie, artists such as Frida Kahlo, political figures, writers, actors, vintage images. Each piece is hand drawn with individual patterns, shapes and designs and finished with layers of lacquer.
I always liked the idea of people wearing religious icons around their neck, however I am not religious myself, so I decided to work on the idea of modern icons. I studied fine art painting and also have love photography so I wanted to find a way to mix my love for fashion, art and photography in a way that was funky and wearable.
I love seeing people express themselves and their own style and interests through fashion. I love the diversity of the people who wear Kiki Na jewellery – from old to young, male and female. I am particular with the images I use as I need to enjoy creating the pieces and to feel a connection when creating them.
They need to be meaningful and artistic.
