A Lazy Saturday Wandering Through Portobello Markets...

Posted by Najo AU Admin on

If anyone wants to experience a happening city, London is the place to go. Perhaps it is more alive since the Olympics, or maybe it has always been like that, but my recent visit was a delight. So much to see and do, but I honed in on looking at jewellery trends, architecture and retail. One lazy Saturday afternoon I spent wandering the Portobello Road market. What a treat! This historic market runs a good two miles through Notting Hill and is jam packed with vendors and visitors alike. For years this market has been world renowned for ‘its antiques,...

My Love For Silver Jewellery

Posted by Najo AU Admin on

I have loved silver for as long as I can remember. As a young girl I would stare into the Georg Jensen shop window in Sydney, amazed at the beauty of design, craftsmanship and aesthetic consistency of the jewellery and tableware. Some of those traditional designs are still my favourites today. I also remember fossicking through incense laden bazaars and to my delight finding an Indian silver necklace set with lapis and carnelian stones, cheap as chips that satisfied my love of ethnic jewellery design. Two ends of the spectrum, but equally lovely.     For jewellery designers, silver is...

Going Pink!

Posted by Najo AU Admin on

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Najo is supporting this great cause by helping to raise much needed funds for research by donating $5 from the sale of our ‘Pink Rapture’ items during the month of October. The National Breast Cancer Foundation raises money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer. Their aspirational goal is to have zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. I’m sure each and every one of you would know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Whether it’s a family member, friend or colleague that has been affected, it is...

It's Time To Launch La Senora... The Darker Side Of Mexico

Posted by Najo AU Admin on

“La Senora” is the next story in our Fiesta Collection. We wanted to express the darker side of the fiesta with La Senora. It has a smoky, mysterious tone, and it is about the surreal world of old Mexico, so we have used symbolic and traditional motifs in intricate, oxidised designs.     The inspiration for this came by looking at the photos of the passionate Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, and her lovely traditional Mexican attire. She always wore beautiful hand woven dark shawls, full dresses made from richly embroidered cloth, layers of necklaces, intricate chandelier earrings and rings on...

Launching Charro! Inspired By The Mexican Cowboy...

Posted by Najo AU Admin on

I have always loved the decorations of the Mexican cowboy or Charro. These metal embellishments are delightful. They adorn boots, belt buckles, jackets, sombreros, saddles and reins. The “Charro” story in the Fiesta Collection takes its inspiration from these motifs.   I imagine proud, skillful horsemen, prancing horses, twirling lassoos and the wide sierra. I hear Mariachis singing the traditional rancheros. Mixed metal discs hanging from cord necklaces, pyramid shapes on stretch bracelets, spinning rings, beaten brass and silver collars are just some of the designs from Charro. Embrace the Mexican spirit with “Charro”!! Browse our Current Collection Now>
