The birth of a Bomani Woman

My love of jewellery design is an escape into my own wonderful world. I become lost in the research, sketching, sampling, creating and learning new skills and developing my own design language. I have always been a great believer in loving what you do and doing what you love.  I love creating, I love designing and I love sharing this with you. My  jewellery is my creative voice, my metaphoric armour, my journey and my discovery.

The Bomani collection was created during my final year of university where I studied jewellery design at Sir John Cass (LMU). This was the birth of my Bomani Tribe, it was created to represent strength, courage, and to evoke the warrior in us all. The word Bomani means warrior or solider and is an African/Egyptian boys name. I took the name and repurposed it for my designs and myself. I wanted to create jewellery and body adornment for the modern day warrior, male and female. Coming together to celebrate our differences, standing alone and feeling empowered and making a conscious decision to walk the path we choose.

Working in both metal and textiles allows me to communicate a narrative through my work; these contrasting materials represent the idea that we can be hard and soft, simple and intricate, strong and fragile. Sometimes it is hard to express ourselves with words, but what we choose to adorn ourselves with can reflect that still small voice within trying to be set free.

I am a Bomani Woman, welcome to my tribe…

Who is She? Bomani Woman (Episode 1)

Jewellery is more then body adornment, it is a personal style, an expression of who we are and a way of life. I want you to meet some of the people who make up our Bomani Tribe™ and bring our jewellery collections to life.

So allow me to introduce Nicole who features in our new jewellery campaign: VICTORY
She is a model/actress from London with Indian and Israeli descent, her beauty is mesmerising and her inner glow shines bright through her smile.  I was really excited to work with her and see her come alive in front of the camera.
