First up in my new Feel Good Fashion series, I'd like to highlight local jewellery designer behind Niin Jewellery. Last month, I was invited to an exciting event hosted by a lovely friend, Jeanine Hsu to celebrate the launch of her new Sienna and Aurora jewellery collections for Niin. I always enjoy attending her events not only to browse through the beautiful pieces she has created, but also to catch up with her and her dear family.
Of course, the new Aurora collection was amazing. It is inspired by the timelessness of light, which you can see captured by the drusy agate, crystallite and the pearly white shells used in the pieces.
Probably my favorite pieces from the collection were these Aurora inlaid earrings and this Aurora inlaid pendant necklace. Something about the shape of the necklace reminds me of a vintage pocket knife pendant.
And I really love the element of nature (either rivers or branches) running through this Aurora Stone necklace. It makes a real statement, I think. In fact, all of Jeanine's designs make a statement. It's a statement about her green values which include using sustainable and recycled materials in production, supporting small/family run businesses and being a social enterprise by collaborating with charities like WWF to raise environmental awareness.
From her showroom to her packaging, she keeps ethical practices at the core of her business. Anyone who knows me will agree that Niin is a brand I can truly stand behind.
