You might have already read about this collaboration on Instagram or Facebook; time to introduce you our limited edition of jewelry hangers, the ‘Nairobi’ DIY kits made by me and Savannah Chic.
It basically all started with a lucky meeting! To be in the right place, at the right time… Shruti of Savannah Chic and I actually met last year at the Fashion Hotel in Zurich. I was amazed by her brand’s spirit and handwork coming from Kenya, with its gold messing materials and its bright colors on fabrics… As we appreciated each other, we meet again, so that we started to set up a challenging collaboration project…
In February this year we met up again, and after some minutes it was it: We should launch a product that features a concept and ‘how-to’ DIY by me as well as handmade decorative details from her brand Savannah Chic. As you’ll see, jewelry is her speciality so the idea of creating a jewelry hanger came naturally to us!
For us it was important to focus on natural elements, for this reason we choose to mix bamboo sticks and cord of cotton.
The DIY kit includes almost everything you need to create your own jewelry hanger, from the basic materials (cord, sticks, thread and needle) to the decorative embellishments by Savannah Chic made of glass and beads -as well as some metallic paint! Also included: a instruction sheet, that explains you how to set it up. It’s really simple!
It’s a nice gift for jewelry lovers, DIY fans -and also fairtrade enthusiasts! The work with Savannah Chic is sustaining kenyan hand workers. The result is really decorative on a minimalistic wall, the quantity of jewels that you have doesn’t matter. I even think that it shouldn’t look ‘overcharged’, the paint effects are finishing it perfectly.

The ‘Nairobi’ jewelry hangers are now available online in three colors (nature/ redwine/ seagreen): you’ll find them at the Savannah Chic’s website.
EDIT 17.08.15: Less than 4 pieces are available in nature and redwine!
We hope you’ll like it, have a good day!
