About

I made myself a necklace

Carolyn Waweru Jewellery is about colour, light and fun encapsulated in the beautiful ribbons and the spaces between the ripples that dance around the beads. I started my jewellery brand as an expression of the inspiration I saw around me in Hong Kong, and I want it to inspire and delight those who wear it too.
I made myself a necklace, I had some scrap silk print fabric that I just loved and I used it with chunky wooden beads to make what I now call scarf necklaces, beads at the front, fabric 'scarf' tie at the back. I wore it with jeans and t-shirt or a plain dress and got compliments almost without fail every time I wore it. Then I made one as a gift and started to think maybe I could sell them.
I'm and expatriate living and working in Hong Kong. I've always been making things, for myself, and for my dolls when I was little! I can't not do it. I much prefer making something than buying it, so much more enjoyable and fun. Here in HK there is an amazing array of trims and fabrics, beads and buttons available. My jewellery business really started after I had a table selling my necklaces at my church's May Fair. Then I realised I could sell them at craft fairs, then I heard of Etsy and opened my shop. It's so amazing to sell to someone I haven't met, across the other side of the world, I love it!!

    I love making things, I sewed my first skirt on Mum's treadle Singer machine aged 7. Now I live and work in Hong Kong and have access to amazing materials on the local market which I just had to use for something, my jewellery grew out of that.

All the necklaces are hand made and unique, I rarely make 2 the same. I love creating them and I hope that owning one of my pieces will bring you joy too! Personally I love how special pieces like this become attached to certain memories, the person who gave it, the occasion or place.
