I cannot fault this transaction or the communication from the seller - From my first contact with KookkiDesignStudio until I received the custom order. Shani ensured that the items she was creating for me where as I wished - and they were exactly as I imaged when I received them. Thank you so much. 😊

I had three necklaces made and they were gorgeous. I received them soon after ordering and my nieces absolutely loved them. Thank you!
Humble beginnings of Kookki Designs
I have always loved handmade products and will always be inspired by people’s creative abilities. My own creative ability came into light later in my life when I was expecting my daughter in 2009. To decorate my little girl’s nursery. I set out painting Peter Rabbit characters, only then did I realise that I had a bit of a creative gene in me. Must thank my late grandma for that, she was very talented in many things and my hero. This discovery about myself sparked a real passion, I started painting, sketching things when ever possible, (sort of gone mad). With the arrival of my daughter I had a new dream, to be a good mum (no longer a carrier woman) and a happier person rather than being a number in the corporate world.
I am always passionate about travel, photography and nature. While I was being a full time mother I felt I had to do something else (yes I love to keep my self super busy). I taught myself how to make glass cabochon jewellery, by trial and error I developed my own technique. Where I started making personalised jewellery for close friends and relatives. Collecting paper, taking photos and coming up with new designs became my passion/obsession. I would stay up till early in the morning to create my "work". Now I am a lot better :) My Etsy store was opened in March 2012 when my baby boy was only 5months old.
The name “Kookki” comes from what I used to call my girl when she was a little baby. My kids inspire me to be who I want to be. I am determined to do what I strongly believe in which is to be a mum who can be there for the kids to love and to share our life together while showing kids they can do whatever they put their mind into. I am going to let my passions, love and the shear beauty that surrounds us guide me through my creative journey to achieve an alternate life style that will bring happiness to my family and the rest of the world.
You will find my passion for travel,nature, photography, specialty paper, vintage books from around the world combined in my pieces to create a moment that inspired me. I really do not limit my creativity to one area or one medium, I like to explore as I create.
I am truly thankful to everyone who supports me in my journey. "If there is a will there is a way". It is a lot of hard work but I know we all can get there if we put our minds to it!
My jewelry and accessories are for kids, women and men to suite any occasion such as birthdays, weddings anniversaries. Each piece is made at my home studio in Melbourne, Australia. The range of products I make include cufflinks, earrings, neckalces, pendants, rings, hair clips, fridge magnets, coasters. They all can be personalized with custom requests and are always sent beautifully wrapped.
***I spent 6 months in Sri Lanka with my kids to start a Giving Back Project which is now progressing well. I want to give back as much as we can to the world. My first project is to help educate and feed kids that are stuck in a cycle of poverty.
