Announcement   ✶ I'm so glad you popped by! ✶

I hope you like jewelry with clean lines, delicacy and natural elements. Don't hesitate to contact me! I'm here for you!

My name is Sara Kallus. As a goldsmith and designer I draw my inspiration from the cold, natural landscapes of my childhood in Sweden and the widespread desert dunes and rough texture of my current home in the south of Israel. This combination creates an original style with the characteristics of clean lines, delicacy and natural elements. I love to work in silver but am also experimenting with leather, cement and rubber. The concept of simplicity and clarity gave the name "NAKI" which means "clean" in Hebrew.

In case you prefer gold, please let me know which piece of jewelry you are interested in and I'll send you a price offer.

NOW!! If you love our beautiful Mother Nature and would like to help in preserving our enviroment you should take an extra look at the collection "Naturally Silver" which is based on elements selected and picked up from surrounding nature.
Leaves have been put in a bath of electrolytic solution to deposit silver on the surface. This way you get a piece of jewelry with an actual natural and unique element, every leaf different from the other. Twigs have been selected, molded and worked in to bracelets, rings and earrings. The collection is the result of a cooperation with the SPNI (The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel).

SPNI is a nonprofit public organization with a mission to protect the environment, nature and historical heritage in Israel . The company works to protect spaces and public areas in Israel, to increase public involvement in major cities for the environment and better quality of life, and preserving a variety of flora and fauna in the country, and habitats that characterize the Land of Israel. The company is also engaged in imparting education and spread the values and love for nature and the environment to the younger generation and the community as a whole. 70% of your purchase goes straight to support SPNI in their wonderful work.

Enjoy your visit! <3

I would love to review this item, but have never received it. the shop owner has however since refunded my money. the only reason there is one star rating, is because I had put at least one star in order to post this review.

About

Inspired by opposites

I would never have thought that this would be the turn I would choose in life! Coming from a background in computers, marketing, animating, programming... the step seems pretty far to decide to become a silver smith.
Moving from my childhood home Sweden to the desert landscapes of south Israel could have something to do with it. There where so many new impressions, landscapes, emotional events, culture explosions! Suddenly I got the urge to find an outlet of all that creative energies that was pushing and kicking in my head wanting to get out. I just had to start creating...something...but what?

As so often in life the road was already laid out in front of me. A friend talked me into joining her to a course in silver smithing and stone setting.
Hammering away in the workshop, working with fire, melting gold, setting stones, bringing ideas to life... I was hooked!

You can see my two worlds clearly in my collections. There are geometrical shapes, clean lines, purity, simplicity - most probably from my Scandinavian side. And then there are the more wild, natural rough pieces - inspired from the burned raw nature of my new homeland.

From the first time I accidentally ended up in the Etsy shop of a girl creating amazing knitted dolls I fell in love. Etsy is like a magical forest full of creativity, gifted people, imagination, stories, hard work, beautiful material, fantasy... If I'm not careful I can spend a whole day just wandering around from one magical place to another. I'm honored to have a shop here and I hope you will enjoy your visit here with me!

Lots of love! Sara

    I'm so glad you stopped by! My name is Sara. I'm the owner of NAKI and just a normal Swedish girl who moved to the desert in Israel where I married the love of my life and changed profession from computer engineering to silver smithing.

Welcome to NAKI Design

I hope you're enjoying your visit and if you need any assistance don't hesitate to ask!

The word NAKI means clean. I'm trying to keep this as my motto when creating my pieces. Not too much fuss, not too much "bling". Just pure, clean and beautiful! I think that silver in it self is such a beautiful material and even more so with sun tanned skin as canvas.

My jewelry are all handmade. Every piece is carefully worked on and made specially for you after you place your order. This is the reason that the time it takes before you receive your piece might vary. All the jewelry that you see on this page are made from sterling silver. All is delivered in beautifully decorated boxes.

I really hope that you will find what you are looking for. And again, don't hesitate to ask!
