For years, our jewellery collections defined the cutting edge between creativity and design; inspiring buyers, stylists, artists, writers, bloggers, crafters and fashionistas everywhere with pieces that were unique, magnificent and timeless. These days, we are so divorced, and even discouraged from thinking about how the things in our lives get made. But MAKING - the art of using one's own two hands, with skill and precision - has been in Akong's DNA since Day One. Every Akong piece started off as just a possibility of chains, beads, trims and components, that were strung, stitched and connected, through an intuitive creative process, by Nicole's own two hands.
Our journey has taken us way beyond our beginnings as a Jewellery House. Our mission is to excite, nurture and empower the creative human spirit - one awesome design at a time. We want to help those who, like us, who are called to use their hands to express what is in their hearts, by giving them the knowledge to perfect their craft, a platform to show their work and the inspiration to know what is possible.
SPOTLIGHT ON : KATERINA ROZA
My first encounter with Katerina came on 25 February 2017, shortly after I announced I was leaving the world of jewellery. She sent me the most lovely and heartfelt message via Facebook that went on to change everything that Akong was about from that point on.
