Inspired by architectural shapes, as well as the natural landscapes of Tanzania, each Nyumbani Design piece is hand-sculpted by skilled African artisans. This ring is part of the Nautical Passages collection, inspired by Venice’s canals and storied streets; the black echoes the painted old doors, dark-hued gondolas and wrought iron-work of the romantic city. The shape and texture is inspired by the seafaring tradition of the place, brought together in the most stylish, modern way. A modern take on romance.

Smile please! This super-cute, 3D, camera pendant even has a see-through viewfinder to look through – it’s a toy and a necklace. Laser cut from wood, it harks back to a more innocent time of 35mm film, flash bulbs and dark rooms filled with the sharp scent of developer. Retro, funny, and fascinating. Handmade in Australia.

Minimal, modern and elegant, this necklace is incredibly wearable, and hangs beautifully. The colours and shapes contrast and collide – a section of finely speckled black corian is cool against a hot yellow ball – and really stand out against plain tops. Wear it long or on the collar bone. Fully adjustable. Comes packaged in a branded kraft tube. Handmade in London.

Cord length 45cm and adjustable, speckled corian 60mm x 18mm, yellow ball 25mm
