So as you all know I love to support local and started a segment where we could share, learn and inspire! It is so important to support local and share your findings with others.

During lock down, we are going to do a whole lot of these to highlight these businesses – many of which are taking HUGE strain during this time – and shed some awareness and love to all.

Today we are showcasing a brand called BRASS! Started by two lovely sisters (Lisa and Nikki), who love beautiful things, they started to source gorgeous jewellery collections from their travelling adventures internationally.

Their jewellery is created from high quality brass and then dipped into 21 carat gold.

They have a wide range of pieces, from trendy to more traditional to suit any style and many of their pieces incorporate gorgeous semi precious stones.

Stones such as : tourmaline, amethyst, labradorite, pearl, rose quartz, agate and turquoise.

Check out their Instagram and Facebook pages. Please follow them on Social Media to keep up to date on new collections and promotions!

We chatted to Nikki and she had this to say about their business!

Please tell us a little about your business and your products?

My sister and I began our business in 2015 after travelling in Europe and Asia and sourcing products that we loved. The jewellery we sell is made from brass and dipped in 21 carat gold and often embedded with semi-precious stones. Please find a little press release attached on us.
