i discovered jewellery line Nandi Naya randomly while browsing one day, and judging by the name i wondered to myself if there was a South African link somewhere. turns out the designer behind the label is Hleziphansi Zita, and the line is named for her daughter, Nandi.

Hleziphansi Zita was born and raised in NYC is the daughter of exiled South African parents. Following in her artistic father’s footsteps the self- taught jewelry designer and artist is the founder of Nandi Naya est. 2015. Inspired by Art, Architecture & indigenous culture. Nandi Naya’s AW16 collection reflects on the influence of Moors presence during Europe’s renaissance. An expression of the cross cultural resonance that characterizes the African diaspora across Europe.

you can buy her pieces online at her shop and these stockists.
