“We are gypsies, we are nomads, we have journeyed and we have gathered. We exist in the modern world but retain a deep connection with our roots. Throughout time people, tribes and societies have been creating jewellery, expressing their heritage and culture through art worn in plain sight. This perfectly represents our spirit”
We have travelled this beautiful planet. We have been inspired by the wonders of the natural world and have observed the many cultures that inhabit it. As we journeyed through the far-east we were fortunate to encounter a people known as the Banjara Tribe who create special jewellery made from a mixture of materials, old and new, all of which had been found and collected. They made their jewellery - in the form of rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, using a combination of colourful threads, textiles, shells and old coins amongst other materials available to them. We love and embrace the idea of making a non-precious material, precious. Combining these materials with sterling silver adds a warmth and charm to our jewellery design.
Banjara Jewellery is about exploration, discovery and the never-ending journey.
Banjara was founded by Danielle Hill & Elise Shabat, all our pieces are designed by Danielle and assembled with love in our Melbourne studio.
