Mancika Designs offers guilt-free accessories, as each jewelry element is repurposed – as well as complete uniqueness – no two pieces are the same.
Value in the unique and beautiful should not be limited to High Street brands or over-priced designer wear. Neither should the materials. Beauty is an individual perception, as well as a taught set of schemes. Let us break down the barriers and confinements of so-called luxury items, to not only be made from precious stones and metals – which unfortunately are often far from being ethically sourced – let us celebrate treasure in the creativity!
Striving towards maintaining a zero-waste workshop, the only trash generated is the packaging in which the ear wires and findings are delivered in. The materials are all saved waste. Wine/champagne corks, glossy paper, vintage jewelry, fruit net, plastic straws…
Cork elements are from wine corks, cut and then covered with paper tiles (from old magazines). Each decoupaged cork element has a layer of lacquer for extra protection. Wooden beads are upcylced from vintage accessories.
