A lit­tle piece of THE IS­LANDS

mailife - - Fashion - By RACHEL NATH

Imag­ine hav­ing a mem­o­rable wear­able that re­flects Fiji’s nat­u­ral beauty around your neck or your wrist. Ideal for re­mind­ing you of that ro­man­tic trop­i­cal hol­i­day, isn’t it? Newly launched Adorn Fiji - Lux­ury Is­land Jew­els, gifts you this abil­ity to wear your mem­o­ries so at­trac­tively. The lo­cally owned lux­ury jew­ellery brand is in­spired by all that is Fiji and par­adise liv­ing. Sandy Lyons, the mas­ter­crafter be­hind the brand is deeply pas­sion­ate about the Fiji is­lands and wanted to cre­ate some­thing so beau­ti­ful it can’t help but re­mind ev­ery­one about her home.

Sandy took her pas­sion for cre­ativ­ity se­ri­ously and pur­sued it all the way to Adorn Fiji. “I grew up in Pa­cific Har­bour and spent my days in the sun­shine, on the river and in the ocean, ex­plor­ing the lush trop­i­cal gar­dens and run­ning bare­foot be­tween friend’s houses. There was so much beauty and cre­ativ­ity sur­round­ing me,” Sandy said.“My mum nur­tured the cre­ative in me, al­ways en­cour­ag­ing me to ex­press my­self, whether that was paint­ing in the gar­den or string­ing to­gether shell neck­laces.” While Sandy’s pas­sion be­gan at a very young age, so did her de­sire to show­case her tal­ents. “My en­tre­pre­neur­ial side ran strong from the be­gin­ning. I’ve al­ways worked out a way to sell my cre­ations in the neigh­bour­hood in or­der to buy more supplies and con­tinue to cre­ate more and more! “I spent my twen­ties in Syd­ney pur­su­ing a fine arts de­gree and con­tin­u­ing the dream of cre­at­ing and sell­ing, but on a big­ger scale and specif­i­cally in fash­ion,” she said. Af­ter tak­ing a year off to have a daugh­ter and move back to Fiji to set­tle into moth­er­hood and fam­ily life, it wasn’t long un­til she was again cre­atively in­spired.
