Natalie Bankovic discovered her passion for design and flair in high school, studying design. It was 2004 when she made her first pair of earrings for a friend that she was discovered by exclusive boutiques and capturing attention in which, then Natina Jewellery was formed. Singer Ricki Lee was one of many that has worn her designer. "Everyday is a new Inspiration" is the concept of Natina Jewellery . Talking to Natalie at MeetingPOT, she brought up how, many people had asked what her inspiration was for her designs, and told me how it was a strange question because it came from when she was creating the individual pieces - the very thing that makes her pieces purely unique and not dated or following current trends which can be worn for many season to come. Each piece lets the wearer make a statement, defining themselves as a unique individual. Natina designs are all exclusive and original.
Natina Jewellery offers pieces that are versatile. I remember when I first looked upon Natalie's jewellery I loved the pieces in which I saw could be worn from day into the night bringing life to any outfit. It definitely gave me the "wow- factor" statement which is the aim of Natina Jewellery. Personally, I love bold statement jewellery and what brings attention and I think this is what it gives.
The Natina Jewellery client would be a female aged 15-35 young hard workers who are idealistic and optimistic and highly entrepreneurial who also value quality, going out and socialising .
Natina jewellery provides exclusive designed quality pieces that are mid range priced. So this means it's affordable and buying quality which won't be found anywhere else.
These are only a few pictures of her collection and more to come. I personally love the first necklace. The detail of the snake contrasted by simple smooth black behind. I like it.
