So you have a beautiful collection of jewelry. You love every piece in your collection, but one day as you go to put it on, alas! You notice that a piece has been ripped and all the beads are falling apart. You are anguished and frustrated and cursing out… Well, that’s what we call, “NOT CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY.”

In this piece we show you some cool ways you can store your jewelry at home to avoid them getting spoilt or torn. The ideas are pretty simple and can be done by just about anyone. Enjoy.

1. The Frame

Get a cute old picture frame or window frame that you no longer use, take some wire (silver/copper) then string it from one end to another and create 3 to 4 rows, then choose a good position maybe in your bedroom or bathroom and hang it there, viola, you have a cute earrings hanger.

You can also add some nails on it and use to hang necklaces and bangles. This will nicely sort out your jewelry for you.

DAVID Rudisha’s beautifully belligerent style of running gave the London Games their first track world record.

It was one of those life-affirming moments that left 80,000 people black and blue from pinching themselves.

The scale of the Kenyan’s achievement is that the incredible never looked in doubt. It was positively Bolt-esque in its wonder.

by the Times

He run like a man who was competing against himself and his time.A moment that unified all Kenyans and made us proud.

Proudly Kenyan….

The Intrigues of Shela collection Photoshoot!!!


What was to be our first photo shoot for the SHELA collection started out in Panaito Studios on Koinange street adjacent to Java coffee shop. Our photographer was the very artistic Zafarani the photo shoot took around 2hrs. We used rose white soapstone bust sculptures as the props for the shoot. We had a very intriguing morning transporting the props across the streets of Nairobi as on lookers took a moment to stare.

After the early morning photo shoot, we then proceeded to the Karura forest where we chose to capture the jewellery under the regal scenery of the Karura forest waterfalls. We decided on the waterfalls because the SHELA collection was inspired by nature.

Upon entry of the Karura forest, we were requested by the guide to buy a map so as to locate our destination with ease. However, we were confident we couldn’t get lost as this was not the first time in Karura forest and decided against it. The guide then instructed us to keep left and we would be there in no time.

We got on our way, kept left just as instructed and after an hour or so we realized that we were lost! We circled our way around until we met a guy who was cycling he told us to keep going till we reach a certain barrier. After about 45 minutes we arrived at the waterfall. Phew… what a relief! The whole journey to the waterfall took us 2hr and 45 minutes! Meaning we had almost circled the whole Karura forest. The scenery was worth the effort.

On reaching the waterfall, we had a lovely time during the photo shoot. We had two photographers and a model. One photographer captured the model while the other took photos of the whole photo shoot. What a great time! Zafarani the photographer took the most amazing photos as he put himself in the most precarious positions just to get the best shots.

Our model, Cynthia Mwenje, did a wonderful job also in taking the best photos. She was easy to direct and very professional. We dressed her up in a silk like fabric that would be able to bring out the beauty of the jewellery.

All in all we had a great time and can’t wait for the next photo shoot! Thank you to all the photographers and our model.
