BWA chats to the incredible talented designer behind Alushia Sanchia Jewellery- shop the collection here!
What inspired you to start your own jewellery brand?
Its been my dream since I can remember, I am just following my heart. I have a little boy and I would love to show him that you can work hard and make your dreams come true.
What inspires your aesthetic?
I am inspired by different cultures, tribes of the world, and beauty in all its forms. ‘Tipony’ was born from my love of Native American symbology, totems, and aztec patterns.
Who are your style icons?
My mother, and Stevie Nicks- her style in the 70’s was amazing!
Can you tell us a bit about your latest collection?
‘Tipony’ is from my heart- basically I designed pieces that I wanted to wear myself. The collection encompasses strong protective qualities, spirituality, animal totems and tribal designs
The key piece that sums up the collection?
The ‘Tusk Poison Bottle’ is something I designed a long time ago. The idea of it opening up for the wearer to store something safe and protected inside is a concept that I really love. Following the tradition of jewellery as a talismanic object, something that protects us and reminds us of our connection with the mystical world in which we live.
Who is the Alushia-Sanchia girl?
A free spirit, inspired by the magic of the universe. A wanderer of the earth. A lover of different cultures.
What is next for Alushia- Sanchia?
Some exciting collaborations, a colourful new collection, and a few surprises!
If you could have breakfast with anyone alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Its a close call between Fleetwood Mac, being my favourite band, and my best friends because we all live in different parts of the world.
