Be brave with your accessories with the latest collection from Mocha titled “Reborn.”
The name of this new collection for Mocha came from the original passion of jewellery making from creator Nicki. Although the passion never left and her creativity has always remained, life changed for Nicki where her focus of designing and creating beautiful pieces of jewellery moved to nurturing and raising her 3 beautiful children. A change many of us mothers know so well with trying to juggle work life and home life and finding that balance. Nicki has always played a major role at the heart and sole of Mocha whilst juggling her new found passion of motherhood.
As the kids have grown older and become more self sufficient, her passion and love for jewellery making was Reborn. Nicki remembers and reflects on where her love for jewellery making came from.
“I used to work my day job and would then spend my nights at home making jewellery and creating different pieces, all which had special little elements that would make that particular piece mean something to me. The designs were original and crafted from the highest quality materials which sparked joy and passion in me, something that my day job never did.
Those handcrafted original pieces is what assisted Mocha to take off and become the brand that it is today. My father, who passed away in 2006 was my rock and inspiration and I credit a lot of my business drive to my father. He was a risk taker when it came to business & he was successful.”
After the passing of her father, Nicki wanted to stay positive about her dreams and to let nothing get in the way of it. She knew how proud her father would have been about Mocha being created by her own hands. The day of her father’s passing, Nicki went home and found some comfort and inspiration in putting her creative skills to work and starting working on a new piece of jewellery. Nicki named that piece the ‘Charlie Necklace’ in honour of her father whose name was Charlie. To this day, she still has this one of a kind piece, resulting in one of her best selling designs.
“Making jewellery is part of my DNA. It’s what I’m meant to be doing” says Nicki.
‘The Reborn Collection is an intimate collection. Each piece may vary as they are handmade with love. When components run out, I improvise with something else. I can’t explain it, I just love what I do. If I could make jewellery every day, I would be in heaven.’
