WOMB x NGAHKAY

Every creation has a story, a history woven into its very fabric. For me, that story begins with my father, a master jeweler whose skilled hands brought beauty to life in every bead and thread he touched. What many of you may not know is that the accessories you've cherished over the years were crafted by none other than my father.

Growing up surrounded by my father's workshop, I was mesmerized by the colors, textures, and stories contained within his materials. He left behind not just his tools and treasures, but a legacy of creativity and craftsmanship that inspired me to carry on his work in my own way.

Exploring his materials became a journey of rediscovery—a chance to connect with his spirit through the beads he had once strung. As I experimented with upcycling his materials into something new, I began exploring ideas for their transformation.

From the vibrant hues of the beads to the intricate patterns of the threads, every element tells a story—a story of heritage, tradition, and love. In honor of my father's memory and his dedication to his craft, I proudly carry on his legacy through Ngahkay, his namesake brand.
