In Arabic culture, Nahla means 'First drink of water'... In Africa, it means 'Successful'.

Our Nahla necklace features authentic and traditional miniature Coptic cross pendants handcrafted by the Kemise Tribe from Eastern Ethiopia.  Beaded by hand in our Byron Bay studio on the East Coast of Australia, this delicate and feminine necklace sits around the décolletage.

Available in two distinct styles, the silver crosses are made from an amalgamation of metals such as nickel, copper and brass, with a silver metal wash applied to the finished product.  We have beaded the silver cross with small natural colour African style matte beads.  The brass crosses are made from solid brass, with a copper metal wash applied to the finished product.  We have beaded the brass cross with metallic bronze beads. 



All our products come in either an envelope style gift bag, or gift box. FREE SHIPPING for all orders over $200.
 
 
At Republic of You we aim to create unique, meaningful and sustainable fashion jewellery supporting the slow fashion movement. We do this by ethically sourcing authentic traditional vintage and collectible desert-silver jewelry from tribal villages around the world. We then dismantle these pieces (often too elaborate and heavy to wear in their original state), and recreate them, paring them back, simplifying, fusing old with new, and breathing new life into them, with the end result being a bespoke modern contemporary tribal look suitable for everyday wear.
 
Each and every piece has been crafted by hand, features naturally sourced materials, and is presented to you in a Limited Edition or One-Off, One-Of-A-Kind (OOAK) capacity, with no two pieces being exactly the same due to the genuine vintage (non mass-produced) elements of each.
 
The terms ‘tribal’ and ‘gypsy’ are thrown around haphazardly in fashion circles these days, but few in our fast-fashion generation, made up of social influencers, fashion bloggers and the hoards of people that follow them, understand the cultural significance or origin of this traditional jewellery. Where possible we aim to honor the original artisans by detailing a slice of information about the tribe, region, religious or cultural interpretation, or simply just some interesting folklore pertaining to the piece. The result, our jewelry is not only aesthetically appealing, it becomes an educational and symbolic conversational piece, creating more meaning and greater connection for the wearer.

"Considered a gift from the Great Spirit to the Native American people, the buffalo represents: wisdom, patience, prosperity, gratitude, abundance, strength, stability, consistency and blessing.  The buffalo teaches us to remain grounded, find strength to carry on our path, to be in harmony with Mother Earth and to connect with the sacredness of life."

Inspired by the profound wisdom of Native American culture, our black buffalo skull pendant has been intricately carved by hand using buffalo horn. We have paired this pendant with small recycled glass matte beading, and draped it in brass chain. This handmade tribal necklace is a very special piece and we encourage our customers to take the time and read our 'History' Menu below for further information on the cultural significance of the buffalo.  


Please Note: We source our buffalo horn from a lady who lives in the Blackhills of South Dakota. For the past 20+ years she has worked closely with a group of Sioux and Lakota Native Americans who hunt and gather expired animals (namely buffalo and deer). These native animals have either become victim to road-kill, died of starvation during the winter months, or have been hunted for food.

This contemporary tribal necklace is a Limited Edition piece that has been crafted by hand in our Byron Bay studio on the East Coast of Australia.  

Inspired by Ethiopian tradition, we have given this necklace a modern ethnic tribal feel with an edgy urban street aesthetic.  Designed as a single layer piece, it is also long enough to double wrap around the neck to be worn in a shorter style also, it features:
• Genuine miniature desert-silver (also known as German Silver) Coptic cross from the Kemise Tribe of Eastern Ethiopia.
• Traditional and authentic desert-silver vintage beads, circa 1960s, from the Kuchi People of Afghanistan (see History Menu below).
• Knotted and wrapped black kangaroo hide leather from Australia.
 

"The word Kuchi stems from a Persian word meaning migration. Originating from Afghanistan, the Kuchi People roamed areas along the ancient Silk Road trade routes for an estimated 3000 years. This jewellery has traveled untold distances from village to village, and passed from generation to generation. We believe it’s the irregularities in each piece that form part of its charm, heritage, and value."

Once In A Blue Moon is an exotic Limited Edition neckpiece that has been intricately crafted by hand in our Byron Bay studio... We have designed it with the dual option to wear as either a single layer piece, or double wrapped around the neck to be worn in a shorter style also. Although rooted in ethnic tradition, this unique necklace has a stunning bohemian feel and fresh tropical island beach vibe with the inclusion of seashells.  

This statement necklace features:
• Traditional and authentic rich royal sapphire blue Lapis Lazuli cross from Afghanistan.
• Genuine handcrafted silver coin pendants from the Kuchi People of Pakistan/Afghanistan, (see History Menu below).
• Clusters of tropical cowrie seashells from East Timor (see History Menu below).
• Blue miniature glass, teal recycled glass and navy blue wood beading.
• Deep ocean blue kangaroo hide leather from North Queensland, Australia.
 
"Associated with the third eye chakra, the Lapis Lazuli can be traced back to ancient Egypt where royalty believed in its power to stimulate openness to the spirit world and infinite possibilities of the imagination. Once used to decorate the tomb of pharaoh King Tutt, the Lapis Lazuli crystal helps bridge the gap between the physical world and the spiritual realm, a merging of the past and present. Lapis is believed to promote critical thinking, assisting in intellectual analysis, problem solving, and the generation of new ideas. It helps the individual gain knowledge to look at situations clearly and objectively."

Designed for both men and women, this solid brass skull pendant necklace was inspired by the love union of American punk rock poet Patti Smith, and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Both fashion icons in their own right, this edgy necklace celebrates the timeless impact punk subculture has had on pop culture, not only in music and art, but also fashion.
 

CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE 
For eternity Buddhist Monks have used skull prayer beads during meditation to monitor their chant... Traditionally the skull is a representation of the impermanence of life and the limitation of human knowledge and understanding. The use of the skull mala beads in meditation is said to beckon the reflection of life, and the inevitability of death... in doing so, one is said to embrace life to the fullest and be filled with compassion.

'Enchanted Forest' is an intricate contemporary tribal style neckpiece that falls into our Limited Edition range with only 4 created. Each necklace has been hand-beaded, leather wrapped, and crafted by hand in our Byron Bay studio on the East Coast of Australia... Designed to be worn as a single layer piece, it is also long enough to double wrap around the neck and wear in a shorter style.

This statement necklace features:
• Traditional decorative hand tooled and hand-etched silver-alloy ‘sun’ pendant from the Banjara People, a nomadic gypsy tribe from Northern India (see History Menu below).
• Authentic silver-alloy (also known as; white-metal, desert-silver and German silver) coin pendants from the Kuchi People of Pakistan/Afghanistan, (see History Menu below).
• Genuine old white metal beads from Ethiopia.
• Small clusters of tropical cowrie seashells from East Timor (see History Menu below).
• Miniature recycled glass and ceramic beading.
• Forest green kangaroo hide leather from Australia.

PLEASE NOTE: The Banjara 'Sun' pendant in each piece varies ever-so-slightly in size and design, therefore may not be exactly as pictured here. This is because each necklace is totally unique, with our feature pieces collected from different tribal villages throughout Northern India.

It is important to remember the exotic feature pieces in our jewellery have traveled untold distances from village to village, and passed from generation to generation. We believe it’s these irregularities in each piece that form part of its charm, heritage, and value.

The terms ‘tribal’ and ‘gypsy’ are thrown around haphazardly in fashion circles these days, but few in our fast-fashion generation, made up of social influencers, fashion bloggers and the hoards of people that follow them, understand the cultural significance or origin of this traditional jewellery. Where possible we aim to honor the original artisans by detailing a slice of information about the tribe, region, religious or cultural interpretation, or simply just some interesting folklore pertaining to the piece. The result, our jewelry is not only aesthetically appealing, it becomes an educational and symbolic conversational piece, creating more meaning and greater connection for the wearer.

Inspired by the diverse aspects of our great land, Desert Oasis is an exotic modern contemporary Limited Edition necklace with tribal coastal influences.   Handcrafted in our Byron Bay studio on the East Coast of Australia, it features:

• Authentic and traditional silver-alloy vintage coin pendants handmade by the nomadic gypsy Banjara Tribe of Northern India (see History Menu below).
• Clusters of tropical cowrie seashells from East Timor (see History Menu below).
• Knotted and wrapped brown/tan kangaroo hide leather from Australia.


It is important to remember the feature tribal silver pieces in our jewellery have traveled untold distances from village to village, and passed from generation to generation. We believe it’s these irregularities in each piece that form part of its charm, heritage, and value.

"Destined to transfer good luck, fortune and material wealth to those in its possession, the cowry shell is considered a deeply spiritual and highly valued object in African culture. The cowrie carries with it the blessing of Moté, ancient deity and goddess of water, also affectionately referred to as ‘Mother of Water’."

Tribal Muse is an exotic and totally unique contemporary tribal necklace... Handcrafted in our Byron Bay studio on the East Coast of Australia, this necklace makes a bold and elaborate statement with its edgy design. 

It features:
• Genuine buffalo teeth from South Dakota (see History Menu below).
• Authentic handmade vintage silver-alloy ghungaroo bell beads, circa 1960s, from the nomadic gypsy Banjara Tribe of Northern India (see History Menu below).
 • Clusters of tropical cowrie seashells from East Timor (see History Menu below).
• White ceramic beading.
• Knotted and wrapped white kangaroo-hide leather from Australia.

"Considered a gift from the Great Spirit to the Native American people, the buffalo represents: wisdom, patience, prosperity, gratitude, abundance, strength, stability, consistency and blessing.The buffalo teaches us to remain grounded, find strength to carry on our path, to be in harmony with Mother Earth and to connect with the sacredness of life."


PLEASE NOTE: We source our buffalo teeth from a lady who lives in the Blackhills of South Dakota. For the past 20+ years she has worked closely with a group of Sioux and Lakota Native Americans who hunt and gather expired animals (namely buffalo and deer). These native animals have either become victim to road-kill, died of starvation during the winter months, or have been hunted for food.
