FONU Jewellery invokes the mana (the power and spirit) of our natural world in true island tradition. Through a mark-making language of bold geometries and undulating lines, each piece tells a story that celebrates our personal and collective roots; summoning the strength of nature and belonging that propels our journeys through life.
Every piece of FONU Jewellery is an emblem of the earth forged in Sterling Silver 925 and burnished with South Pacific mana. Our yellow and rose tones are made from sterling silver with a PVD coating of 18K Gold or Rose Gold, for a longer lasting bond than regular plating. Versatile, classic, and bold, FONU Jewellery is for the modern warrior. From green to concrete jungles, across blue seas and skies, may you never lose the smell of saltwater from under your nose.
FONU Jewellery is designed in Suva by Fiji Island artist Anga’aefonu. Through her paintings and design work, Anga’aefonu draws from her mixed Polynesian, Melanesian and European heritage, and celebrates the cultural melting pot that is the Pacific, as well as our universal ancestral ties to the ocean, wherever we are in the world.
THE GRACEFUL GUARDIAN
Fiji has as many fern species as it does islands (approximately 330), and we likely have as many uses for this tenacious and giving plant. A pioneer plant in damaged environments, it infuses new life into the most impossible spaces. Ferns filter pernicious toxins from the air, the soil and water; and deliver shelter and food to entire ecosystems.
The fern draws damage from old wounds and breathes life into new worlds.
In delicate sterling form, we offer this Pacific fern motif symmetrically laid out on asymmetrical drop earrings, so that its leaves may guide you forward, and its resilient spine aligns with yours.
