Introducing… Julia de Klerk!

Statement Floral Jewellery by Julia de Klerk!

Flowers are fabulous, don’t you think? Flower themed jewellery is always a favourite here at Hannah Zakari. Evocative of fresh spring days, it’s colourful, fun and versatile. Our love of all things floral means that we’re thrilled to introduce our newest designer to the shop: Julia de Klerk! Her delightful flower earrings and necklaces are a fresh twist on a timeless classic, and we think you’ll love her bold style.

Julia de Klerk’s jewellery is handmade from frosted acrylic in a range of bright colours. She adds texture and detail to these quirky pieces with hand etched patterns. The acrylic is heated then gently shaped into curved petals by hand, which gives them a depth rarely seen in acrylic jewellery. We love their unique 3D look!

The inspiration behind de Klerk’s jewellery comes from tropical foliage, Scandinavian design and retro floral patterns. The designer is a graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London, and now lives and works in Hampshire.

Here are some of the Julia de Klerk pieces we’re loving right now!

Introducing a new designer to Hannah Zakari, Brie Harrison!

We’ve recently started stocking some wonderful designs by a new designer to Hannah Zakari: Brie Harrison! Our card shelves are looking especially lovely right now as a result. They’re bursting with plant life, pattern and colour, all hallmarks of Brie’s work!

Brie Harrison is a British illustrator and designer based in Suffolk, where the beautiful surrounding countryside inspires her work. She’s a Printed Textile Design graduate, and you can see the influence of that background in her skilled use of colour and pattern!

Cosy Up with Miss Pom Pom!

By

Colourful scarves and winter accessories by new designer Miss Pom Pom!

It’s officially Autumn in Edinburgh, and the chill is already taking hold! I love this time of year: crisp leaves, cold air, Halloween and of course, knitwear. Because the best thing about the cold is wrapping up against it, and doing it in style!

Our newest designer at Hannah Zakari is helping us do just that. Miss Pom Pom is an independent knitted accessory maker whose fun, Memphis inspired graphic knits are brightening up the shop (and our necks) right now. These oversized knits are as cosy as they are colourful, being made from a thick and super soft acrylic yarn! The bold, graphic scarves and chunky hats are a perfect match for each other. They’re a welcome antidote to the idea that Winter dressing should be less colourful!

All Miss Pom Pom’s scarves and hats are vegan and hypoallergenic, a plus for anyone who needs to stay warm while avoiding wool! Check out our collection of their goodies here:

Introducing – ANO Studio

By

New Risograph Prints by ANO Studio – Dreamy Urban Landscapes

A close up view of an ANO Studio Risograph print. A red haired girl stares at a pink shrimp held between chopsticks.

This collection of riso prints by ANO studio captures the complex spirit of city life. With towering buildings, lonely rooms, bustling streets and empty malls, these urban landscapes feel simultaneously busy and eerily quiet. They cleverly explore the idea of loneliness (or serenity) in the crowd!

ANO Studio is a brand new designer to Hannah Zakari, and we are absolutely in love with their work. ANO is the sole creation of Hannah Kay Piché, an independent designer and illustrator based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her inspiration comes from travel and geometric forms, with a clear influence from Japanese design. The studio’s name is also inspired by Japan: “ano” is a pronoun in Japanese, roughly translating to “that thing over there”.

ANO’s risograph prints are printed in a harmonious pink and blue colour palette using soy-based inks.

ANO Studio’s risograph prints are all produced in a limited edition of 25 and stock is very limited, so get in there if you’d like one for your home! They look great either alone or paired together.

You can find these lovely prints and our full range of wall art over on the Hannah Zakari webshop!

Brass, Bling and Boobs – New Designers at Hannah Zakari!

By

We’ve introduced three new designers at Hannah Zakari!

I don’t want to jinx it, but I think it’s finally Spring in Edinburgh!  It’s that little bit lighter in the evenings when we close the shop, and that little bit warmer during the day (we’ve even been brave enough to leave the door open a couple of times). And in the spirit of seasonal rejuvenation, we’ve had a bit of a spring refresh of our stock! As well as new designs by longtime HZ favourites, we’ve introduced three new designers to our range: Coucou Suzette, Freya IM and Fizz Goes Pop. Here are a few of our favourite pieces from their collections!

Coucou Suzette

Coucou Suzette is a designer from Paris whose accessories channel all things kitsch and colourful. From crew socks to wall art to enamel pins, we think these fun designs make perfect gifts! Coucou Suzette’s collection includes designs based on Japanese geishas, eyes, sushi – and boobs. Lots and lots of boobs!

Fizz Goes Pop

Fizz Goes Pop is the creation of Lizzie Lafrate, a Cardiff based creative with a background in graphic design that comes across in her bold, geometric jewellery. Bright complementary colours, asymmetry and super shiny mirrored materials make these earrings fantastic statement pieces!

Freya Im

Freya Im is a designer based in Glasgow, Scotland! Her jewellery is playful and informal, designed with fun and accessibility in mind. We love her grumpy face pin badges and pendants, as well as her quirky brooches inspired by the female form. Freya makes her jewellery from brass, a more sustainable metal than either silver or gold, and encourages the wearer to embrace its natural ageing process for a unique look.

All the patches! Cute old and new iron on patch designs by Mokuyobi Threads

Colourful, fun iron on patch designs by Mokuyobi Threads

Do you have an ancient denim jacket in need of an update? A hat with a weird stain you want to cover up? A backpack that’s the same backpack you’ve already seen ten other people carrying this morning? To all these problems, there is one solution: an iron on patch! They’re ideal when you want to freshen up, repair or add individuality to your clothing. Embroidered patches are also a fun way to telegraph your personality, your hobbies, and the things you really care about to the world. With a long history of association with counterculture they’ll always feel a bit alternative, even when they’re as cute and colourful as the ones we have at Hannah Zakari!

Because we think embroidered patches are awesome, we’ve just added a few more great designs to the HZ collection. This fun assortment of patches from LA based independent accessory designer Mokuyobi Threads features some brand new styles and some long time favourites, all of them colourful, quirky and a total delight to wear. Mokuyobi’s designs are for people who like to stand out!

Here’s a collection of our favourite Mokuyobi Threads patches, with themes spanning from outer space and international travel to ghosts, music and hot dogs.  Each one is like a tiny, affordable artwork!

A brand new collection from Wolf & Moon!

Every time a new Wolf & Moon collection arrives at the shoppe the first thing we do is agonise over which pieces we want ourselves! Collection No. 9 is no exception.

Her pieces use geometric shapes, clean lines, unusual materials, movement and asymmetry to create a truly modern look!

Introducing… Buried Diamond!

By

Magic, mysticism and glitter from new jewellery designer Buried Diamond

When you come into Hannah Zakari looking for jewellery, sometimes you’ll find the jewellery looking back!

We’re very happy to have a new range in the shoppe from Buried Diamond, whose bold eye themed pieces have really caught our gaze this Spring.

Buried Diamond is the creation of Martha Moore Porter, an independent jewellery and accessory designer based in Brooklyn, New York. Porter, disappointed that she couldn’t find any jewellery flashy enough to suit her own outlandish tastes, originally started out as a designer by making bold, colourful eye necklaces for herself. Unsurprisingly her fun pieces started to draw attention from others, and before long Buried Diamond was born!

The eye motif that started it all still runs strong through Buried Diamond’s pretty enamel collection. We love the glittery eye collar clips and the large Magic Eye brooch! As well as this signature symbol, the collection features pieces inspired by unlucky omens, witches hands, fearsome cats and summer fruit. It’s eclectic, outrageous, colourful and fun, and we hope you love it as much as we do!

 

 

 

This is just a little snapshot of our favourite Buried Diamond pieces; to view the full collection, including more necklaces, fun charm bracelets and cute fruit earrings, head over to the Hannah Zakari webshoppe!
