Brainchild of fashion designer Imelda Widjaja, items in Jewel Rocks’ original line shows hints of ethnic Native American, Tibetan and Southeast Asian influences. Wooden cabinets are filled with accessories of different colours and compositions. Imelda travelled to various exotic destinations around the world where she inspiration for the pieces, including visits to Cape Town, Tokyo, Oahu, London, Antigua and a destination close to home, Komodo Island. Shades of green – moss, turquoise and mint – dominate Jewel Rock’s original pieces, a scheme chosen to represent harmony, good luck and wellbeing.
The latest collection is the Nautical Dream line featuring bracelets, accessories and dream catchers inspired by the ocean. Great as fashion accessories and decor, these quirky objects dangle with tiny jewels and teardrop lockets that represent colours, textures and symbols of seashells, dolphins, boat anchors and coral. The line was inspired by Imelda’s boat ride to Flores in Eastern Indonesia, when she observed varying shades of corals and marine life under the blue waves. Other peculiar items worth a browse that were inspired by other destinations include soft leather ‘chiu’ bottles, afghan money pouches, Brazilian charms, money bags and little imaginative ‘magic potion’ bottles filled with mysteriously bright green liquid.
