Fall Designer Watch: J & Flo Jewelry Company



This lovely lady, Nailah Ricco, was featured a year ago for her Happy People Products and since then she has evolved as a jewelry designer and to feed her creative spirit she’s created a line called the J&Flo Jewelry Company. Named after her aunt and best friend/cousin whom have traveled around the world, J&Flo represents their international fashion flair.  This New York native and New Orleans resident recently introduced a fall collection that is heavily infused with African inspiration and creations from the Philippines.

Here are a few of my favorite fall picks in the J&Flo collection:


 “I spend a lot of time studying past trade systems of the continent and expressions of cultural fashion and then identify suppliers to help me create my vision in a contemporary way. “


“I like the technique because I support other small businesses (suppliers) in their own handmade creations (found shells, found glass, bead creation, etc) and then take it to another level with my own talents.”


“I am also thoroughly moved by the meticulous bead creation coming out of the Philippines and the brass work coming out of Nepal. I get a lot of materials and inspiration from those places. “
