The limit is your imagination! That was our key mantra when we developed Brappz. Now meet York, a native from Nyon, who showed us his creations last week at Boutique Catambo and WOW, we are so impressed 😱 He went far beyond by making his own jewelry creations with Brappz…the photos speak for themselves.
York discovered Brappz at Catambo Boutique in Nyon while searching for a gift (more info on Catambo below). Like us, he also loves colors and was immediately drawn to the colorful straps in the store. Intrigued by the design he decided to buy a few. While fiddling with the hooks, straps and charms his passion for creativity incited him to make his own creations of jewelry while using Brappz components along with other Swiss and African components he found in the boutique.
Some of his creations are really intricate, he found a way to weave the straps into the holes, and come up with this perfect design. Others are longer necklaces with pendants and charms attached at the end, he even made rings BRAVO!!! It is really amazing what one creates with a few straps, hooks and charms!
