I didn’t expect that these jewelry are so light. Since I recieved my first pair of earrings, I wore them every day. And sometimes I even forget I have them on! The material is unique and I feel really special. I have my casual pair of earrings for everyday use, and other more elegant models for special nights.

Especially nice handicraft. Unique. Horn as material is charming!

Our history in pictures

Alex Nikolo makes people happy with his handmade horn jewelry since 1992.

It all started when he decided to surprise his wife for her birthday with a very special and unique horn necklace. And he has not stopped since. Here is what he says about the very beginning: 

“I remember my first atelier. It was very small and hardly had any equipment. I literally started from point zero. I did all my myself with the loving support of my wife and family. I can’t say that it was easy, but when I started selling the jewelry, I was so happy. There is nothing like seeing someone appreciating your work.”

Below you can see some old pictures and precious memories from the time he and his wife had just started to share his beautiful art.
