BEAUTY IS U.
HELLO I’m Asia, and I am magical wild woman and Toronto based jewelry designer. I create handmade jewelry, with an eco-conscious, industrial and afrocentric aesthetic. Since 2010, Wild Moon Jewelry has brought me around the world - Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, New York City, Ghana, and Swaziland - journeys which will continue to influence the ancient styles that define my designs.
My mission is to create eco-conscious designs that incorporate materials such as 100% recycled fine silver, recycled glass and repurposed brass and semi-precious stones. In addition to selling of fine jewelry through an online store and in select boutiques, I also offer jewelry making workshops for youth focusing on sustainability and curbing consumer waste through non-profit organizations in Toronto. Currently, Wild Moon Jewelry is moving toward a sustainable future includes the expansion into a social enterprise that provides a sales platform for other sustainable eco-friendly fashion accessory designers globally, beginning with the Biakoye collection of recycled jewelry from Accra, Ghana.
The Wild Moon Jewelry 2018 'YES PURE' collections were generously supported by the United Nations Association in Canada Green Corps Program, Ontario Arts Council and the Kokrobitey Institute.
