Nikki Kelly founder creative director Kellective by Nikki Jewellery maker Handmade
Heyyyy! If you're here it's because you want to get to know us.
 
I'm Nikki, wifey to Scott and Mam to Milo and Chet and Aspen. We live in Brisbane, Australia although I'm from Newcastle in the North East of England - that's right, I'm a Geordie!
 
I work with a cute little team - scroll down to see everyone!  Together we hand make every piece that leaves our tiny studio - from cutting our own bars and pendants to making rings and earrings. 
 
Kellective by Nikki came about for a couple of reasons I guess.  We had our first baby and suddenly realised we didn't have any family close by so I'd need more flexible work.  I also was made redundant from my corporate job and felt like I wanted to do something creative.  I have a love for the dainty, delicate and simple so I thought it would be cool to make a necklace with my new bubs name on it.  I had a few ideas to try then suddenly I had an Etsy store and people seemed to like what I was making.  
 
In our 8 years we've made over 185,000 pieces and counting.  We went from kitchen table, to home studio and now our third commercial studio - which we purchased ourselves!  I feel so incredibly blessed to have the job I do and touch so many people for special occasions. I feel like I've imagined my dream job and now I'm doing it. 
 
I'll also explain our name! 'Kellective' is a play on collective and our last name which is Kelly.  My sister in law thought of it and I really liked it - although with my accent it gets REALLY hard to spell over the phone. 
 
I hope I've answered some questions you might have had about myself and Kellective but if I've missed something you'd like to know feel free to email me -  hello@kellectivebynikki.com.au
 
Here's a photo of my little family to put a name to a face - Looking through my phone it seems we need to work on our family photo game.  This photo was hard to find!
