Introducing the 'Nanga Necklace'

A collaboration necklace between Kicheko Goods & Kaleidos 

When Amanda, owner and curator of Kaleidos, and I came together to collaborate on a necklace for her new shop, we knew we wanted something summery, unusual and yet translatable to other seasons and occasions. Inspired by bodies of water and the vessels that float and sail upon its undulating waves, we experimented with various nautical knots. Highly functional in its strength and yet artful in its design, we found our anchor piece around which the rest of the necklace comes together. Concepting the necklace in segments, Amanda chose three colors that offered a vibrant pop of color and contrast of texture. I finished the segments with gold-plated magnetic closures to offer a versatile way of securing the necklace in place. While designed with each piece in mind, the necklace also allows for additional pairing of colors and textures giving the potential to evolve over the seasons.


Meaning "anchor," in Swahili, we named our collaboration "Nanga." World, meet the Nanga - we're so excited to share it with you. 

You have to find something, something that anchors you, something that keeps you looking forward.


The Nanga Necklace is both a playful and anchoring statement necklace that is a beautiful and natural adornment to any outfit. A balanced mix of color and texture, the Nanga can both stand out and blend in depending on the wearer's ensemble and styling. Perfect for dressy occasions and casual days, the Nanga is a versatile and distinctive accessory piece. Find your Nanga today at Kaleidos
