Fiji born and internationally raised Natasha Kalara Duncan, Jewellery designer and jeweler by trade. Natasha was trained in traditional jewellery techniques in Lisbon, Portugal. Following her studies, she was taken on as a jewellery techniques tutor at the very same school. All her handmade designs are brought to life in her home studio with sleek elegant lines defining Natashaâ€™s work. Silver and gold are her favorite materials to work with but she occasionally enjoys the challenge of venturing into the unknown.
