We caught up with Sara, the founder and designer behind Ocean Boheme — this is her story.
Sara developed a love for ocean and mountain boardsports and spent years travelling the world seeking out jobs in exotic countries; teaching windsurfing in Corsica and France, working on a pearl boat in the Indian Ocean, selling shell jewellery on the beaches of Hossegor and working on a dive boat in the Whitsunday islands.
Sara, describe Ocean Boheme in five words?
What inspires your brand?
The threat of plastic pollution also has a big impact on influencing the decisions I make with regards to production, materials and packaging.
Who do you have in mind when you design new pieces?
What’s been your biggest challenge with Ocean Boheme?
Where do you source your stones and shells from?
Where do you see the brand growing and who would you love to see wearing your designs?
I have also started working on non-jewellery lines such as Coconut Sea Salt Hairspray which comes in glass bottles and Seaweed & Salt Shampoo bars to reduce the amount of plastic bottles in the environment. I am also bringing out clam shell jewellery holders and have lots of other ideas – watch this space!
