Bespoke, Handmade, Once Off Eco Jewellery Designs
Nu4u design stunning, handmade eco jewellery. Each piece is lovingly created by Australian jewellery maker Jo Male. Jo’s approach to jewellery uses a combination of otherwise detrimental marine debris along with beautiful natural elements, to create resin bangles, earrings and statement necklaces. This repurpose, upcycle and save philosophy results in each piece being 100% unique and a conversation starter.
What It Takes To Create 1 Piece Of Eco Friendly Jewellery
Purchasing a handmade, eco-friendly Nu4u piece represents several hours of beach walks, cleaning and sorting through piles of marine debris, which then tells a story that you can wear with pride. Every little piece of plastic waste, fishhook, netting, rope and lure represents marine debris that is no longer causing havoc in our oceans and endangering our marine wildlife.
Often, Jo combines this man made and synthetic marine debris with washed up shells, fallen seed pods, recycled handmade beads, gold leaf and eco friendly dyes. Each piece is an artistic alternative to contemporary jewellery and much friendlier on our environment.

The Eco-Friendly Bandwagon
Two things that are unlikely to change, our love of fashion and our growing awareness and consciousness of minimising our negative impact on the environment and the world at large.
The environmentally and eco friendly trend is one that consumers of all ages are supporting more and more. Those supporters of ‘all things green’ are increasingly eager to showcase their beliefs through their purchasing decisions, including what they wear. Jewellery is just one of many ways you can be seen ‘promoting’ your beliefs while potentially sparking beautiful conversations with those around you.
Sustainable fashion, vegan friendly fashion and low impact fashion are also buzzwords that didn’t really exist until recently.
The great news is that we tick many of these boxes too. Yes, even some of our jewellery pieces are considered vegan whereby no animal products have been included. Where feathers have been included, these are feathers which have been discarded by wild birds.
Perfect for guilt free, conscious gift giving!

Eco Friendly Bangles
Our Eco Friendly Bangles are often themed. Whether with fish hooks, fishing line and swivels through to cast netting, micro plastics and washed up shells, every bangle is unique and tells a story of what’s going on in our oceans.
For smaller hands, we recommend our resin bangles, with several designs to choose from. For those with larger hands, our wrist cuffs offer a more comfortable option.

Bags for a Purpose
In support of women living in remote areas of Papua New Guinea, we import and stock a range of beautiful, traditionally hand woven bilums. Each bilum represents a community of women, living in isolation and with no easy access to electricity, medical aid or sometimes even schools for their children.
Bilums are directly purchased from each woman at the price of their choosing. This enables and empowers these women to earn a dignified income that is safe and sustainable. We add only a small markup to help continue our partnership with Maula PNG, helping provide greater exposure for these amazing craftswomen.
