Celebrating our Unique with Pandora

Anyone that knows us as sisters, or business partners, OR best friends, knows that we are complete opposites of one another. Where you might find Kii wearing wide-brimmed hats and boots, you’re likely to find Kahyi in lace, loose fitting trousers and sandals.

This also shows in the type of jewellery we are each drawn to. Although we are both generally minimalist in our approach, Kii will most likely be seen stacking her necklaces and rocking some edgy rings. Kahyi – flower child that she is – is all about the more feminine/floral pieces.

We are often asked how we make these differences work. The key to successful partnerships, of every kind, is the appreciation of each other’s individuality. Then, communicate, communicate, communicate! We spend a lot of our time talking to each other (and sending each other screenshots of funny memes and our latest fashion obsession).

Speaking of fashion obsessions, a little under a year ago, we were invited to the official opening of Pandora Zambia, at Levy Mall, here in Lusaka.  You can imagine our excitement.  Firstly, Pandora is one of the largest jewellery brands in the world, and secondly, they focus on building a story around your memories and celebrating relationships, with their amazing signature charm bracelets, rings and neck pieces.

Which is why we were beside ourselves – with giggles – when this month, we got to celebrate our own relationship by picking pieces that were uniquely us, and reminded us of each other.

As is the MaFashio way, we grabbed all our Pandora goodies and turned the celebration into a photo shoot.

That said, Enjoy!
