BO + BALA - [noun] pron. bow and ba-la
def. Bo "to live" and Bala "young"
BO + BALA : a children’s jewellery brand that fosters big dreams, promotes positive energy and embodies the whimsical and free-spirited nature of childhood.
.Bo + Bala was originally founded by two mums with young children in 2016. They found themselves constantly strengthened by their children’s characters, their capacity to love and their zest for life. It is from this inspiration coupled with their backgrounds in jewellery/graphic design that the brand was born.
The name BO + BALA means ‘TO LIVE YOUNG’.
I purchased the business in June 2018 and have built upon the solid foundations by adding a Baby's range as well as a small collection for boys.
My love of jewellery began at an early age when I coveted my mother's - both worn and tucked away in a jewellery box. My mother used to call me a little magpie! I am cultivating a similar passion in my own daughter, Mia, who is already contributing design ideas and proudly assists me in the fulfillment and wrapping of orders when she comes home from school. She loves to give feedback during the design process and model the new pieces for us which is super helpful!
"Every BO + BALA piece is made of the highest quality sterling silver and endeavours to capture the essence of childhood, promoting positive affirmations and strength. Bo + Bala is about celebrating childhood while building confidence and strength of character in our girls".
Bo + Bala is more than just a piece of jewellery - every piece comes with a story and a special attribute card, empowering the wearer and sending positive messages her way.
Jewellery lasts forever and can span generations - that is what makes it so cherished and the perfect gift for a special occasion. All of our jewellery is made from high-quality nickel free, 925 sterling silver.
‘To the children who inspire the collections and encourage us to LIVE YOUNG and DREAM BIG every day.’
