Joansu [jo-uhn-su] [‘joa’ (from Adjoa) and ‘nsu’ (water; Akan)]
Striking, intricate and timelessly beautiful, the jewellery of luxury boutique label, Joansu, celebrates travel and movement.
Each piece embodies a different memory and speaks to those untold stories that are hidden behind the facades of buildings, oozing from charming natural settings, captured in quiet street corners and reflected in the conversations with cultures and people encountered en route.
Handmade from the finest materials inlcuding precious metal, precious stones, resin and textiles (such as wax printed textiles – Ankara), the boldly feminine collections are limited edition to guarantee your exclusivity.
Designing alternately from her ateliers in London and Paris, designer Adjoa Acquah’s vision behind the Joansu brand is to explore the impressions of travel and movement on the creative design process and in so doing, fuses her two great loves.
Joansu’s symbol originates from the royal traditional Kente, a visual art form and a source of ancient wisdom in Ghana. The six slender golden strokes in the symbol mimic the Mmeeda Kente geometrical pattern; a pattern that translates to “something that has not happened before”; a subtle reminder to Joansu Women to approach each day in that spirit: full of wonder, anticipation and love.
