Meet our first Jungo’s co-founder, Clio from Black & Sigi. Clio set up Black & Sigi with her sister Athena in 2015, which was born from the idea of creating a piece of jewellery that could tell a story. They both have a passion to design and make wire wrapped jewellery with a distinctive modern twist that most importantly make you feel great. Each piece is designed and created from their studio in Leigh on Sea.
Here is their story…
The journey of Black & Sigi was inspired from an old college project of my sister, Athena. We picked up our tools shortly after I gave birth to my first child and self taught ourselves the wire techniques. It was this window of opportunity where we united to make what was always written in the stars. Black to signify our mothers maiden name and Sigi in homage to our late father’s nickname as a boy, the story begins here.
Starting with friends and family, we adorned who we could, and with that the business grew into the successful lifestyle brand that it is today. Collaboration and inspired partnerships is at the forefront of our designs and empowered message.
We source beautiful natural stones from all over the world. The wire work technique enables fluidity and uniqueness and with added natural stones which take on their own shape reinforces the idea that each piece that is created has its own story from start to finish.
We are stocked in independent boutique shops around Europe where we continue to seek likeminded partners to extend our little world of Black & Sigi to the masses. From our plated Immortal collection to the soon to launch luxury Enigma collection, you will find a design just right for you. Adding to our brand through collaboration only enhances the product range and we will only add what truly makes us feel good.
It is our mission to create handcrafted timeless pieces that evoke confidence and inspiration through the art of collaboration and emotive storytelling, so it is here that the next part of our journey starts. Jungo is a collaboration that started through the desire to create communities that work together and make each other stronger, supporting one another through our own creative journeys.
