Jewellery from Tropical Jewels Fiji is bold, fun and funky and coming to the Pasifika Business Market in March.
It’s jewellery that makes a statement that says, “Look at me!”
The pieces are the creations of Losalini Kaisau Manufolau who set up her business in 2010.
By day, she works for the Justice Department in Fiji. But her passion glows in her jewellery.
Ms Manufolau came to Pacific Trade Invest (PTI) NZ’s attention after attending a PTI Path to Market workshop in Fiji.
It’s her first time attending a big festival and says the trip to attend Pasifika Festival in Auckland in March will help her gain more knowledge about new trends and the New Zealand market.
“I am convinced that I would gain more knowledge through this trip,” she said.
“We feel blessed to be given the opportunity to be part of this festival where we join other neighbouring Pacific countries in promoting art and supporting home grown businesses,” Ms Manufolau said.
Ms Manufolau said attending the Path to Market workshops had helped her immensely.
“The workshops have given me so much knowledge. To interact with others and glean from their experiences,” Ms Manufolau said.
But she has learnt much from business owners in other industries because aside from her jewellery creations she has a strong interest in organic farming.
“I have learnt a lot from the other farmers as well, having recently acquired a 36-acre farm which I desire to pursue organic farming,” Ms Manufolau said.
“PTI NZ Path to Market has blessed us with the basic know how that will help and has helped us better our presentations and service, elevated us to a whole new better level that i know will benefit us immensely in the near future.”
