The YJ Story




Yana's Jewellery Shop in Sliema Malta
Yana Azzopardi, founder of Yana's Jewellery

Yana Azzopardi is a jewellery designer and founder of Yana’s Jewellery. Inspired by a family history in jewellery making and an unquenchable passion for jewellery, Yana has dedicated the last nine years to designing and making a wide range of elegant and handmade, statement or minimal necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings

What started off as a keen hobby, soon turned into the launching of her bespoke costume jewellery brand in 2010. Soon after, she was invited to exhibit her first collection in the trendy setting of Brick Lane, London, whilst, the exponential success of her new brand prompted her to take up her hobby full time by expanding her brand and opening her first shop in Msida in 2013 and second shop in Sliema in 2018.

Women of all ages are welcome to shop now or customise their own piece of jewellery that suits their mood, personality or dress and with an immense choice of beads and material, people definitely enjoy adapting and adding their own personal touches to their pieces.

Colores del Flamenco
Jewellery exhibition at Malta Fashion Week 2018
Yana’s Jewellery presents ‘Colores del Flamenco’, a new collection inspired by the colourful and flamboyant world of Spanish flamenco dancing.

‘Colores del Flamencos’ introduces carefully selected hand-sewn fabric beads, showcasing a variety of intricate patterns inspired by flamenco costumes and accessories. Each bead is delicately intertwined together using our signature wire-wrapping technique and transformed into a unique piece together with a range of new materials.

Flamenco inspires women to wear such bold and vibrant garments with pride and sophistication. It is this confident passion that this collection captures, and seeks to translate it into timeless cultured accessories.

Mystical Branches
Jewellery exhibition at Malta Fashion Week 2017
A collection inspired by Gustav Klimpt’s famous mural known as the Tree of Life.

Why the Tree of Life?
The Tree of Life and its meanings are known to stem from ancient mythologies. One of its meanings, symbolises a correlation between the Earth, life, the after world and the existence of every living being, connected through channels of energy.

This collection incorporates the use of eccentric rope designs which symbolise the tree's trunk and roots. We also used various wire wrapping techniques which stem from branch spirals. Branches can spiral upwards and tangle into each other, this natural form gave us the freedom to depict this detail in our work.

For this collection titled Mystical branches, we chose to select a portion of one of the Tree of Life’s messages: no matter how different we can be, we all belong in one universe. Mystical Branches invites you to reflect upon this symbol when choosing your piece, to feel the magical aura of universal uniqueness within.
