Okra was born in Mauritius near the sea while the birds were chirping summer songs.

Julie Pang, designer and founder of Okra, spends her days playing with beads and all sorts of natural elements such as coconut shell, crystals from Madagascar, sea urchin from Mauritius and Philippines, corals, wood, ceramic, and anything natural and durable.

Okra pieces have an organic feel, perfect for summer with pops of turquoise beads here and there. The inspiration comes from the sea, the birds, undoubtedly strange beautiful insects and dragonfly wings. Feathers are soon to be introduced in her new collection!
