Edenki began quietly in 2016, creating pastel skulls and moons and striving to cross dark and celestial themes with cute pastel colours and iridescent *everything*.
If you wander through our creations you’ll see a lot of pop culture influences alongside flora and fauna, but ultimately Edenki is about celebrating contrast - a Venn diagram of different ideas and finding the area where they cross over and become something new.
Currently based in Melbourne, you can find Edenki in person at markets and pop culture conventions, keep an eye on the instagram for updates.
Hi there! My name is Eden, and I am the designer and maker behind Edenki.
Edenki is a made up word – a combination of my name and the first couple of letters of my middle name. I like that it is both a part of me, but not me at the same time. It ended up looking a bit Japanese, so I pronounce it that way in my head (eh-den-key); I don't mind how you pronounce it though!
I'm Australian but lived in Japan in 2018-19 - I went to study Japanese but I'm not very good at it! 日本語の文法は本当に難しいね！。。。でも、英語もそうですよね笑
I've always been fascinated by skulls and skeletons, the macabre, and supernatural things in general. When I was young all the skull stuff was in a really hardcore/death metal style, with lots of flames and snakes. I prefer to give them a twist and make them look beautiful, cute, or elegant. I love juxtaposition and how things that seem opposite can be blended together.
I started making jewellery as a hobby way back in 2007, buying components and putting them together in combinations that made me happy - skull cameos in ornate black metal or vibrant kawaii settings, things like that.
Increased access to digital fabrication tools (like laser cutters) made it possible for me to make my own components, and now here I am!
I LOVE making acrylic jewellery, and I love collecting and hoarding unique acrylics to use in my work.
I am so lucky that I get to make these special and intricate pieces for people who really love them! As a Maker, that's truly the ideal 💗
