Redefining Your Jewellery Essentials.
Flash Jewellery is a contemporary jewellery label for the modern woman, creating a series of easy-wearing and effortless styles with the desire to redefine your jewellery essentials.
~ Humble Beginnings ~
Based in Byron Bay, Australia and founded by Kiwi designer Nina Gordon, a metalworker-turned jewellery designer who began working with metal from a young age at her father’s car parts garage. Nina went onto study silversmithing and work within the metal-design industry and Flash organically evolved combining her interests in both, metal and design.
"Most don’t know, but the name ‘Flash’ is derived from the nickname given to me from friends and family. My surname is Gordon and ‘Flash Gordon’ became a running joke (yes, like the superhero!). From here on, the nickname Flash stuck. Years later when deciding to begin the label, this namesake was the obvious choice and Flash Jewellery was born. Flash is an extension of myself and I hope all pieces empower and connect with the wearer.

~ Our Jewellery & Values ~
Flash is consciously handcrafted by skilled artisans. Every detail is considered and we use only high-quality metals. We use brass and 925 sterling silver and plate our jewellery in a thick coat of 18k gold with a minimum thickness of 2.5 microns - thick according to industry standards. We also never use nickel in the plating process.
We work directly with a community of traditional artisans in India and every piece made, supports them, their families, and helps contribute to their collective. We pay in USD which ensures fair pay and all jewellery is made in safe, fair and clean working conditions.
Fresh brass is used for casting every time, leftover scrap is collected by the casting unit, it's melted & purified and resold to be reused.
In Australia and New Zealand.. Our byron bay studio/showroom is solar powered and we are minimising plastic. We have recently changed our packaging to be plastic free, made of cardboard and to exclude the plastic foam insert from our jewellery boxes, we have also added a vegan reusable travel pouch. We no longer use polythene courier bags & bubble wrap and we are continuously working to improve our practices.
