“I created empress because I wanted the ladies to feel included, I have noticed that through all my sales majority of my clients are male and when a female makes a purchase it is rather a gift to their boyfriend,” she explained.
She briefly described the new handmade line as a Namibian earring collection that has been inspired by royalty, African queens, Namibian and African Map and the Oshiwambo traditional attire named ‘Odelela’.
“I did research on African queens like Egypt Nefertiti and Queen Nandi and imagined what earrings they would have worn. At the time I didn’t have a name until one of my instagram followers randomly commented on one of my pictures saying Empress and that is when I decided to name it that,” she said.

Although she mentioned that the new collection was well received by the general public she said it wasn’t a walk in the park getting the earrings done on time.
“I remember having a breakdown while creating the pieces because nothing was coming together as I expected. I had to reevaluate everything and start from scratch, but all in all, I am happy with how they turned out.
House of Nalo caters for all age groups and a number of artists have been spotted on various occasions wearing accessories from her collection. The likes of KP Illest, Dj Ambizzy, Paul Da Prince and many others.

Questioned on when the next collection will come out, she said she is still marinating the current ones and would not want to shoot herself in the foot through introducing brand new products while still marketing the current ones.
“The current orders are already driving me crazy, I cannot jump on the next one. I mean, i just launched yesterday,” she said.
