The Man Pearl, Nick ‘HONEY BADGER’ Cummins, The Trendsetter

I’ve been stepping out of my insta norm and the past 6mths following some cracker accounts. A lot of travel, we all know I love a great adventure! One guy I found, you may know him as the Aussie Honey Badger aka Nick Cummins, the bogan Bachie that’s having girls Australia wide frothing at the bit.

But I actually knew him from a National Geographic show. Yes, I’m a nature nerd and love a good doco or doco series. When the Honey Badger put the two together, I was sold on this Larikin!

Not only is he a bogan, I say that with love, I’m from the Gong (for those that don’t speak Australian or know our slang for towns in Australia, that’s Wollongong, South Coast of Australia), usually I’m the bogan in my friends but Nick takes the cake! Hats off to you!

So let’s just rewind a bit, Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, known for Rugby, that’s how the Good looking chap started, those golden locks running down the football field. He was actually pretty good! But let’s not give him a big head! He ended his career and went onto great things… The most epic adventure and gig in his own backyard of Australia 🇦🇺 with National Geographic. Meanwhile In Australia, is some incredible footage of Nick in towns, natural wonders and some crazy side jobs! A documentary series in which he travels around Australia gathering stories of people and places along the road. Oh, and He penned two books, Tales of The Honey Badger, and Adventures of The Honey Badger, which have both hit the Best Sellers list. He also has partnered with and appeared in advertising campaigns for a number of brands, including GoPro, Volkswagen, Tradie Underwear, The Iconic, Head & Shoulders and Iron Jack Beer.! Now He’s the Bachie, dating 25 Ladies at once on national tv, while every woman and maybe some men are on the edge of their chair waiting to see if he finds
Mrs Honey Badger.

In a bloody big nutshell, that’s Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins. Now back to what I was saying, I’ve been following some new fun and interesting peeps on the old IG, Nick being one.

While stalking his IG to see what epic shit he’s doing and adding new places in Australia to visit to my travel bucket list… I noticed something. Nick wears this leather bracelet with this round thing on it. Looks cool, but I can never get a good look at it. Is it a crystal? I know he’s a sensitive spiritual man, from what I gather, so maybe?! But seriously what’s on your wrist mate?!

I love and appreciate jewellery. Yes, Frau jewellery is my baby but I love and appreciate so many brands and I love to see what others are doing. It’s all positive over here and I love sharing brands I come across.

It got the better of me! I needed to know, I had questions and I needed answers. I’m not going to lie, I slide into his DMs. Trying to not look like a crazy asking about a bracelet, but I simply had to ask.

Little did I expect this…

Nick Honey Badger Cummins, the bloody Trendsetter!
You little ripper!


This surprised me! He sports a ‘man pearl’! I’m in love with this guy!! How can you not love a man for diving in and wearing a pearl? Mother Nature’s most beautiful jewels. Carefully crafted into a bead to be worn by a big burly man! ❤️

So where did it come from, Cygnet Bay Pearls!


Australia’s oldest cultured pearling business, the story of Cygnet Bay Pearls is steeped in history.  It is no surprise that Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm is Australia’s oldest continuously operating pearl farm.  It’s not only a great place to grow pearls, but also a beautiful place to visit. If you get the chance, you are invited to spend a night or two, and tour Australia’s only working pearl farm open to the public.  Situated 220kms north of Broome Western Australia, at the tip of the Dampier Peninsular.  It’s the beginning of the wild and free Kimberley coastline and the Buccaneer Archipelago.  The Kimberley marine environment has the world’s largest tropical tides and is both a beautiful and harsh environment.  Every wet season from December to April there is the threat of cyclones and all year round be conscious of the local crocodiles.  It was here at Cygnet bay that the story of the Australian South Sea Pearl began.

Every pearl they sell comes from the farm at Cygnet Bay.  You will receive a certificate stating your pearl’s origin, and grade, along with information about your pearl’s setting.

The precious gift of a Cygnet Bay Pearl is not only a pearl from an environmentally sound and sustainable process but also represents a piece of Australia’s pearling heritage.


How bloody amazing is that!
Why not go and have a magical experience and stay at the farm!

They offer a wide range of accommodation from camping and caravan sites to safari tents and Pearler’s shacks. Offering a great remote location to experience life on the Kimberley Coast in this pure historical environment.

The coastline is varied and interesting, changing with the tidal movements. Mangroves turn into tidal creeks and rocky points offering fresh oysters and great spots for fishing, small sandy beaches are the perfect beachcombing location and bush tracks offer great bird watching and secluded hideaways.
Don’t forget the Tours!
Sounds like bloody Heaven Mate!

Their IG also makes you want to go have an adventure.
