A tomboy while growing up in Kenya, I didn't start developing an interest in fashion until my mid-twenties when I was living in San Francisco. That's when I realized that I couldn't find any jewelry celebrating the beauty of my homeland Africa in an authentic yet sophisticated way. While I loved living in America, and I'd traveled all over the world, there was a feeling of belonging that I didn't get anywhere but in Africa, a feeling shared by anyone who's ever been to Africa.
I knew there had to be others like me, people who believe in seeing more of the world – in making new connections, shifting their perspectives and experiencing new cultures at every opportunity. We create jewelry inspired by Africa's rich heritage for them, people who want to express where they've been and where they're going, people who want to experience belonging to the most diverse continent on earth.
Welcome to Africa, Welcome to Dalasini.
