Bellabisinia's Shop Announcement

~Welcome to all things Beautiful from Ethiopia! ~

Bella Abisinia means “Beautiful Ethiopia”

Though Jewelry making began as an "accidental love" while studying fashion Design & merchandising in San Francisco,California, it grew into a unique and compelling "passion" to give birth to Bella Abisinia Design.

Bella Abisinia is one of a kind creation focusing on handmade design. Both jewelry and accessories are a result of combining old Ethiopian technique of beadwork, Metal smithing & hand loom machine weaving by infusing recycled materials and focusing on handmade craftsmanship.

For all woven items ,I use Ethiopian twice combed cotton, organic cotton as well as wool & Silk. Most jewelry is designed with Sterling silver as well as recycled Maria Teresa Silver Coin. Often stones are locally found in all four corners of Ethiopia & also sources from various countries around the world.

Bella Abisinia Design promotes the creation of sustainable and handmade work by rebirthing the disappearing craftsmanship of Ethiopia by infusing it with modern fashion.
I want my creation to be both an artful adornment as well as an everyday accessory.

***It is with great pleasure that I would like to say that I am thankful to have my mentor BONSE who is a 3rd generation weaver who has been my mentor and the force behind the weaving machine who helps me not only create but improve my skill every day.

***My cotton spinner and fringe twister Ejegayehu is the most humble and Great person who not only jumps in when I need extra help but she is also the real responsible person who hand twists each finished woven item carefully.

**** I can not go without thanking my lovely husband Goshu, who is involved with taking part in putting some ideas or coming up with color combination. He is also the one who tracks down each and every item and handles the accounts.

**** In short, bellabisinia is the work of great minds who love craft and Handmade products.

I enjoy taking special order/s for any occasion as it allows me to create something sentimental with great care, passion and attention to detail.
