Announcement   Kodes are hand painted geometric wooden accessories and baby friendly silicone necklaces. They are hand made in Tottenham, North London.
Kodes are bold, colourful, chunky and yet lightweight, the perfect statement jewellery.
The silicone necklaces are for mums to wear while still looking stylish and perfect and safe for babies to chew on to relieve teething pains or to fidget with while nursing.

I started making jewellery to fulfil my need for something a bit quirkier for myself, based around the colour Yellow Mustard. I bought all the materials and when I started wearing the necklace I made for myself I started getting lots of compliments and my friends encouraged me to start making some to sell to the public.

After two years I had a baby and suddenly I found myself in need for a necklace he could play with and chew without breaking it or damaging it. So I started making the silicone necklaces which have proved the perfect accessory while on maternity, keeping Freddie busy when bored or soothed when teething ferociously.

About

African Fabrics & Kodes

I am a Web Developer by day who started with no crafts skills whatsoever, but then I fell in love with African fabrics!
I found myself wanting a particular necklace for myself in my favourite colour, mustard. I made one and it all took off from there, around November/December 2014. I started to shop around for beads and experiment with the first few necklaces.
I go shopping for African fabrics in the busy and colourful Brixton Village Market in London.
Brixton is packed with African shops that sell gorgeous wax cotton fabrics. Going to these stores for me is like being in a candy shop for kids, although sometimes it's hard to capture the fabric pattern on a necklace, but I try to pick the brightest fabrics, with interesting patterns.
Being a Web Developer by day, I write code every day, so when it came to choosing a name for my necklaces, I thought that the word "Kode" sounded not only very similar to "code", but also quite African sounding (to me at least of course!) and that it could represent my alter ego, the crafty side of me, my crafty "code".
I hope you will enjoy my accessories and join me on my journey, through headbands, dog bandanas, shopper tote bags and many more to come!

    I am a Web Developer who has never had any interest in craft or hand made stuff, until I fell in love with African Fabrics and decided I wanted to make a necklace for myself, after finding out on the internet it seemed very easy. And here I am!
