"The name Orese is a combination of "Ore" and "Ese" which both mean "gift" in Yoruba and Bini (Nigerian languages), respectively. Simply put, my creations are my gifts to you!" This is how Sase, the creator of Orese jewelries, introduces us to her work. And can I say, the description is very apt.M y birthday is coming up and I think I'd love nothing better than to have a couple of these jewelries gift wrapped for moi *wink wink*. Anyway, I simply love these adornments. These beauties are mostly made from materials like Ankara and brass.
The Ankara bangles and button earrings are fun, colorful, and sure to put a spicy Afrocentric spin on any outfit:
Her brass earrings, necklaces, and even a mix of both (like in the last photograph) are a joy to behold. They are simple and elaborate at the same time. It's obvious that a lot of thought, imagination and creativity went into their designs:
Sase is constantly doing something different in each project. I think to her, each creation is a 'discovery'. She plays around with shapes and concepts and I bet this process pushes her creative limits all the time. You really should check Orese out on Facebook and Twitter. Also, shop her gifts from Etsy or email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. Can you spot something common between my profile picture and her jewelry? hehe
