    the Fish ‘cuff’ takes me to Lamu/ Tanga/ Bamburi Silver sands, (our beautiful coastlines/ beaches),

    I see the silver lean little fish..with happy rounded childhood legs resting in a new rock pool, darting in the mystifying multitude of color hues and perfect form.
    Your precession piece creates a jasmine scented, salted cheeks and chai laden coastal memory. A gift in of itself,

    I love the sexy snake cuff!

  9. Absolutely *ADORE* the bangles worn above the elbow. If I win the cuff, this is exactly what I’d do because my wrists are so tiny that bangles and cuffs tend to be too large. I heart the tribal quality of these chunky metal jewelry pieces!!

  10. I don’t know which one is my favorite. I love the wooden bracelet and the necklaces!

  11. Amazing

  12. I Love the wooden bangles! They look so nicely polished all at the same time giving some unique shape and perspective to how you would think of styling an outfit. I find it ingenious the way Adele Dejak infuses her African roots into the jewelry.
