About The Author

Abeni, (Yoruba name meaning "we asked for her and behold, we got her") was given her name through West African traditional ceremony.  She has an eternal yearning and ability to create, which ultimately resulted in designing African inspired jewellery and utilizing nature's gifts from around the globe. Often times, supplies she finds are through her global travels. Each piece fascinatingly tells a story. She has an occupation as a behavioral health leader, holding a Master's of Science degree, is a writer, and finds jewellery design to be quite therapeautic. Within each art form, she wishes to share her talents, experiences and assessments of the world with the desire to inspire others to become well-informed, selectively enculturated and confident within their own talents and abilities.
