Gbenga Artsmith Releases its “Black Magic” Jewelry Collection.

Jewelry brand, Gbenga Artsmith, has uncovered its latest jewelry collection and we must say, the elegance and beauty the statement neck-pieces exude is unparalleled. This is coming after the brand’s successful debut at the recently held Glitz Africa fashion Week in Accra, Ghana.

Here is what the Creative Director of the jewelry line, Gbenga Ayo-Dada has to say;

“For this collection titled “Black Magic”, the inspiration was to create pieces to show the rich seam of African fashion through the use of Ankara print, intricate bead embellishment and corals against a backdrop of black costumes as black represents our peculiarity, power and beauty as a people. Through the ingenious pieces, the designer wanted to enrapture every beholder in the magical beauty intrinsic to our identity as Africans. The collection features body necklaces, flamboyant bib neckpieces, neck motifs, and exclusive coral necklaces.”

And here’s is an interesting trivia about this photo shoot: The model is not wearing any earrings, as a matter of fact, she has no earring hole but the pictures look so beautiful.

See the pieces from the collection below;

This collar neckpiece was inspired by the Maasai necklace which is synonymous to Kenyans and is typically beaded. But i chose to put a modern spin on it with the use of dazzling leather and infused Hausa influence in it (courtesy of the traditional hem stitching) and a Niger-Delta flair (via the gold-wrapped coral studs). The look was completed with this envelope clutch made from a mix of yellow croc skin, beige suede and burnt orange plain leather. Yes, we now make arm candies 😉. #NewCollection #BlackMagic #GbengaArtsmith #CollarNecklace #Jewelry #Fringe #Leather #Suede #CrocSkin #Makeup #Headwrap #Photography PHOTO CREDIT: Jewelry/Styling: @gbengaartsmith Makeup/Headwrap: @bolams Photography: @francislens Kaftan: @hadassahclothings Model: @cynthia_diko
