I am a multifaceted maven with jewelry artisan/designer on the marquee. I am self taught and have attended a few professional workshops along the way.
I love working with metals and recycled wood chips, especially healing copper, and other recycled materials; which I use whenever possible since I am a loyal supporter of Mother nature and do whatever I can to help save the planet.
Prior to becoming a jewelry artisan/designer I worked professionally as a microbiologist at the Faculty of Medicine in my homeland of Mozambique.
Dabanga through Dabanga Jewelry supports many fundraising efforts, especially those linked to Autism and female empowerment.
My work is an eclectic fusion of world cultures that goes back in time to connect the past to the present, transforming wood, metal, pearls, turquoise, coral and recycled material into jewelry designs so raw and real you can feel their earthy vibrations.
The metals are patinated to give an ancient look, the color and pattern variations are characteristics of this process, the complimentary embellishments are especially chosen to complete this look.
I design for those of you that like unique and colorful jewelry and accessories, and have your own individual sense of style… are you one of those people? If so you’ve come to the right place and I’m happy to make the connection.
