Every month at Lionesses of Africa, we showcase the passionate women entrepreneurs who are making a real impact through their businesses, their innovation, their products, services and craftsmanship, in a particular business sector in Africa and the Diaspora. This month (May), we are turning our attention to the incredibly creative women jewellery designers who are turning precious metals, gems and semi-precious stones into beautiful decorative pieces for the world to wear. They are putting the continent on the global map through their uniquely African-inspired jewellery designs and technical brilliance.
All this month at Lionesses of Africa, we are featuring and paying tribute to some of the most creative jewellery designers on the continent and the Diaspora whose unique sense of style and passion we love. They are both inspirational and practically making such a difference to the jewellery design landscape on the African continent and around the world. Some are names you may already know and their creations you may be wearing right now - others may be new to you, but their work speaks volumes and is really exciting - these are the Women Jewellery Designers to watch.
Here are just some of the African Women Jewellery Designers who are inspiring us this month, not simply for the work they produce, but in many instances because of the difference they are making on the African continent to the lives of other makers and crafters. Watch out for our daily feature articles all this month as part of our special focus on jewellery and accessory design in Africa.
At Lionesses of Africa, we also encourage everyone visiting our website and social media platforms to nominate those women jewellery designers in Africa and the Diaspora who inspire them, and we will happily profile them this month.

Our month-long Focus on Women Jewellery Designers is all about showcasing the best and most inspirational women working and building businesses and brands in the field of jewellery design on the African continent and in the Diaspora, so be part of the process and make a difference to a woman jewellery designer that inspires you.
