Yetunde Safurah Salimon, the personality behind this blog, is also the CEO of BeAdorned! by Yettie. Yetunde didn’t learn accessories making from anybody. Initially, it was fashion designing/tailoring she learnt during ASUU strike in 2013 and from there, her passion for jewelry making came alive, with the large collection of the pieces of beautiful Ankara pieces that she picked from her boss’ shop and couldn’t stand trashing them. This brought forth the ideas of making jewelry pieces and other beautiful things with them in her mind. It all started from there. Also, with some assistance from the internet where gets lots of inspirations from, making her to recreate her own pieces thereby infusing her own touch and effect to make a statement.
Creating things is just an inborn passion and talent which she has been showcasing since childhood. She creates and makes lots of incredible things when she was young. Like making slippers out of empty cartons of newly bought electronics items that were meant to be disposed of, making doll houses, paper crafts. origami artworks, drawings and paintings and the likes.
Her major inspiration is Africa as a whole, the ethnicity and tribalism of Africa, the African culture, the African fashion and everything about Africa!
