The Workshop of Eiyelé Fún Fún
El Taller de la Eiyelé Fún Fún
 

Eiyelé Fún Fún makes jewelry with select materials—seed beads and stones—imported predominantly from the Czech Republic. Our point of departure is the Afro-Cuban tradition of beadwork. Orisha, Ifá, and Palo Monte. In the hands of Eiyelé Fún Fún, particularly in the Palo Monte sphere, beadwork becomes a multimedia production, with the addition of natural, spiritually-imbued materials. As important, Eiyelé Fún Fún also produces dazzling contemporary fashion jewelry of saturated colors and startling contrasts done with the best materials and findings.

Eiyelé Fún Fún makes jewelry with select materials—seed beads and stones—imported predominantly from the Czech Republic. This region was blessed with the natural resource of Moldavite Crystals, formed over thousands of years, which permitted the production of the highest qualtity beads and stones for many years. Eiyelé Fún Fún uses the highest quality materials from this and other regions. Our clients are, therefore, privileged to encounter a large variety of stones. The gemstones include: red corals, African Opal, African Turquoise, Botswana Agate, Natural Amethyst, Dragon’s Blood, Tiger Eyes, Lapis Lazuli, Jaspers, Pink Opal, Paua Shells, Mother of Pearl, Natural Pearls, Volcanic Cherry Quartz, Sardonix, Rose Quartz, Malachite, Jet, and Moonstones.

Our point of departure is the Afro-Cuban tradition of beadwork. Orisha, Ifá, and Palo Monte.

Eiyelé Fún Fún uses its mastery of woodwork to include red and black African ebony and African black. As important, Eiyelé Fún Fún also produces dazzling contemporary fashion jewelry of saturated colors and startling contrasts done with the best materials and findings.
