The Jebena Necklace gets its name from the lovely fluted coffee pot used in traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremonies. Coffee is an integral part of Ethiopian culture and the coffee ceremony is considered to be the most important of social occasions. It is not only considered to be a sign of respect and friendship to be invited to one of these ceremonies, but drinking the coffee is also considered to be a spiritual journey.
The Jebena Necklace features a beautifully textured brass fluted collar that slides freely on a sterling silver chain. Necklace comes on an 18” chain.

The Great Rift Valley is a geological trench that runs north to south from Northern Syria through East Africa. In Africa, the terrain along the trench varies from salt flats below sea-level to snow capped mountains towering into the clouds. It is said to be one of the most significant formations on the planet that is visible from space.
As the Great Rift Valley cuts through the heart of Ethiopia, the namesake of the collection, Rift, seems incredibly fitting. Rift also means a fissure, fracture or crack in something. As this collection came together, many memories from our travels in Ethiopia were characterized by ‘rifts’; the difficulty of travel, the poverty, the environmental degradation. However difficult those cracks were to digest, they happened to be the very source of the beauty, authenticity, and magic of the country.
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in."
