Hecho en Harlem
Hecho en Harlem Jewelry was founded in 2015 by Ifétayo Abdus-Salam (Ifé) who designs and crafts each piece by hand in her Harlem studio. Jewelry making has been a lifelong process for Ifé, who began her design career making beaded jewelry as a young girl.
After an 11-year career as an community based arts educator and Visual Arts Teacher, the pull of creative practice has brought Ifé back to the jewelry bench. Hecho en Harlem was born from the vision of a beauty that is bold, unique and elegant, just like the women she is surrounded and inspired by.
