Founder & Designer 

An african and yoruba engineer turned into  a designer.

Inspired by her grandfather and her mother, Adebissi Adedjouma, launched I L E – I F E in 2021 as a line of contemporary and fashion heirloom jewelry to honor their culture.

60 years ago Adebissi's grandfather started a new life by creating his jewelry business where he designed his pieces himself, and had them made in Europe before selling them on the Local market in Cotonou - Benin. 20 years later, Adebissi's mum, joined the grandfather in this adventure. It was next to her mother that Adebissi's passion for jewelry was born.

With this background, coupled with the desire to continue a family and cultural traditions drives her willpower to create I L E - I F E.

With I L E - I F E she can combine her passion and her goal: reveal to the whole world the talent of African craftsmen.

 

Self-taught, she decided blend bold, armorial shapes with distinctive textures and african embellishments.

Adebissi finds inspiration in cultures, tactile memories, fine art, and organic element to create powerful statement pieces, both large and small.
