YACreates is a UK based jewellery, accessories and gifts brand by British born Nigerian, Yejide Adeoye.
A life changing trip to South Africa in 2007, was the catalyst to Yejide’s creative journey. During the trip Yejide visited many bead stores and picked up the techniques and skills to start making her own jewellery. Like a kid in a candy store, Yejide was fascinated by the wide variety of colours, shapes, textures and sizes, and picked up an assortment of beads to bring back home.
On returning to the UK, Yejide continued making beaded jewellery for friends and family. She discovered her flair for creating unique one-off pieces and started selling at events and markets such as the Backyard market, Brick Lane.
In 2009 Yejide created an Angel design following one of many tragic losses that embodied her belief in Angels as divine guardians and protectors. With the launch of the Angels came regular requests to customise the pieces for christenings and other occasions leading to Yejide purchasing a laser machine.
YACreates combines laser technology and crafting skills to create a range of accessories, gifts, jewellery, homeware and puzzles.
