Q&A with RaiyCrafts

What is your craft all about?
What inspires you to make what you make?
We're three Ethiopian females who love making jewelry while talking about everything and anything.We usually use traditional pieces from Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal and other African countries to make the kind of earrings and necklaces we like to wear. We make it a point to buy most of our material at fair prices from artisans in Africa. We've been making jewelry for 6 years, selling our work at music shows, craft shows, local flea markets and at our friend's coffee shop.

What is your favorite piece/product you will have with you at the Handmade Mart?
Our new favorite piece is a beautiful bronze necklace with a metal disc pendant, bronze plated filler beads and bright red beads.

Where can folks find your craft outside the Handmade Mart?
We have a permanent display of our jewelry and other items at: Sankofa Cafe 2714 Georgia Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20001. Online at

Find me at booth #29!
