[ atabey story ]

 

A handcrafted experience.

In an age where everyone is obsessed with going fast, we take time to handcraft a perfect piece.

 

 “Atabey” comes from the Taino mythology. Tainos were the Indians who populated the Greater Antilles before Christopher Columbus’ discovery in 1492. In the Taino mythology, “Atabey” was the mother of the supreme, “respected mother”. She was of exceptional beauty and taught the men the magical mysteries of the gods.

 

A few years ago, and after a long struggle to find her true passion, local jewelry designer, Zeli Diaz, decided to dedicate her time to the creation of beautiful, unique, handcrafted jewelry. That was the moment jewelry by atabey was born. Zeli believes that every woman is unique and that every piece of jewelry that a woman wears should reflect whom she is inside.
