Creating beauties with a smaller carbon footprint

Read More

This whole thing started a decade ago with a custom jewelry gift.

In 2010, my mom brought a small jewelry box with her on her way back from Zimbabwe. The box was made from recycled paper with a hint of dried flower petals, tied together with a pink satin ribbon. I expected to see a set of gems inside sitting on a gold or silver frame, but upon opening it, there were three custom cut stones, two dangling from a pair of earrings, and one hanging on a necklace.

The stones didn’t match each other, but they were beautiful because they were different and one of a kind.

Hello, I’m Stephanie Kabi.

I’m an artist by heart, and my talents lie in my hands. I create all the jewelry from a studio next to my home, nestled in the green farms of Kiambu, Kenya.

Darsamin means “Beautiful & valuable” in the Middle East. My obsession for custom jewelry started from a sentimental stone jewelry gift, and this has changed into the business that you see today.

This dream came together thanks to

Lawrence Mutharia & Nelly Ng’ethe → The dream enablers

Stacy Muthoni → The architectural designer

Eliud Gatheca, Elifurni Furniture → The builder

Creative Consillium → The beginning of my creative journey

Zia Bett → My mentor
