How long does the order process take?
A day to a week depends on the complexity.
Why jewellery making?
I will be the first to tell you I wasn't born with this but it was an interest I developed. I had a desire to do this and I went for it. I love stones, I just can't help it!
Do you have any formal training?
Well, I don't know if this passes for formal but I took a one day course to harness my skills but a lot of what I know comes from research I have done. I soak in a lot of information pretty quickly and that has come in extremely handy for me.
Do you train people interested in making jewellery?
Not yet. I hope to get there as there is still a lot of ground to cover.
How did you start?
From the very beginning! (Laughs)!
How has the market been for you?
Considering how new I am in this, I would dare say it has been pretty receptive although I am still working on my reach but I am grateful to God for what I have done so far!
What would you say the look is for Nov – Jan Brides?
Do not be scared to accessorize, lots of colours as well but do it right
What is your price range?
It really depends on the type of stones used but my pieces are chic and affordable.
What stones are expensive – which ones are not?
I believe every stone is a classic as they all have stories behind them and I treat them all as such but there are four stones whose reputation precede them and they are Diamonds, Emeralds, Sapphire and Ruby.

Ataome & Olatunji
Church Venue – Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception
Reception Venue – Four Seasons Hotel
Location – Atlanta , Georgia
What was your favorite part of the wedding?
How was the planning process for you?
Two words – WORRY FREE. I pretty much did not stress over the little things and did not turn into a BRIDEZILLA (my bridesmaids can attest to that). I knew what I wanted, stuck to my decisions and set out to find the best possible bargains. Also, our families were great, especially our parents who pretty much let us take the reins without interference. Finally and most importantly, it was hella fun.
If you could change anything, what would it be?
If you could add anything, what would it be?
My mom could not attend due to circumstances beyond our control and would have loved/killed to have her there you know.
Any advice for Brides-to-be?
