At Zuri Perle we hand make accessories that are a far cry from the stereotype accessories associated with the African continent. We hand make wearable art for clients who are looking to explore a different side of the African continent enamored with color, gemstones and precious metals.
Our Unique, Timeless, Couture Accessories which include Jewelry, Bags and Belts are handcrafted in our studio in Dallas, Texas.
Zuri Perle was established by Nigerian born designer Atinuke Adeleke. Atinuke Adeleke is an accessory designer with an undergraduate and masters degree in Law. She took her first jewelry making class from local artisans in Nigeria and fell in love with the process of handcrafting wearable artisan pieces. She has continued to build on that foundation by taking a variety of classes including metalsmithing and CAD classes at Kansas University. She is also an alumni of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and a member of the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG)
After moving to the United States to be with her husband, she was unable to find jewelry pieces to compliment the Nigerian traditional outfits she loves to wear. Major retailers did not carry the bold, colorful pieces similar to what she grew up wearing in her home country. She initially created the brand to cater to African brides and grooms looking for traditional African jewelry to wear for their traditional wedding here in the United States. She has since expanded the brand to incorporate a balance of her Nigerian traditional aesthetic and western experience, making the Zuri Perle accessory perfect for any occasion.
Fashion shows we've showcased our collections at include; New York Fashion Week - Flying Solo '20 and Kansas City Fashion Week '19 & "20. Our accessories have also been seen in Weekly Style Magazine, Fox 4KC, Say Yes to the Dress, CNN Africa, Bead Style Magazine (US) and a couple of local publications in her home country Nigeria.
Our mission is to continue providing our clients with accessories that they will proudly wear for years to come. We strive to exceed our client expectations in quality and service and we look forward to serving you.
