Collane Di Betta Elisabetta Capolino is the founder and creative director of Le Collane Di Betta a Kenyan jewellery design company.
Coming from a proud lineage of Italian jewellers she was destined for design and her architectural training early in life only added to this. Her pieces are “built” from the ground up using an architectural appreciation of shape, form, space and symmetry, but always with an overlay of wearability.
The Le Collane Di Betta Kenyan jewellery pieces are hand-made in Kenya by Elisabetta and her team of skilled artisan-craftsmen. The materials are locally sourced and/or recycled where possible with the addition of key elements from Europe. Elisabetta works with women’s cooperatives and under-privileged workers where possible in the construction of her pieces and the sourcing of materials.
The beautiful Kenyan jewellery pieces from Collane Di Betta are displayed through Africa and Europe, and sold all over the world. Due to their striking look, pieces are often featured in runway events and fashion magazines, such as Elle, Harpers & Queen, Vogue and Marie Clare.
