Eunice's business started in the United Kingdom in 2016, while her brand Meitam London was founded in 2018. The name Meitam is derived from the founder's Nigerian name “Meitamunopiri”, which means “Doing it for God”. The vision is to uplift and encourage people through creativity. Each piece of work is unique and has an underlying message that is forged as part of the creative process.
Meitam deals in one-off handcrafted rare pieces that are produced using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. The inspiration behind the creations is influenced by spirituality, culture, nature, and textures.
About the Founder
Eunice Bossman-Okai resides in London, UK, and is married with three children and one grandchild. Eunice returned to university to study jewellery and pursue her love of creativity. She achieved a BA in Jewellery and Accessories from Middlesex University. She was born in London and relocated to Nigeria with her family when she was nine years old and returned to London in 1995.
Her culture plays a big part in work.
“I love the philosophy of experimenting and this has led me to work with materials based on natural resources primarily from Africa.”
Her love for experimentation has inspired her to expand her creativity beyond jewellery and use a variety of media; she produces art and jewellery that are distinctively detailed, original, timeless, and classic.
Eunice loves interacting with people and sharing her knowledge about the raw materials she works with. She is grateful for the opportunity to bring them into her space of creativity, spirituality, culture, and tradition.
