My business started in the United Kingdom in 2016, and my brand, Meitam London, was founded in 2018. The name Meitam is derived from my 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 rare one-off handcrafted 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

I was born in London, UK, and relocated to Nigeria with my family when I was nine years old and returned to London in 1995. I now reside in London, and I am married with three children and one grandchild. I returned to university to study jewellery and pursue my love of creativity. I completed my Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, then went on to achieve a BA in Jewellery and Accessories from Middlesex University.

My culture plays a big part in my work.

“I love the philosophy of experimenting and this has led me to work with materials based on natural resources primarily from Africa.”

My love for experimentation has inspired me to expand my creativity beyond jewellery and I use a variety of media; I produce art and jewellery that are distinctively detailed, original, timeless and classic.

I love interacting with people and sharing my knowledge about the raw materials I work with. I am grateful for the opportunity to bring them into my space of creativity, spirituality, culture and tradition.
