Devi Arts Collective

ABOUT THE BRAND

Devi Arts Collective is a women-led jewelry brand born out of the inner-desire and willful purpose to connect with people. We create accessories that when worn, are an expression of the bold, the confidant, and the vibrant qualities in our truest selves.

We represent the femme who is searching for something unique, grounded by nature, and inspired by the world. She thrives from the rush of spontaneity, the spark of a human connection, and although she’s adventurous, her lifestyle is led by an ethical conscious that she adheres to as her personal responsibility.

Through high quality craftsmanship our products are created by sourcing recycled and refined silver and gold, and ethical gemstones. We are committed to making a positive difference on our planet through every human we interact with, every material we use, and our sustainable values that anchor the foundation of our brand and bring Devi Arts Collective to life! 

MEET THE FOUNDER

Bayoush had a dream, and with Devi Arts Collective her dream has been vivaciously brought to life! 

She wanted to own her beauty and confidence, while shifting the perspective that responsibly made jewelry can also be accessible and affordable. She’s passionate about empowering women, lifting women up, and giving women a voice and the confidence they need to not only succeed, but thrive as they build upon their skills and pursue their inner passions. Through the responsible operations of Devi Arts Collective, her dedication to mentorship, and the heartwork that goes into each piece, she wants her jewelry to become a statement that allows the human wearing it to confidently express who they really are without having to say a word.

Bayoush has spent the last 20 years travelling the world being endlessly inspired by the beauty in everything! From the connection created in a simple conversation to her abstract interpretations of the patterns in nature  to the texture on a door frame to the pattern on the floor, she is constantly absorbing every detail around her and using these moments to influence her creative process.

Many of her pieces pay homage to her proud Ethiopian background and the strength in her family heritage, while representing her ornate interpretation of the world and simple moments that show up in each piece she creates. She designs her jewelry to reflect function and form, while being strong, unique accessories that can enhance your every day.

MATERIAL SOURCING

We are solely committed to transparency and being mindful of our wearing environment. From our printed invoices, to our packaging and even the raw materials we use in our jewelry - including recycled silver and gold and 14kt gold-fill - every detail is created and sourced responsibly, ethically, and sustainably.

MANUFACTURING

All of our jewelry, from concept to design, is produced by hand with recycled and refined gold and silver in our Vancouver studio and our gems are cut by our extended family in Jaipur, India. Every piece is created unique with a strength in quality and fine delicate details - it’s perfectly imperfect, which to us is the beauty in the handmade process.

PHILANTHROPY

In 2020 Devi Arts Collective introduced a mentorship program for young BIPOC girls interested in the fashion or jewelry industry.

10% of all Devi Arts Collective proceeds go to Justice for Girls and/or Atira Women’s Resource Society.
