Santeria otherwise known as Lukumi is a belief system which originated in Nigeria and was brought to the new worlds through the African Slave trade and the diaspora. Beaded necklaces are commonly used in the practice of this faith, but Oni Ache Creations has brought a new look by combining artistic beauty and fashion with the traditional beading. "Our creations are not meant to take the place of the traditional necklaces" says the owner and designer," they are a way to make a striking fashion statement with meaning behind what you are wearing." As these pieces often attract conversation, this promotes an opening to create awareness among people who would not otherwise know about these beliefs. All of the jewelry is inspired by the different Orishas (gods and goddesses of these traditions) and hold different energies depending on the inspiration behind the piece. Whether you are looking for love and prosperity, strength and passion, peace and tranquility, fertility, or new opportunities, Oni Ache Creations has an adornment for you.
These creations to adorn the goddess within can be found at www.orishajewelry.etsy.com.
This is a company that strives to build bridges between different practices and branches of this faith, to open the minds, and in turn, open the eyes of the world to the beauty of the orishas.
