Artisan Information

Catherine Offei Kwapong

Shop all Catherine Offei Kwapong products

My name is Catherine Offei Kwapong and I was born in Tema-Kpone in 1965.

I mastered how to style hair, create wedding décor, floral decoration and weaving wreaths. When I attended parties, I'd see women dressed up in beautiful beaded necklaces and I wondered how to create jewelry myself.

"I was fortunate to meet a teacher who was skilled in crafting beaded jewelry. I started with the basics and my teacher realized how quickly I learned. It took me about five months to master this craft. Then I began teaching other people and this helped me improve.

"I specialize in modern African beaded jewelry, and use bamboo, dried calabash gourd, clay and other materials. I sometimes have helpers when I have to create many designs. I choose people who are loyal, hard working and committed.

"I hope to help needy and poor children. My dream is to open a vocational school to teach beadwork and crafts to street children and orphans. For a while, I lived with my sister in Tema and learned a lot from the orphans there. I was able to teach the older ones to weave. It's been a privilege to help these children. They are very innocent, and caring for them has given me joy and peace."

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
