Gallery: Unique earrings capture the market

Hannah Yeboah, the young girl who makes pottery earrings

Hannah Yeboah (24) has started her own business called Potter’s Hand by making the most beautiful earrings by hand. She specialises in small batches of lightweight earrings with each piece being unique.

She works together with her team, and said, “Our style is a perfect blend of simple, modern and abstract that caters to a variety of tastes and styles. We pride ourselves in creating effortless feminine pieces with unique colourways that leave a lasting impression, bringing out the confidence in you.”

Yeboah told Bloemfontein Courant that she came upon the idea during the pandemic when she took time to read the book of Proverbs and learnt the importance of using one’s gifts. She prayed to God to help her find her purpose and during this time learnt it was possible to make earrings at home. So she took the idea and ran with it.

“I make the earrings myself and I enjoy every step of it. One pair would probably take 30 minutes or less, but I usually make about four pairs in one sitting and that would take 2 hours or so.”

She knew nothing about jewellery-making until she started this year. “I did my research and I knew I was capable. I have plans to expand my business. I have been approached by a couple of stores to stock up my products, however, my plan is to add different products to my online store and increase my social media presence,” she added.

Yeboah has an online store and the link is in the bio section of all her and her social media team’s pages (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) @The Potter’s Hand. “We also take orders over WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger for people who are not phone savvy. All our prices are on our website.”
