Hey there, lovely souls! I'm Court, the artist behind Hey Habibi. It's an absolute honor to craft pieces that will hold a special place in your heart. Jewelry making and the art of bead collecting have been my passions for as long as I can remember. With every passing day, they evolve as I delve deeper into the realm of creativity.
My artistic journey serves as a conduit for exploring my deepest fascinations, and a means of reconnecting with and celebrating my Syrian, Hungarian, and Sephardic roots. By immersing myself in the exploration of folk patterns and symbols reminiscent of my ancestors' artistic expressions, I find myself seamlessly infusing traditional elements into my creations-- shaping my design choices. For me, hand-crafting is not just a skill, but a language of love. Each piece I create is not only a love letter to you but also a heartfelt tribute to my late Syrian grandparents, who affectionately called me "Habibi" - an endearing Arabic term meaning "my love."
Nestled in the vibrant city of Portland, Oregon, on the ancestral lands of Clackamas and Cowlitz, I share my life with my partner and our adorable puppy. When I'm not intricately beading, you'll find me pursuing studies to become a full spectrum doula and dedicating my time to volunteering with the local non-profit organization, Cascade Abortion Support Collective (CASC).
Thank you for supporting this humble small business venture, as every purchase directly contributes to my creative journey and growth.
Hey Habibi takes pride in utilizing hypo-allergenic materials that are free from lead, nickel, and cadmium. All our standard earring hooks and clip-on options are crafted from high-quality copper and exquisitely plated with Sterling Silver, Rose Gold, or 14k solid Gold.
My designs are an embodiment of intriguing elements that catch my eye. With a flair for bold lines, angular shapes, and geometry, I passionately sculpt modern jewelry pieces. Each creation is meticulously crafted to make a statement and uplift you while adorning them. Whether it's a pair infused with pastel hues and delicate floral motifs or bolder pieces inspired by the vivacious fashion trends of the 1960s-80s, I eagerly embrace the challenge of pushing my creative boundaries.
Every single earring comes to life as I intricately weave together each bead, one at a time.
The process is a labor of love, often spanning over 8+ hours, as hundreds, if not thousands, of beads harmoniously intertwine to form a pair. The result is an exquisite, one-of-a-kind masterpiece that is as unique as you are.
Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey, and I'm genuinely grateful for your support. Together, let's celebrate creativity, individuality, and the beauty of handmade artistry.
