Asiatik Wares: Who, What, and Why?
Hey! My name is Roni (Ronnie) and I love making jewelry. Making jewelry started out as a fun hobby and a way for me to have earrings that I could never find in a store. I love the idea of having a piece of jewelry that no one else has.
As a NYC born and bred child of the 70s & 80s, I grew up on conscious rap. I'm a dirty backpacker (Google it) at heart, so I've always been drawn to an Afrocentric, bohemian style of jewelry. Fast forward a lifetime to 2009 and the idea of turning this hobby into a business was born. It wasn't until 2017 when the name Asiatik Wares was created and the dream was actually brought to life.
The term Asiatic is of or related to the region of K'met (Egypt) or the greater so-called Middle East which is Northern Africa.
ASIATIK WARES is an allusion to the Afrocentric sensibility represented in both the lifestyle, clothing and jewelry lines of the brand. It is my goal with Asiatik Wares to become your one-stop-shop for all your cultural needs.
