Handmade jewelry made & inspired in Zambia, Africa. A range of conservation inspired designs from Zambia's wildlife & beyond with 5% of every sale donated to Wildlife Conservation.
From a CONSERVATION background, an INSPIRATION for wildlife & an eye for DESIGN - here is where the story began.

The Elephant is a majestic and iconic creature that many strive to see when visiting the African continent.
It truly is a fascinating and emotional creature that I have tried to capture through this sub-collection of Wild Wild Silver.
This collection is inspired by the wildlife of Zambia. Showcasing silver & oxidized paw prints and patterns of zebras, elephants, buffalo & so much more. If you are a sucker for wildlife you'll want to check this out.
Maps & Travel
"When you visit Africa, it takes a piece of your soul". These pieces showing of the Zambia and Africa maps (and a few more) help those who have strayed from the continent to keep a piece with them.
Reloved & Repurposed Materials
Beyond Me Designs started off in my garage, corner of my room and anywhere I could find. It also started off with using any materials I could find - mostly old cutlery.
For ideas of the work I have done before with old cutlery and old bullet shells click below. You can get in touch if you would like to learn more or make an order.
Meet the Maker
My name is Shaina & I am the designer and creator of Beyond Me Designs. I am originally from Lusaka, Zambia but now am a Southern Province farm girl based on a farm in Choma, Zambia (about 5 hours from Lusaka). I studied Education for Sustainability & Environmental Education where I then did my research and worked in the beautiful Lower Zambezi National Park.
How did I end up designing & creating jewelry? Good question.
We support conservation
Zambia is known for its breathtaking national parks & incredible range of wildlife that call Zambia home. Unfortunately Zambia is also heavily affected by poaching, wildlife trafficking, deforestation and other threats that threaten the survival of species and the natural environment in which they live.
Beyond Me Designs currently supports both Musekese Conservation in the Kafue National Park & Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ) in the Lower Zambezi National Park. 5% of sales made through the website and our stockists are donated back to one of these organisations on the ground.
