Celia Jayi was set up in 2017 by Cecilia Ajayi, a 2012 Textiles Graduate from Brighton University, who currently resides in Essex with her husband and son. 

Cecilia grew up in London and due to her love of art and all things craft, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in textiles! So she took the plunge and decided to make the move to Brighton and gain a degree in textiles.

Despite specialising in knitwear design at Brighton University Cecilia knew her true calling was embroidery. Her love of creating beautiful three dimensional pieces, experimenting with different materials grew whilst studying. She soon realised her passion for colour play and abstract shapes.

In her shop you will find intricately hand crafted beaded pieces. Each piece utilising hundreds of beads tirelessly sewn unto the canvas in various shades that result in a vision of colour and abstract form. Each piece timeless and one of a kind.
