About

 
Thank you for visiting Djoi Designs!  My name is Florence Smith, the creative spirit behind Djoi Designs; a handcrafted leather handbag and jewelry company. I created Djoi Designs as part of my "Second Act" 15 years ago. The name Djoi was derived from my son and daughter's names, Dee and Joi respectively.
The inspiration for my designs is drawn from fashion and the arts as well as a need for self expression. My goal is to create wearable art.
I am a self-taught maker. Each of the handbags are hand cut, hand punched, and hand stitched. The jewerly is made from Italian leather and components procured from around the world. My designs are unique, stylish, and one-of-a-kind; suited for women of all ages. Each piece is designed to compliment your individual style and is created with love.
