Hypo-Allergenic, handcrafted, statement earrings made with glass seed beads


The Artist

Oh hi there, I'm Court the maker behind Hey Habibi.  I'm honored to create pieces that you will treasure and enjoy. Jewelry making and bead collecting has always been a passion of mine and continues to evolve the more I learn.  My work allows me to explore my fascinations on a deeper level by reconnecting and celebrating my Syrian, Hungarian, and Sephardic roots while exploring folk patterns and symbols my ancestors would have incorporated into their art. Traditional elements are often embedded in my pieces and influence several design choices.  Hand-crafting is my love language, and my creations are not only my love letter to the you, but also to my late Syrian grandparents, who called me “Habibi” (an Arabic word meaning “my love”).  I live in Portland, Oregon on Clackamas & Cowlitz land with my partner and puppy dog.  When I'm not beading I'm studying to become a full spectrum doula and volunteering with the local non-profit Cascade Abortion Support Collective (CASC).

The Jewelry

Hey Habibi uses hypo-allergenic materials that are lead-free, nickel-free & cadmium-free.  All standard earring hooks & clip-on options are made of high quality copper & plated with either Sterling Silver, Rose Gold, or 14k solid Gold.  I love to design with elements I find interesting.  Using bold lines, angular shapes, and geometry...I create modern jewelry. Every single piece is made to standout and  uplift you while you're wearing them. Whether it's a pastel/floral pair or some louder pieces inspired by the colorful fashions of the 1960s-80s, I love challenging myself creatively.  Each earring is woven together, one bead at a time. It takes upwards of 8+ hours to weave together the hundreds (sometimes thousands) of beads that make a pair.  Every piece I create is one-of-a-kind.
