About

Leonardo da Vinci once said, "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." I embody that sentiment here at Veraidagifts, where I create and sell handcrafted jewelry that is feminine, yet strong. Elegant, yet understated. Modern, yet timelessly beautiful.

Welcome to my store VERAIDAGIFTS. Here you will find a huge collection of jewelry for every taste and budget. My business is the perfect fusion of creativity and art, and the memorable jewelry I make is the result of fruitful searches, a labor of love, and the inspiration I am surrounded by each and every day. Born and raised in Europe, I started making necklaces and rings using beads from old jewelry and stringing them on colorful cords that my father had laying around. I was just seven at the time and my desire to make special, one of a kind jewelry pieces continues to be my passion. I am constantly inspired by nature, the sky and beach, the people around me, and the words I read in the pages of books.

Searching through stores for stones and beads provides me with great pleasure and inspiration in my work. Sometimes the stones speak to me and it is like love at first sight – I instantly think of a design and know exactly what the end result will be. Other stones come home with me but need to wait awhile for the perfect mate or design spark. I love the different colors and shapes of stones; just like people, each have their own history, personality, and unique story. Some designs result in simple, elegant pieces showcasing raw beauty, while other designs are more of a statement, combining beautiful colors. Each one is beautiful in their own way.

I opened my Etsy store in 2010 after wearing my designs and having people continually inquire about purchasing my jewelry. Since then, I have sold affordable and attainable pieces that make the world more beautiful, empower women with confidence, and bring joy. Whether it is a husband purchasing a gift for his wife, a daughter receiving a special piece from her mom, or a bride gifting her bridesmaids, each piece is made with love. My wish is for that positive energy to resonate each time someone wears my handcrafted jewelry. Based in Los Angeles, I sell my jewelry around the world. Being a part of the creative community is empowering and I have enjoyed sharing my artistries with the Etsy Artisan Group, participating in stylist gifting for hit prime time television shows, and donating to local art programs and domestic violence centers.

When I am not crafting countless jewelry designs, working as a registered nurse with newborns and moms, or spending time with my family, I love kundalini yoga, meditating,hiking trails, visiting the beach, spending time with friends (furry ones included), cooking a new recipe, baking up bites, drawing, knitting, and crocheting.

I am just doing my part to make the world more beautiful. One piece at a time.
