About

My name is Shawna, born in '77. I live with my amazing fiance, 3 beloved rescued mutts, 1 crazy cat and a handful of chickens in the beautiful desert of Mojave,CA. I lived in Los Angeles my entire life but I have finally made it out of the city just on the outskirts, where my closest neighbor is a horse and the mountains are breathtaking daily inspiration. I studied illustration and fine art in college, but I learned 'what I do' on my own time, and lend anything I create mostly to passion, channeling past lives and connecting to the source field. ;)
I find inspiration in anything extravagant or antique, namely East Indian, Victorian and Renaissance styles.... gaudy decor lights up my soul! Modern simple minimalist anything hurts me down to my core and makes my inner longing for the ornate and beautiful to want to come out even more.

Modern simple minimalist anything hurts me down to my core and makes my inner longing for the ornate and beautiful to want to come out even more. I've always had an innate non-conformist, artistic nature with a strong need to decorate anything and everything around me. I try to fill my life with color, beauty and love in all forms, and this includes my jewelry designs....if there is a space to be filled with rhinestones, jewels, flowers or beads, you can be sure it will be!

Kerala caters to women that love to adorn themselves with color, detail and sparkly fun earrings. The shop features unique, attention-grabbing, colorful, and ornate Bohemian Victorian chandelier, costume, bridal and statement earrings with a feminine antique flair. The lively earrings are designed with many kinds of beads from handmade rustic Indian glass to refined and sparkling faceted crystals and pearls. Most of the chandelier earrings are longer than 3″ and richly decorated with filigrees, vintage findings, hand-painted flowers, Victorian stampings and Swarovski rhinestones and jewels. The designs are highly detailed, with every jewel and rhinestone set by hand, all the flowers hand-painted and every embellishment pieced together one at a time. The brass filigrees are antiqued through a 3 step process making them appear to be from the true time period in which they were inspired from.
