I once had a friend who designed and built everything in his house including his dishes. I thought that was the coolest idea ever, to have things that were uniquely yours. I've felt this way all of my life. That's why I mostly make one of a kind pieces, so no two people will ever have the exact same piece. Every human being is unique so why not every piece of jewelry. Jewelry that's as unique as you are. Jewelry that speaks to you.
I am part Cherokee so I think that's why I'm drawn to the colors of the desert and the water. I think Mother Nature creates the most glorious stones.

I have two precious dogs that I adore. This shop is named after the one who is also my avatar, Maya. She was a stray who was found running loose in the streets when a kind soul picked her up and turned her in at my vet's office. She needed a home and she chose me. I'm so happy she did. Her brother, Toby, is the avatar for my other etsy shop. Making jewelry let's me be at home with them all day. We all like that. Hope you enjoy my creations. Thanks for visiting and come back often as I am always adding new items.
