Shayla Davis' Profile

About

I have been collecting beads since before I knew what to do with them and creating jewelry since grade school. I don't remember what exactly first inspired me, but I now realize that most of my jewelry pieces seem to be somewhat inspired by the place I grew up, on the Oregon coast. For the first 18 years of my life I lived close to the ocean and around lots of nature. When I graduated from high school I moved to Ashland, OR for college, and found myself surrounded by creative people and inspiring artwork. My freshman year I learned to make a simple pair of earrings using pliers one night spontaneously, and I was hooked. When I started making jewelry using wire and chain about 10 years ago I was always drawn to the pretty stone beads and especially freshwater pearls, and eventually came up with a lot of super feminine, delicate, nature inspired designs that I personally love to wear myself.

I have been collecting beads since before I knew what to do with them and creating jewelry since grade school. I don't remember what exactly first inspired me, but I now realize that most of my jewelry pieces seem to be somewhat inspired by the place I grew up, on the Oregon coast. For the first 18 years of my life I lived close to the ocean and around lots of nature. When I graduated from high school I moved to Ashland, OR for college, and found myself surrounded by creative people and inspiring artwork. My freshman year I learned to make a simple pair of earrings using pliers one night spontaneously, and I was hooked. When I started making jewelry using wire and chain about 10 years ago I was always drawn to the pretty stone beads and especially freshwater pearls, and eventually came up with a lot of super feminine, delicate, nature inspired designs that I personally love to wear myself. It was amazing when I found out that other women and girls wanted to wear and buy my designs.
I love making pieces that have some statement without being over-the-top. I love using old keys on necklaces and creating unique asymmetrical designs. I use recycled silver (with a slightly higher content than sterling) whenever possible, and occasionally gold filled wire and brass too.
I now live in Silverton, OR with my fiancee, where I have opened a little shop/studio where I make and sell my jewelry along with other handmade products Monday through Saturday. Shayla Lynn Jewelry is located at 106 North 1st. St. in downtown Silverton.

If you have any questions about my jewelry or would like to inquire about customized jewelry, please feel free to convo me!

**Making top quality jewelry and exceptional customer service are my top priorities for my Etsy shop** Only high quality, blemish free pearls, stones, and metals are used in my jewelry. Sterling silver and Argentium Silver are known to be hypo-allergenic for most people and have exceptional shine. It can be polished with a polishing cloth and cleaned with mild soap and water.
Please know packages will be shipped as quickly as possible, and jewelry will be packaged well.
Thanks :)
