Announcement   My love of photography began with my first Kodak Instamatic camera, the one with the cube flash. I find the process of capturing the beautiful world around me fascinating. After taking hundreds of thousands of photos over the years, I find sharing them is a large part of the joy of being a photographer. I also make jewelry, so this shop is a combination of the two.

This is very pretty! Such a nice happy yellow Jade! The other beads added give the necklace extra fanciness! Seller was very kind. I like the purple bags that it had been wrapped in! Pink pouch is nice, too. I would like to shop from here again in the future. Thank you! Also, happy day for Etsy sellers at Time Square! I hope for a wonderful future for your business and for you! Have a wonderful day!

About

The Jewelry part of my shop is Named After My Great Grandmother Catherine Najmajstr

Being interested in family history and having a colorful great grandmother, I decided to name the company after my maternal great-grandmother, Catherine Vrchota Najmajstr. Catherine emigrated to the US from Bohemia (Czech Republic) as a little girl. She became a homesteader with her husband Frank, eventually running a profitable farm near Hillhead, South Dakota. She died before I was born, but she was well known to me through the stories of others. Catherine was very talented. Not only did she have a lovely flower garden and delivered most of the babies in the area (as a midwife), but she created many talented projects, like the doilies and handkerchiefs I have to this day. I was named after Catherine, except having an Irish father I was named Kathleen. I love semi-precious stones and unusual and pretty Czech glass beads. This company is a symbol of triumph and family. It is woven through with love and the bond between generations and ultimately, healing.
