Beautiful, delicate, yet full of life. These earings are just the right size to wear when my hair is down.

About

You are Why I do What I Do! :) <3

We are thrilled that everyone who purchases our handmade artisan jewelry and home decor knows they are getting a one of a kind piece worthy of becoming a much-loved heirloom.

Before I created Sonora Kay, I was going to school to be an accountant. Exciting for some, boring for me.

Then one day a friend asked if I could make a memorial bracelet from her recently departed horses hair, another asked if I could make her a dream catcher to hang above her bed to help rid bad dreams, and yet another asked if I could create a special birthstone item that would incorporate the whole family to give as a gift to her grandmother.

I was concerned that creating jewelry for my friends would get in the way of my studies. But then I realized that making beautiful works of art for others was more fulfilling than playing with numbers so I decided I set out to create the most exquisite jewelry designs to meet the unique individual needs of consumers who love Bohemian style jewelry.

It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.

I started all this while taking full-time college classes located a full hour from my home. Early classes started at 7 am 5 days a week, creating had to be more on the side as I focused on my GPA.

Becoming an accountant was not as much fun as I thought, so I changed my major to General Studies with minors in business and psychology. One of my psychology professors stressed the importance of doing something totally not related to studying. For me, that was playing with my craft, creating beautiful one of a kind jewelry, and home decor items.

I was able to take online classes the final 4 semesters of my academic career, which freed up my commute time, bonus I could "go to class" when I wanted.. even at 3 am in my pajamas with messy hair and no makeup. It was life-changing for me, and for my business.

The most difficult trial that I faced during this time was also being a full-time caregiver to my partner who had suffered a stroke that stole his ability to communicate. I had to be able to drop everything to take or make phone calls for him, go with him to Dr appointments, and his speech therapy.

Through it all, we released our first products and the response has been astounding. The feedback from happy customers has been overwhelming at times and makes me feel so good to know that my work has such a positive impact on their lives.
