Hi everyone! Thanks for shopping at Mashariki Designs! The word "mashariki" means east and can also be translated as sunrise in Swahili. The inspiration for the name comes from time I spent living and studying in Kenya, Africa, gaining both a vision and purpose for this shop.

I wanted to sponsor a child from Kenya, but as a student now about to start graduate school for nursing, I never thought I would be able to afford it. In November 2010, I opened this shop and with Mashariki Designs, I am able to sponsor a beautiful young girl named Celestine! 100% of the proceeds from Mashariki Designs goes towards the monthly sponsorship fee, and any excess is given as a gift to Celestine and her family during the holiday season!

Many of the materials I use are recycled, but all of the materials I use are high quality! Every pair of earrings I make are ones that I would wear, but if you like some of the beads but not necessarily the design, feel free to convo me and I can design something just for you!
