About

A woman can never have too much jewelry!

I think it all started - my love affair with jewelry - when I was a little girl. I remember holding my Mother's jewelry up to the window and being fascinated by how it sparkled and danced in the light. Having invaded her jewelry box over and over, one day she said to me, "Maya, you should have been a gypsy!"

That was the beginning of this life-long passion for all things sparkly. In the intervening years the fascination morphed into - dare I say it?! - an addiction!

Here at connectionsbymaya I am the "She"EO. I am a one woman show - I'm the buyer, designer, creator, marketing department, shipping department . . . and I love it all!

I immerse myself totally into each stage of the process. As the buyer, I walk into a bead store or the Gem Fair and I'm transported away to another realm! I lose all connection to time and responsibilities. I'm transformed into a woman obsessed!

Then begins the creative designing. Sometimes I'm inspired by the bead itself, sometimes by one or another beauty on God's great earth and sometimes an idea just pops into my head for seemingly no reason and away I go! Passionate about color, working with my hands and of course the creative process, I love to combine elements into fabulous, casual or elegant, classy, easy to wear, memorable, affordable, must have jewelry! The skies the limit - limited only by imagination (and time!). I work on each piece until it's just right - often into the wee hours of the night (actually morning!). Sometimes I'll "sit on it" for a day or two to see if I can improve it in any way. Then it's ready for "prime time"!

I photograph it in as many ways as it takes to show potential buyers the design and style of the piece . . . each detail . . . every angle. I choose the best of the pix, write the copy and the listing for my Etsy shop is ready to publish.

Marketing is next and when I hear the "cha-ching" on my phone I know that someone out there loves the piece as much as I do! Entering the shipping department, I carefully package the piece in a Kraft box and tie it with coordinating twine - a tasteful package I'm proud to send and the the buyer is delighted to open and/or happy to give.

connectionsbymaya is a creative business - true - but for me it's much more than that. It's about "connections" - people (both buyers and sellers) who begin with a common interest - jewelry, the creative process, art - that come together, connect and develop relationships - "connections". It's gratifying, satisfying, rewarding . . . I LOVE it and perhaps/hopefully you will enjoy the "connections" too.

Additionally, I hope you enjoy my designs. Please know that each is made with special TLC . . . and I always put the buyer first. Please don't hesitate to get in touch - for whatever reason - I'd love to "connect" and work with you until you have exactly what you want!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Special requests - custom orders - are welcome! Please send me a convo (an email through Etsy) and tell me the specifics of what you would like. I will give you a quote and an approzimate completion date. For custom work I ask for payment up front. Your satisfaction is important to me - we can work togther toward that end.

Sizing details

To determine your exact wrist size, wrap a piece of string or ribbon around your wrist - not too tight and not too loose, but so there is no gap and the string or ribbon touches your wrist all the way around. Measure the string or ribbon and send that measurement to me.

Care instructions

To clean and maintain your jewelry, use a treated cloth or a jewelry dip. Please read the label on the cleaning product before using it - a dip is safe for sterling silver, copper and brass but it is not safe for pearls of any kind. It may or may not be safe for some semiprecious stones.

Be sure to condition leather on a regular basis to keep it shiny and smooth and to avoid cracking.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each piece of jewelry that your purchase from connectionsbymaya will arrive in a kraft box tied with coordinating twine - ready for gift giving. if you would like additional gift wrapping - or if you would like me to include a special message to the recipient of the piece - please let me know by leaving your request in the notes section when you check out.
