Living An Inspired Intentional Life


I welcome you and extend gratitude to you for visiting with me.

I am Dawn-the owner and creative designer of this inspired company. It is my purpose to create. I enjoy every aspect of the design journey and it is my hope that you will enjoy what I have to offer.

Although I began this inspired journey just a few years ago, it was my passion for color and form that encouraged me to find a place in the art of jewelry design. I have learned so much about the richness and beauty of my African heritage throughout my lifetime. I am still a student. Africa in all of its beauty and strength is infused in the culture of so many others around the world and because of this truth-it is a necessity for me to create jewelry that is reflective of this amazing culture. They don't call it "The Motherland" for nothing.

I believe that jewelry design is an art-a dialect all its own. It is an artistic expression of elements both seen and unseen. This is the definition of "Faith" in which I walk this journey each day. God has blessed me with a few gifts. It is my responsibility to respond to him (in gratefulness) by using at least one-to show him how much I appreciate it.

It is my hope that one of my designs reaches you and teaches you.

Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds. Exchanges only. Please contact me within 5 days of receipt of purchase to request exchange and to discuss reason. It is important to me that you enjoy your piece. Shipping will be at your (the customer) expense.

I will always provide accurate descriptions of each piece with all known disclosures. I welcome all questions regarding my designs. Again, it is important to me that you enjoy your piece.

The type metal used in most designs is tarnish resistant wire and/or pewter. These metals may (still) oxidize over time with frequent wear therefore cannot be a "reason" for return. You may use a (dry) jewelry cloth to clean and restore shine. When sterling silver or karat gold (precious metals) is used in a design it will be specified within the description. You can also request a custom order to include this metals in your piece.

Each design is carefully handcrafted and requires delicate handling. I ask that you store your piece in a jewelry box or in another type of air tight container. It is necessary to protect your piece from the atmosphere (of heat & moisture) as much as possible. I also advise against wearing your piece(s) in water or applying any type of body products (i.e. perfume/colognes) after placing jewelry.

All custom orders will be communicated via online photos (drafts) and will require a signature of acceptance throughout the process. You (the customer/co designer) will be allowed up to 3 revisions throughout the design process.
