Well hello February! Always a great day here in the snowy northeast! The march toward spring is on - I received a seed catalog yesterday - another good sign. And a busy spring it will be. My husband, John and I are moving south! We have purchased a house in Charleston! We have the big task of moving ahead - yet the 'pot of gold' at the end of this rainbow is key - I have my eye on the prize - living in the same town as my darling daughter! She headed south seventeen years ago when she attended college in Alabama - making the move to Charleston after working in Birmingham for a few years after graduation. She then relocated to Charleston - we could not be more excited to be relocating to this magical city.....We were recently in Charleston and we went out to dinner - there were diners eating outside on the patio - there were peepers chirping YES after dark in January - there are many great reasons to be going south!

Hello, I am Karen Devnew, artist and jewelry designer and vintage jewelry collector. Welcome to my world of color, light, imagination, and magic. I have been artistic since I was a small child - a ya ya in some circles. Jewelry, weaving, macrame, painting, photography and pottery are just of few of my favorite mediums. I designed a YaYa crown for a birthday surprise for a friend and to my delight it inspired me to make jewelry again. Jewelry is my true passion. I have been a long time collector of baubles, beads, buttons gems, crystals, shells, and stones. My joy is the creation of wearable art I make each piece by hand personally. the color, the feel, the sound, and the visual impact of each piece is my art. My materials are of the finest quality. I work in my studio located in Norton MA. I am currently creating chi strands, altar pieces, mobiles, treasure chests, inspiration jars and crowns, in addition to my jewelry pieces. I will be focused on selling my vintage jewelry collection and hope you find something to delight you as it has delighted me. I hope something just catches your eye as well as your spirit, and you will enjoy wearing it, as much as I enjoyed creating or procuring it. I am so thrilled to be here. I am awestruck by all of the beautiful handmade and vintage pieces offered here on Etsy. I find it all so inspirational. I feel blessed to become a part of this community. It's a new day for me and for Just a Ya Ya Design and with an offer of gratitude, I welcome you. My healing continues and I just want to say how being back and working in my shop has been essential to my well being - and that is it - in a nut shell - grateful - it's the very best!

I absolutely love the bracelet I purchased. Came as pictured, more beautiful in person actually! I had some questions for the seller about sizing and received excellent advice and help; she also was very timely with communication all around. Delivery time also awesome, and cute packaging. Would definitely recommend this shop and would purchase again.

My work is my joy. My studio which is located here in my home is the place where the magic happens. I feel so blessed to be in this creative process, and to do what you love is one of the greatest gifts anyone can have. My efforts and energies are directed into creating beautiful pieces of art for the enjoyment of my friends, family, and customers. When you all are happy then I am happy also. "A little foolishness, enough to enjoy life and a little wisdom to avoid the errors, that will do" Osho, author & philosopher (1931-1990) Presently I am organizing and listing all the vintage jewelry that has made its way into my life, I have a terrific collection that I am looking forward to offering here on Etsy. Once I get that together I will be back in the studio with some wonderful new designs and a NEW signature necklace, I will keep you posted.

Additional policies and FAQs
1.What can Just a Ya Ya Design do for you? I offer many services beyond selling the Jewelry Collection. I would love to design any kind of piece you may have in mind. Perhaps you have a favorite piece that is out of date or broken. I make repairs and redesign jewelry, creating new venues with existing materials.
2. My dear friend Angie had a necklace that had belonged to her mother. The necklace was made of these little cubes, they were so bright and fun, crayola cubes I called them. They were made of a material similar to bakelite. I did a bit of research and discovered these were vintage deco beads. The clasp was broken and the 'string' was frayed. I redesigned the piece and added sterling silver accents and a gorgeous sterling lobster clasp. It's magic. The original integrity of the piece remained intact, with the length and the style, but a new wearable piece was born. The original was not very expensive, the 'new' piece is a treasure to my friend as she is able to wear her mother's updated beads, which is of course priceless.
3. Gift wrapping is free - all orders arrive gift wrapped, ready for giving. I promise it will always be creative and beautiful, I can include a small note card if desired. You can include your message in note to seller.
4. My Just a Ya Ya Jewelry is made of the finest quality materials available. My gemstones, beads, crystals are gathered here in the neighborhood and around the globe. I have incredible contacts in Nepal, Kenya, Java, England and the American Southwest. I am always on the hunt for interesting raw materials that I bring together in my pieces. My findings are top-notch, and I use only the highest quality .925 Sterling Silver. Occasionally I find and will use a plated or a faux piece, which is always clearly identified in the description. Some faux components are just too gorgeous to pass by. I guarantee the high quality of my jewelry and insist that my customers are completely satisfied.
5. What I hear from my customers is so rewarding. My work has been well received and that has brought me great joy. I enjoy the fact as my pieces are worn, my art and creativity is shared. I can think of no better canvas, than all the women who wear my jewelry and in some small way delight in it. The jewelry is here for you now, and I can't wait for you to wear some, so I can stand in your light too! I hope to hear from you, it's just a new adventure waiting to begin, until then, take care.
