Abstract jewelry made by a creative, for creatives.

Inspiration strikes at any moment. Sometimes today, sometimes years ago.

My foray into accessories and jewelry started when I was about four years old. As a child, I went to craft fairs with my mom where she sold floral arrangements and Christmas decor--all handmade.

She then taught me how to make beaded lizard keychains (remember those from the 90’s?) I made a handful of them to sell and surprisingly they sold like hotcakes. But, that’s just it--I became a mini entrepreneur in the making because of those lizards.

Little did I know, I wouldn’t go back to those entrepreneur, artisan roots until much later in life. But it’s never too late to experiment, change, and grow right?

Migrant Muse Designs was born from my gold leaf obsession and my love for travel and creativity. Throw in my curiosity for painting with soothing, softer colours, and I decided to venture into the handmade jewellery world by making wearable art.

Art that looks chic and inspires. Original jewelry that goes with any mood.

Why the gold leaf? Because sometimes we could use some gold in our lives, a little sparkle, to remind us of the moments we love to revisit, and the dreams that pull at our hearts until we know it’s time to go live them.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this snippet of my story. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the shop. Happy shopping!
