I am very very particular on purchasing jewelry especially when it comes to belly button rings. I was thrilled to find an amethyst and rose quartz together, let alone these are authentic gemstones. BEAUTIFUL Thank you

About

Welcome to Silvia Macias Designs!

Greetings! My name is Silvia and I am the owner and designer of Silvia Macias Designs.

As a graphic designer by trade and an artist by calling; I have been creating things for as long as I can remember. Drawing, painting, photography, shop classes, ceramics, sewing, cooking, baking...

Born, raised and residing in sunny Southern California, I find inspiration from the beaches to the west, the mountains to the east, and the Lord above.

Seeking a career as a professional artist, I received formal art school training and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Art.

Although I love my Mac, after many years as a graphic designer, I began to miss the tactile experience of manually creating art. Jewelry design was the solution. Throughout the years, I had frequently altered existing jewelry and began creating jewelry. The feedback I received was always positive. It started with compliments and led to requests. That inspired me to take my jewelry designing to the next level. Hence, my new Etsy shop.

In my shop you will find a assortment of jewelry, featuring a variety of techniques which I am exploring. From wire wrapping gems, to textured metal work.
Of all the materials, sterling silver is my favorite. It's so clean and bright. Plus, knowing that the majority of the world's sterling silver comes from Mexico makes it that much more special to me.

Should you have any questions or comments, feel free to convo me.
Making good use of my insomnia, I may write back at some strange hour, when normal folks are sleeping! ;)

Thank you for visiting my shop and have a great day!
