About YaYJewelry

On Etsy since 2009

Inspiring you to wear something happy everyday!.

I think it is important to feel good about what you wear. First impressions are about what people see. I find myself often staring at people that just seem to have it all pulled together. Maybe they aren't like that in the inside but they look it and I like the saying "Fake It Till You Make It"

YaY! Jewelry really started as a hobby...for fun and for free like most. People would tell me you really should sell your designs. I struggled with my esteem as a jewelry artist .... I really wasn't sure of my style yet. Overtime I found what I really loved and learned as an artist if I trust my gut and stay true to what I love others will to.

Some exciting news for YaY! Jewelry was getting on the front cover and securing the Designer Collection in Belle Armoire Jewelry. Seeing your designs in print is quite thrilling and on another note YaY Jewelry has been seen on the neck of one of The Vampire Diaries stars. One of my creations was worn by actress Claire Holt who plays Rebekah. I have also made jewelry for Cedar Cove TV and had actress Teryl Rothery wear one of my necklaces.

I am an earthy jewelry and accessory artist. I love to work with stone and mixed media. I love earthy and eclectic jewelry and accessories. I think if I saw someone wearing that I would want to talk to them and ask them questions. So as I design I keep the consumer in mind.

Here is what one of my customers had to say about their purchases.

"WOW. WOW. WOW. I thought these were nice looking in the photos...duh!! They're gorgeous!! The "pictures" on the stones are amazing...they look hand-drawn! I LOVE these earrings!!!! :D"

I love to experiment with different styles now and again...so you might see something in my shop that is off the beaten path from what I normally make. I like to keep it fresh and free...that is where my creativity streams from.

I hope I inspire you to wear something that makes you feel happy and beautiful.

Enjoy my shop!
