BESTeam Feature: Designs by M'Ayanna

I live in Vermont where winter is still going strong. Snow every where! But, the thing about mid-March is that I know the long, cold winter will soon be over. So when I visited the shop I am featuring this week, Designs by M'Ayanna, I was automatically drawn to some of the jewelry that made me think of spring and the beach. The fashion jewelry in this shop is beautiful, and another great thing is that DesignsbyMayanna offers plus size jewelry.

Coral Concerto Necklace - Movement Number One

Designs by M'Ayanna is owned by Patrice Kelly from Chicago, Illinois. Patrice began making jewelry because her daughter, Ayanna, was interested in it. Ayanna soon lost interest in jewelry making, but by that time, Patrice was hooked. The shop name is short for Mommy and Ayanna. Ayanna's roll now is to critique all of Patrice's designs. If Ayanna doesn't like something, Patrice doesn't sell it.

Madelyn Necklace

The Designs by M'Ayanna Blog offers lots of helpful tips for other jewelry sellers. Here are two examples: Jewelry Photo Editing Tips for Professional Results and Sell Your Jewelry And Make Money At Craft Shows. There are also tutorials like this one, How To Make Paper Jewelry. I think I will give this tutorial a try.

Hearts In A Web Earrings

    I really liked this: Coral Concerto Necklace - Movement Number One.
    And then I saw the watch, Kiwi Stone Wristwatch, and couldnt decide which one I liked best :)
