And there was la Naváa

Hello my dear reader,

I'm excited to share my journey with you. I've never been a blogger before, so I am oh-so new to this. Please hang with me though, I'm a quick study.

That's actually how I began making jewelry; quickly. I don't have years invested like some, but I can tell you I like it just as much as them, and perhaps sometimes more. ;)

I've always been fairly artistic and creative, just never really with an outlet. My friend introduced me to jewelry, and I thank her for it. I've found my vice. The methodical rhythm one gets into when stringing a necklace or wrapping wire is something that I find very soothing. And then, when it's all done, the excitement is nearly overwhelming. After sometimes hours of thought and care and meticulous work, I take a look at this masterpiece I, yes I just created... yeah, great fun. Like I said, it's a wonderful outlet for me. In my opinion, everything should have an outlet of some kind. One that actually allows them to be productive. One where they can enjoy the fruits of their labor. Highly recommended by me.

So I should tell you how la Naváa came about. Being a spiritually centered person, I wanted to tie my art back to the being that allowed me to create it; my creator.

la Naváa to me means the beautiful. My inspiration was derived from an Aramaic translation of the word "nava," meaning beautiful. Upon adding my own little sense of creativity, la Naváa was born.

It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you: la Naváa.

My sincerest appreciation to you for allowing part of my world to become part of yours.
