Her jewelry making started out as a business idea for her 10-year-old daughter. Her daughter's interest lasted for all of three weeks and in the meantime Patrice got hooked instead! The name of the shop reflects that initial relationship. M’Ayanna is short for “Mommy and Ayanna.”
Making jewelry was, at first for Patrice, just a hobby –– it soothed her mind and allowed her to put the pressures of daily life aside for a while. As her skills improved, however, she began to buy more and more beads and findings and books and beads and ribbon and chain and… well, you get the picture. It sounds suspiciously like how I got started in soapmaking and knitting...before you know it you have a book shelf dedicated to crafting books and a closet full of all kinds things you 'need' for your craft!
Here are just a few things that caught my eye while checking out Patrice's shop....but this watch is my favorite!
