Analisa's Cositas is a small business run by a teacher and a mom. My name is Analisa Byrd, mom, wife, and music teacher. I started this handmade business over fifteen years ago as a hobby. Slowly, designing jewelry has become a therapeutic outlet for me. I source my jewelry supplies from all types of bead collections to keep the cost low. As a teacher and former single mom, I believe you can be beautiful on a budget.
My Design Process
I work hard on all my jewelry pieces to create something that is unique. I gather my color inspirations from all over my environment and often take risks that other designers may not take! I'm not always concerned with current trends as I believe you were made to stand out from the crowd and so should your jewelry. A necklace can take anywhere from an hour to three hours start to finish. I start first by playing with bead colors and shapes before I come up with a pattern I think you will love. From there, I work hard to make sure each necklace, pair of earrings, or bracelet is crafted to handmade perfection.
Quality Materials at an Affordable Price
I choose beads that are typically semi-precious and precious stones to enhance the beauty of the jewelry piece. I handcraft with silver plated materials mostly to help keep cost low. When cared for appropriately this material can last for years and years without tarnish and with lasting shine. I am also allergic to nickel so I know the struggle of finding earrings and other pieces of jewelry that will not harm my skin. I only use nickel free, hypoallergenic earring posts and toggle clasps.
My mission is to provide my customers with quality jewelry at an affordable price. Handcrafted jewelry can be very expensive as you are not only paying for materials, but the crafter's time and talent, as well. I bring you all the time and talent any handmade artisan would and try very hard to keep materials affordable for you. I pride myself on customer service and satisfaction. Shopping from a small business means you connect directly with me and not a big box store. This close customer service relationship will result in satisfaction guaranteed! Please let me know if you have any more questions. I'll be happy to help you. You can chat live with me via chat or reach out to me on any of my social media platforms. I hope you have an enjoyable shopping experience! Thank you for choosing Analisa's Cositas!
