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 business over ten years ago as a hobby. Slowly, designing jewelry has become a therapeutic outlet for me. I source my supplies from all sorts of places to keep the cost to you, low. As a teacher and former single mom, I believe you can be beautiful on a budget. I craft with silver plated material mostly to help keep cost low. When cared for appropriately this material can last for years and years without tarnish and with lasting shine. Please let me know if you have any questions. I'll be happy to help you.
