French Beaded Flowers

I am inspired by nature. I spend my

summers out in the garden taking pictures of all kinds of flowers to make. I happen to have a brown thumb and cant

grow ANY THING so I make all my flowers from seed beads. This way I can't kill them by forgetting to water them

or feed them.

Work with Love

Pursuing a spiritual Journey for quite some time now, I love discovering


cultures. Fascinated by the special colorful aspects each

culture adds to this Earth, I equally enjoy

rediscovering the extent to

which we resemble, especially upon following our roots..!

It is within

this crossroads of cultural roots that I have learned to

understand and appreciate the basic truth of all


The respect of our Creator; of One Another; of Animals as of Earth

itself. It is upon

the discovery of this amazing crossroads that

Kahliya was born.

A world tuned to Harmony

,Beauty and Nature !
Promoting Soul invested handcraft within total respect & celebration of all creation;

Delivering a message of Love, and actively contributing to relations of Peace among ALL.

Kahliya is about

sharing Love and Beauty with you..the love I have for creation itself and all the wonderful players in it.. the

beauty I find and wish to share glimpses of, celebrating it through my work, incorporating all the natural gifts

of source in the purest form possible, in total respect and appreciation .It is this Joy and celebration I wish to

pass on to you.. I am hopeful that upon experiencing one of kahliya`s products , this energy..this love is felt

and fills you up..

Much Love,

When You Buy Handmade, You Help Preserve Traditional Handicraft

I am

inspired to buy handmade because I come from a family that has always valued handmade items. Through the

generations, we have had those who knit, crochet, sew, quilt, embroider, spin, weave, bake, can, create jewelry,

are metalsmiths, welders, and blacksmiths. Those traditional skills have been handed down through the generations

and have helped preserve them in a modern world that doesn't always see their worth.

I was taught to

embroider, crochet, and knit starting at the age of five and over the years, I've added more and more hobbies.

Some have remained as hobbies but making jewelry has become my business. It's nice to feel a connection to the

other metalworkers in my family all the way to the blacksmiths in the Appalachians and the welder who worked in

the shipyard during WWII.
