Hi there! I’m Kristi and I live in Oklahoma and my son is Now 19! Mahala is my 3rd great-grandmothers name, which I use for my jewelry. It means “Woman or Marrow” I love that they are interchangable in the Cherokee language! My son is the coolest, his favorite band has been The Beatles since he was 6. He is an old soul. He is now a guitarist and loves Zepplin and black Sabbath and all the grunge bands I grew up with. We are also Star Wars nerds! I’m a Radiographer and amatuer photographer. I love orange! My fav stones are spessartite garnet, andalusite( not the chiastolite variety), and padparadsha sapphire, though I can’t afford to work with the latter! I have been selling antique jewelry the last several years and hope to start beading again too!
