About Gaia's Candy

Hello, and welcome to Gaia's Candy!

I'm Deanna, the owner, designer, creator, dreamer, rockhound, and self-taught metalsmith behind Gaia's Candy.

I started out making simple jewelry in my free time about 15 years ago. In the beginning, I mostly stuck to making simple beaded necklaces and earrings for friends and family. I've always loved jewelry and gemstones, though, and always wanted to learn how to create more interesting pieces. In the last few years I've realized that the more I learn about jewelrymaking and metalworking, the more captivated I am by the whole process. I've now gotten to the point that I can't imagine doing anything else! Creating jewelry is an essential part of who I am. If I wasn't able to sit down and create the pieces I dream up, a huge piece would be missing from my life.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my shop. Thank you so much for stopping by!
