Lake in the Desert Accomplices
Taking inspiration from the extraordinary spectacle of a desert lake in full bloom, Susana Vijaya presents a magnificent creation that embodies the essence of earthly hues and textures. Showcasing a remarkable Picture Jasper cabochon as its centerpiece, this creation is enhanced by the captivating allure of a deep blue Aquamarine. Delicate Aquamarines intricately bead the sepia and teal threads, adding a touch of elegance.
The artistry of Susana Vijaya shines through in every aspect of this wearable artwork, as she skillfully employs her distinctive knotting and sewing techniques that have become synonymous with her craftsmanship. Just as with all our pieces, this one is artfully pulled together with Settanyl waxed thread known for its amazing colorfastness, durability and quality.
ABOUT OUR CREATIONS
Susana Vijaya Co believes in the power of nature’s beauty and how such allure can bring healing, peace and balance into our lives.
The founder, Susana Vijaya, was born in Portugal to a family who is fond of nature and art. Naturally, this cultivated Susana’s love for the arts and her appreciation of nature.
After an accomplished career as a commercial director and a successful vegetarian and macrobiotic restaurant owner, she embarked on a journey to explore the world, eventually discovering her passion for jewelry-making in 2008.
Beyond stunning details and colors, she discovered how gems and semi-precious stones carry an abundance of amazing energy. We can call them conveyors of positivity, so to speak. Susana's fascination with nature and art led to the creation of Susana Vijaya Co.
Our signature pieces are created by Susana Vijaya herself. Every jewelry she makes is a wearable piece of art and is made with love, time and attention to detail.
All Susana Vijaya’s pieces feature sliding knots as clasps. Our jewelries are adjustable for the perfect fit for all.
Simply put on your jewelry and adjust the knot according to your style and comfort. The knot will automatically lock in place. To remove it, just slide out the knot.
All pieces are crafted with Brazilian Settanyl waxed threads that have lasting colorfastness and excellent durability against everyday wear and tear. Our jewelry are waterproof and suitable for metal allergies.
While our pieces are made with the finest Settanyl waxed threads for longevity, occasional cleaning can retain the gemstones' optimal luster. Simply used a soft, damp cloth to wipe the gemstones. Store separately from other jewelries so they don't get scratched.
You'll receive a jewelry that is cleansed with Copal incense and doTERRA essential oil. Your piece will not only smell delightful. It is energetically cleansed with positivity and a good vibe.

always too busy!
