Maya Macauley has been working with wire and other jewelry making methods for the last 10 years.  She has always been a crafter for as long as she remembers, even selling some of her ‘handmade hair clips’ in elementary school.  She started jewelry making 10 years ago with simple wire wrapped earrings.  Over the years, she has extended her repertoire significantly when she discovered fine silver fusing and Precious Metal Clay (PMC).

From Laurie Aquilante

“I love Designs by Maya. Not only do I have beautiful jewelry that I love and that I know is high quality, but I’ve also had some great custom pieces done. One in particular comes to mind. It was nearing the birthday of a close friend – we’ve been friends for over 15 years – and in fact, we call each other ‘sisters’, not friends. We live on opposite coasts now and so we’re not involved in each other’s day-to-day life as much as I’d like. And she’s pretty simple - she buys what she wants/needs and that’s it – but she also appreciates high-quality items. Plus, I wanted to do something special and unique. So I was really all out of ideas when I turned to Maya. I was inspired by a project she did for a woman and her fiancé. She created a very masculine looking dog-tag looking necklace with special words engraved in it. Together, we came up with the idea of a beautiful, silver, engraved bracelet that had the letters “fbc” and “sbc”. With it, I gave her a card that explained what the letters stood for “friends by chance” and “sisters by choice”. People often say the opposite – “Sisters by chance, friends by choice”. But not in my case! Thank you designs by Maya! My friend LOVED it – she even cried when she opened it!"

From Jen Benson

"As a customer and party host, I highly recommend Designs by Maya.  Each and every design is unique and hand crafted.  Maya’s customer service exceeded my expectations during the order process, as well as follow-up and replacement of a lost earring for my mom over one year later.  Maya’s designs come from her heart, thus a commitment to satisfaction and customer care."

From Billi Trask

"Absolutely love my jewelry that I have purchased from Maya.  The beautiful designs and great craftsmanship show in each piece.  I lost a mate to one of my favorite earrings and Maya replaced it super quick and with no problems.  Always enjoy wearing my pieces from Maya - Thanks!"

From Patty Powers

"I absolutely love all of the pieces I have purhcased from Maya. She is wonderful to deal with. I actually had a piece of jewery that I purchased from another designer and never really wore it because I was not crazy about it. So... I took it to Maya and told her what I didn't like about it and she reworked it and added her artistic touch and now I enjoy wearing this piece. You really won't go wrong with Maya's Designs. She bends over backwards for her customers.  Thanks Maya!"
