During this month, spent celebrating all that we are thankful for, Maja says she is most thankful for her healthy family.
"These are very difficult times we are all going trough," she says. "So much uncertainty makes us more vulnerable and scared, which means these times have also made us realize what is most important. And that is our family and friends, staying safe and healthy. This is the foundation of happiness."
When Maja thinks of the "why" behind her brand, aside from the joy and sense of purpose she personally receives from it and the flexibility it provides her family to enjoy their time together, she feels most filled with passion hearing the stories of her clients.
Each of us has a story. Which means her necklaces do too.
"Our stories are as unique as we are," says Maja. "And so, every one of my designs is unique as well. I learn so much from the women I meet, and we quickly becomes friends in the end. And to think that it all started with a necklace, the way our stories begin to weave together. I'm very grateful."
For professional creatives, it is imperative that they maintain a daily routine that supports inspiration, focus and vision, and Maja has found that filling her days with multiple support lines has been most effective.
"My daily routine for creativity includes praying, listening to happy music, meditation, reading positive quotes (I love quotes!), and self-help books and podcasts," says Maja. "There are so many amazing teachers, coaches, writers and podcasters that can fill us with a positive outlook on life. We have to concentrate on happiness, especially in these unsure and fear-based times."
One of the struggles that many of us who work from home can relate to is the need to stay focused to remain productive. For Maja, she says she performs best when she remembers to take time for herself to stay centered and open to creative ideas.
"When I design, this is my time to meditate and 'get away,'" she says. "I absolutely love creating. This is my time for me, and nobody can take it away. And that makes me so happy. My kids have seen me create for a long time now, so they understand and are very supportive."
When asked which of her designs is her favorite, Maja says GOD. "Because GOD is everything."
Maja recently added a new design to her line, SMILE, because she says she is certain that she is not the only one who has missed being able to see people's smiles when she is out in her community.
"We've been wearing masks for a while now, so I felt like this design was necessary to bring smiles at least as a symbol on a tshirt," says Maja. "My ultimate goal is to bring positive energy and happiness through my designs. I'm already thinking of my next design to add. What do you think about JOY?"
