Baephire Jewelry Designs
Baephire is genderless jewelry art
Inspired by the process of creation and the element of fire🔥
(hence all the dragons... 👀 )
Creativity is often like dreams, you never know where the imagination will take you. And you never know what will spring from the fire of life.
My name is Kayla Viola, and I'm a jewelry designer and gemologist, graduated from the world-renowned Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in Carlsbad, California. Over the last 10 years, I've studied under masters and mentors learning the arts of various healing modalities. But what truly fascinates me and the place I have received the most knowledge, is dreams.
Many times, designs come to me through dreams. I've even had clients who dream of designs and then come to me to translate them into physical reality. Dreaming of gemstones and jewelry designs is what initially drew me to the education I received at GIA, and continues to inspire my designs today.
I'm often described by my friends and family as a bit of a mystery because I'm passionate about many things. That's why I bring a lot of different elements from my life into jewelry design to honor my creativity in whichever way it wants to flow. Whether that means I’m inspired by anime, fantasy, science fiction, video games, astrology, or dreams! My imagination takes inspiration from every area of life.
I am also heavily influenced by my Indigenous community as a member of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians. I bring this through to my designs in an effort to express the most potent medicine in my life: respect, reverence, and connection to our planet, ancestors, and communities.
