This is the beginning of a new adventure I started after traveling as a professional tennis player.
Competing in the 2000 Olympics, Wimbledon, French Open, U.S. Open and Australian Open since 1990 and traveling 10 months out of the year for 17 yrs., it made me realize I wanted to do something else in my life.
While making my first bracelet when I was travelling, I thought
how neat it would be to make jewelry full time.
After exploring many designs around the world, I had always made little crafts
and unique jewelry for friends and family members.
After some time and thought and plenty of recommendations, I have decided to
make special pieces of jewelry out of my creative thinking which turn into special little treasures.
As many people have said to me that I make wonderful gifts, I hope you feel the same.
Take a peek at my jewelry that makes perfect gifts for the holidays, special occasions
or just a little gift for yourself.
A little blurb from Jon Wertheim (Sports Illustrated) :
" Remember Nana Smith (Miyagi), the former tennis player?
Caleb of Lavender Bay, Australia, called Nana's Jewelry to our attention.
''Anyone who has beaten both Hingis and Davenport surely
deserves an unabashed product plug don't they? Absolutely. ' "
