Hi! I am Ayana Glaze, founder of Ayana Glaze Designs – where we choose to uplift others through faith-inspired jewelry, apparel, and gifts. If you are looking for a unique gift that will lift someone’s spirt or if you want to treat yourself to something special, I am sure we have just what you are looking for.
Would you believe this business started because I wanted a pair of earrings? I could not find what I wanted in stores, so I decided to make a pair. I never questioned whether I could make the earrings. I had a vision and a desire to make what I wanted. Jewelry making became my hobby. My hobby became my passion. My passion led to a business built on a God-given purpose to uplift others.
It took some time for me to realize that I am not a typical spiritual jewelry designer. Instead of the usual crosses you see in jewelry, I design abstract clouds and sculpted flames, like those in my Shekinah Collection. Inspired by the Exodus, these designs carry a simple, yet powerful message – God is with you.
Whether I am working with gemstones, metals, or another material, I strive to create pieces that my customers can connect with. An impactful and meaningful piece of jewelry or accessory can become a treasured keepsake passed down through generations.
God has blessed me with expanded vision to grow into a gift service. My God-given talents for jewelry and fashion design combine with my expertise as a content strategist and wordsmith. Now, I am on a mission to share God’s word in a way that spreads hope and encourages people rather than turns them away.
Faith – God is THE source. That is all. Period!
Family – My family is my beloved support system. I do this because for them.
Purpose – God has called me to uplift others and help others do the same.
Hope – There is always hope - no matter how dark things seem or how difficult the situation.
Love – Love eradicates fear, hate, and all things negative. It does not fail. Love is everything.
Happiness – We were given life to live it to the fullness and have a life rich with joy.
