About Evita Mia Designs
Welcome to Evita Mia Designs where you will find jewelry that enriches the essence of who you are and what you believe in. Made with purpose and crafted with heart, each piece is designed to love and enlighten.
Are you drawn to jewelry that makes you feel vibrant, spirited and full of life? Do you consider yourself a passionate woman with strong beliefs? Are you someone who believes we are all meant to make a positive impact in this lifetime? Do you love to collect art that has meaning and tells a story? Do you value the time and creative efforts put into handcrafted items? Do these objects become personal and valuable to you?
If you answered yes to any (or all!) of the questions above, you are in the right place. Everyone has a purpose and a tale to tell. Your jewelry is your story. What you choose to wear represents your journey, your style, your cause, or your beliefs. Every jewelry piece is an original reflection of you.
What makes my jewelry distinct is the intricate weaving and structuring of gemstones, resulting in beautiful and bold designs. Each piece is thoroughly planned, from an initial vision sketch to color combinations and use of materials. Materials include raw gemstones from India, African trade beads, raw brass, recycled glass, and charms made by a community workshop in Mexico that focuses on lifting women and men out of poverty. All pieces are entirely original to Evita Mia Designs and no detail is ever overlooked. Everything is created with lots of imagination and detailed integrity, with many items intended to support a cause.
My work reflects the different cultures I’ve experienced and the various creative directions life has taken me. My colorful Colombian heritage and Costa Rican upbringing is a constant source of inspiration for new ideas, and is seen throughout my designs. My jewelry is for those who have deep appreciation for beauty in all its form. Each piece has its own character and charm. Inspired by this idea of individual beauty, Evita Mia Designs produces unique statement pieces. Often raw in beauty, they evoke vibrancy and include intricate detailing. When you choose Evita Mia Designs, you choose to illuminate your world.

About the Artist
Born in California to Colombian parents, I moved to Costa Rica at the age of twelve. While I haven’t always felt rooted in one place, or culture, I have felt a calling to do something with my life by creating, loving, and giving back.
After attending fashion school, I moved to a remote beach, Santa Teresa, and discovered the beauty of nature on my daily walks. I was surrounded by nature, humid salt air, and howling monkeys. It is here that I also discovered a new calling. Starting with riverbed rocks and seashells, I began crafting original jewelry pieces. My work was raw and I spent countless hours teaching myself the intricate details of working with wire and beads. I loved playing with form and incorporated new elements into my designs. From there, my love for jewelry making was born.
This interest grew slowly as I transitioned through creative career changes, but once I became a mother, I knew that designing jewelry was not only my passion, but also my purpose. A business that could graciously give back – a value that I am lucky to share with my son. The most important beliefs in my life are to live with intention and to give back. I believe in having dreams, setting goals, and working towards them every single day. I am here to serve and am very passionate about what I do. With an open heart and open hands, I work with intention through my designs and create every item with love to give joy.
"It is not how much we give but how much love we put into giving".
There are five core values at the center of my business and embodied in every item I create:
LOVE creates intention and reminds us to be the best we can be to make a difference in this world.
FREEDOM represents your beliefs, your liberty, and a better life for others.
ARTISTRY is part of the originality of every piece. I don’t take shortcuts and I do take pride in working hard from start to finish, only satisfied to share with you the very best of every collection.
PURPOSE brings a sense of completeness, happiness, and satisfaction, knowing I am part of a movement to bring hope and help save lives.
AMBITION drives us to work harder and achieve greater goals, as well as stay focused and remind me every day why I love this work.
I want people to feel inspired by my jewelry, just as I was inspired to set out on this creative path. Inspiration for my work is often found in the Latin culture and I possess an enduring love for raw stones, in all their hues, shapes, and sizes. I truly believe there is beauty in everything we see – just open your eyes and look around. I am very fortunate to do what I love every day and especially fortunate to share it with you.
