Earth Majesty is the work of Bay Area artist, Eva Miranda
I have been making jewelry for twenty years, working with a variety of mediums, including textiles, shells, gemstones and brass. Cowrie shells are my favorite! They represent the divine feminine, communication with spirits, and abundance, all themes that I love to embody and explore in my work. I am intentional about invoking certain energies in my pieces and this is how I weave spirit into the designs.
I am a San Francisco native, daughter of South and Central American, and Greek parents. My cultural identity, as well as my extensive travels in the Caribbean and Africa, greatly shape my artistic expression. Elements of the earth, particularly the ocean, are deep sources of inspiration.
Earth Majesty has been featured in events internationally in Greece and St. Lucia, as well as numerous local shows and festivals. You can also find my work at select Bay Area retailers (check the Stockists page for current locations).
Jewelry has been valued from ancient times and across all cultures as divine adornment. My intention is for my pieces to honor sacred connection and enhance the wearers’ experience of spirit and beauty.

Some say it originally comes from the area of Turkey and Greece, but can be seen in art, architecture, jewelry and design throughout the world.
