My name is Jaliya
Welcome to Wild Honey
My inspiration for this project came from craving more creativity in my life, and with the uncertainty surrounding COVID, I decided there was no better time than now to create something for myself.
I had a handful of projects that I wanted to start, and was inspired by makers online who were creating fun jewelry from polymer clay. So while I was in the Yukon for the summer of 2020, I planned out my projects, and gathered ideas, so that when I came home I had something to land on.
And now my design process is being fuelled by finding happiness amidst the weird times we’re living in. I started my business whiling living offgrid in a cozy mountain cabin near Nelson BC with my partner and puppy. Living and creating offgrid had its quirks but I learned so much. My business was entirely offgrid, our power supply was solar and a generator, and woodfire!
I am now living nomadically in Northern BC, currently located in Hazelton.
My intention with Wild Honey is to nurture a creative outlet, which in time, hopefully can unfold into new exciting projects.
