In Slavic myths, Baba Yaga is a wild woman/dark lady of magic, and in Russian folklore, a scary witch! Baba Yaga is interesting because, although she is described as a terrifying old witch, she is still wise and powerful; wild, cruel but sometimes also kind.
Baba Yaga links the wise women of early myths and the witches of folk tales, which creates a really powerful blend of feminine energy and mystery. Her home is a hut deep in a birch forest, in a place that is difficult to find, unless a magic thread, feather, or doll shows the way. It stands on large chicken legs and can move about, fleeing in the dead of night through the dark forest!
My understanding is that it is unclear whether Baba Yaga was good or evil, but the interpretation of her story now lies in the hands of those who wear this piece and continue to tell her story!
Designed for the wild woman in all of us, the Baba Yagas are handcrafted to represent powerful feminine spirit and mystery.

Meesha personally designs her jewelry line with the intention of creating high-quality fashion accessories that are comfortable enough for everyday use. All clay components are conditioned, measured, cut, cured, buffed and assembled by hand in Austin, Texas.
These accessories are meant to withstand everyday wear and tear, but are still tiny works of art that deserve to be handled with care. We recommend keeping any jewelry in a hard shell container while in purses or during travel to ensure they stay protected. The clay is water-resistant, but the brass and gold components shouldn't be submerged into water for long periods of time.
All clay items that are made-to-order: This means that everything is made by hand and assembled once your order is placed! Because of this, please allow up to 5 business days (Monday - Friday) for handmade production, before items are shipped off with tracking.
***Please note: Any orders placed after 12 pm Friday, will not be produced/shipped until the following next business day(s). For example, an order placed on a Saturday will not begin being produced until Monday. It takes between 1-3 days to make your order by hand, depending on production schedule. Once this is made and completed, then your item will be shipped based on your preferred method of shipping.***
