About Adorned In Taji
Adorned In Taji creates adornments that enhance your personal power, aiding your Spirit to manifest your intentions. Our pieces are intuitively designed and carefully handcrafted with nature’s raw materials, including ethical gemstones, cowrie, metals, and wood.
Taji means Crown in Kiswahili. The divine aesthetic that makes Adorned In Taji pieces so recognizable is channeled from a place long-forgotten, a place where the royal blood flowing through our veins was honored and revered. A place of love.
It’s an honor to adorn Royals — no matter your age nor gender — and to offer multi-dimensional pieces that complement a variety of styles, from casual to black-tie. If you let it, Adorned In Taji amplifies your Royal.
Adorned In Taji came to be when multifaceted Creative and Healing Arts Jeweler, NayMarie, sought alternative methods to help heal, uplift, and empower her community. “I’ve rarely been attracted to the road most traveled. Once I discovered that 90% of the knowledge I learned in school was useless or false, I started looking into preventative healthcare, multiple streams of income, and how to welcome peace into my life.”
“This led me to one of my favorite gifts from Gaia – gemstones. I’ve never been stingy with information, so I share with those who are willing to receive and want to live their best lives.”
Nay developed a passion for adorning Royals in treasures from the Earth. Seeing the instant confidence boost and hearing them say that they felt like royalty while watching the way they finessed a mirror or an Instagram video literally swelled her heart and reinforced that she is here to be a catalyst in the prosperity of those in her tribe.
Plus they kept coming back and asking for more pieces, so Nay continued to create them and officially launched Adorned In Taji in June 2019. “I was introduced to creating jewelry when I aimed to helped my Mom launch her business. She went down another path, but I never looked back.”
Nay is most proud of how our Royals have used their Adornments to better their lives. At minimum, when they get Adorned In Taji, there is a confidence boost that they carry with them throughout the day. At their peak, they are making conscious changes for the betterment of their lives.
One thing that sets Adorned In Taji apart is that our mannequin, Shanta Thonga, is bald so she helps our Bald Royals and those living with Alopecia know that the Adornments they’re eyeing will indeed accentuate their beauty. They get to feel seen and celebrated.
NayMarie is also the founder of the Black culture publication Taji Mag, a visionary photographer, and a dreamer.
