Behind every creation and every product you encounter, there is a hand story.

At Keyo, we love hands. Hands not only make us human but they also contain our identity. This week we have an interview from Olivia Cummings, a Jewelry Designer from Australia.

Check out her story below.

What do you do?

I make jewelry and tell stories.

Where are you based?

For now, Naples, Italy.

How did you get started?

I had a quarter life crisis and decided I needed to make more things with my hands, so I went to Istanbul and learned how to make jewelry.

What do you love most about doing what you do?

I have a wonderful team, I am free, and I make jewelry for wonderful people!

How do you mentally prepare to do what you do before you have to do it?

A strong cup of coffee, meditation, yoga.

What are some of your tips for other people to follow your path?

Follow your heart, not your head.

Any favorite books, songs, podcasts, shows?

"Women Who Run With the Wolves" and currently binging on the Oprah podcasts where she interviews lots of inspiring people.

What's identity to you?

Knowing your value system.
