MaeRahKee Custom Beaded Jewelry and More originated as waist beads and grew to be so much more. The name came from the term, "Meraki" which means to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself in your work, and that is exactly what we do when creating your beads.
To differentiate ourselves, MaeRahKee was created. Mae is in dedication to the creators grandmother who recently transitioned and who she loved dearly. Rah is light and Kee is truth. We are still able to hold true the original definition, while also adding light and truth to our creations.
MaeRahKee uses numerology, color meanings, and affirmations so that you draw positivity energy unto you which exudes to others.
