Becky Steinhoff – Mystical Deva Jewelry

Becky Steinhoff has been creating pieces of jewelry since she was a little girl going to garage sales and buying old jewelry, taking it apart and redoing it. She still does repurpose old pieces but her main focus now is working with semi-precious gemstones and creating pieces that are inspired by nature. The name of her company, Mystical Deva, came about because she uses a lot of dragonflies and other creatures of nature as focal points. Deva means nature spirit. When she was a little girl she thought that dragonflies were created from combining fairies and dragons, therefore “mystical”.
