Featured Exhibitor: Flaranto Jewelry


Inspired by her twin boys and her family history of master jewelers, Myriam Kinde began crafting colorful beaded jewelry. She started Flaranto Jewelry in 2017 after ten years of experience creating one-of-a-kind pieces and learning everything she could about the art of jewelry making. We love her detailed work, and the joy she finds in the selection of her stones and beads is apparent in every adornment she makes.



Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Myriam Kinde. I'm a handmade Jewelry Designer and maker.

Will you be featuring any special holiday items?

I'll be presenting handmade bracelets with Christmas beads. Because I design and make my own items, I can say they're all special items.

What do your customers love the most about your products?

The uniqueness and my art of matching the colors.I also try to use beads that are of uncommon shapes or tell a particular story.


Have you always been passionate about art and design?

I have loved decorating since I was little. My passion for designing jewelry started after I gave birth to my twin boys.

Is this a full-time business for you?

No. I have a full-time job as a Systems Analyst for a bank.

What is your favorite item that you sell?

My handmade stretchy Essential Oil Bracelet


Why did you start working in this particular craft?

I got the inspiration from my mother. I'll also admit that both my grandfather and my uncle were goldsmiths, so I can say it runs in the family.

What do you think sets your design apart from others?

The creativity in my design. Plus my aim to always use high quality materials in my design.

Where did your business name come from? Is there an interesting story behind it?

Flaranto is an anagram of my twin boys' names.

How did you get started in your business?

After a very complicated pregnancy, I was with memory loss issues (like putting car keys in the microwave lol) to which my doctor suggested some craft activities might help. My mom who was helping me with the young kids then, gave me the idea of trying jewelry.
