Interview with Georgian Self-taught Jewelry Designer Maia Mikashavidze
Tell us about yourself, your background and the place where you live.
I am a psychologist by professional background and I have ten years of musical education. It may sound surprising but I ran a successful pharmacy business for almost twelve years. I was never thought of by anyone as being capable of creating luxury jewelry and I do not have any formal education in jewelry making. However since a very young age I've been distinctive from others by my individualism. I never wanted to be like anyone else, I loved dressing with taste and differently. In other words, I had almost all the qualities, creative talent and desire that were necessary for my present work.

Despite my last name I have always been a highflying Eagle as opposed to another ‘quacking’ duck at the duck pond! I believe I was born to do business, but in my own way.
