ABOUT

HELLO! MY NAME IS SHAE AND I AM THE MAKER OF PAPER PAPAYAS.

PAPER PAPAYAS IS A SMALL BLACK WOMAN OWNED BUSINESS, SPECIALIZING IN CARIBBEAN INSPIRED HANDMADE ACCESSORIES.

OUR JEWELRY IS INSPIRED BY CULTURE AND THE BEAUTIFUL , STRONG WOMEN IN MY GENEALOGY ARE THE MUSE. I AM A FIRST GENERATION TRINIDADIAN AMERICAN - SO EVERYTHING THAT CONNECTS ME TO THE HOME OF MY ANCESTORS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. I USE THESE ELEMENTS IN EVERY SINGLE PIECE THAT I MAKE- IT ALL HAS A SIGNIFICANT MEANING.

 

MY GOAL HERE IS NOT TO JUST PROVIDE BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY BUT I WANT EVERYONE WHO WEARS MY JEWELRY TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND CAREFREE. I WANT MY JEWELRY TO EMPOWER BUT ALSO ALLOW VULNERABILITY. NOT ONLY SHARE MY CULTURE WITH OTHERS BUT ALSO CONNECT THEM WITH THEIR OWN CULTURE AS WELL.

THANK YOU FOR BEING APART OF THE JOURNEY.
