The Journey

Making the Jewelry


The Budaya lifestyle brand was born in 2021 with a simple mission in mind.  “To connect you with beautiful,  consciously chosen, energy rich jewelry.  Jewelry that has been especially created to reflect your uniqueness and style, and to be with you on your journey through life.  All whilst supporting philanthropic missions around the globe.”  

It’s that intention and thought of Budaya that helps to give people around the world a sense of hope and happiness.  After all, it was the many diverse cultures across the world that planted the seeds for the Budaya lifestyle jewelry brand.

Curated Jewelry Handcrafted to Enhance Your Life…

Budaya Life is a celebration and appreciation of your unique culture and your personal journey through life.   Curated, handcrafted jewelry that enhances both your life and the life of the artisans who created it.  Every piece we offer from the simple to the complex brings with it its own unique identity.  We constantly prioritize the use of sustainable materials and methods that include but are not limited to: semi-precious stones,  beads, naturally dyed rope, fibers and much much more.

“Budaya Life jewelry is a reflection of your personal style and beautiful vibe, so there is always a Budaya Life jewelry piece that will make the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.” 

The connection is real. It’s what happens when you wear your favorite piece of Budaya Life jewelry – you not only look good but you feel great too grounded in the knowledge that a portion of your purchase of this wonderful handcrafted jewelry  goes toward helping artisans and people in need from around the world.

The Budaya Life Style


“Authenticity speaks”

The Budaya Lifestyle reflects the values and attitude we all share.   Brought together through a collective consciousness that naturally attracts like minded and caring people together.   As globally minded individuals,  we celebrate our own unique cultures and identities, while embracing our personal journey through life.

“What you stand for is always of most importance”  

Do you feel that you embrace the Budaya Lifestyle? If so, then with open arms, we say “Welcome to the Tribe!”.  Together, lets share this journey and help to make the world a better place.

Current Focus: El Salvador

In mid-late 2021, our founder spent time in a remote area of El Salvador called Las Flores, which is part of the town, El Cuco.

While visiting, he got to know many of the locals. Stories were shared. Some of those stories included moments of happiness and celebration, while others included unimaginable moments that brought him to tears. 

His outlook was forever changed. .

The people he met, and got to know, all wear a smile on their face and welcome visitors with whole hearts. However sadly, many of these wonderful souls lack the basic everyday essentials that many of us take for granted. Our founder witnessed first hand entire families living in tin-roof shacks made of tree branches and tarps with no plumbing or even electricity. .  Questioning these conditions,  he felt that no one should be living like that. However with little to no opportunity for the residents to make a decent living, any hope for change seemed almost impossible.  It was then that Budaya Life was born.

The current social mission of Budaya Life, is to help El Salvadorian families in need. A portion of all sales on this website will be allocated toward philanthropic initiatives in El Salvador.

In the coming years, as Budaya Life grows, we plan to expand our mission of improving lives and helping to create livelihoods for underserved communities across the world.

Thank you for reading and being a part of the Journey!
