The Journey

Making the Jewelry


The Budaya lifestyle brand was born in 2021 with a simple mission in mind.  “To provide you with beautiful,  consciously selected jewelry, reflecting your unique culture and identity, embracing your personal 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 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 jewelry is a reflection of your personal style and beautiful vibe, so there is always a Budaya 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 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.

Budaya Culture


“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 citizens of the world,  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 embrace the Budaya Lifestyle? If so, welcome to the family and let’s help to make this world a better place together through Budaya!

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 was worn.

The current social mission of Budaya, 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 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!
