When Chaya Caron
was growing up, she wanted to be a zoologist. Through various life adventures, Chaya found herself designing and making jewelry in her studio in South Portland, Maine, where she is kept on task by two feline project supervisors: Everest and Tigger.
When she is not designing and crafting, Chaya enjoys spending time outdoors, running, biking, and hiking; though she's just as happy sharing a good bottle of wine with friends. Her favorite meal is one involving good company, and Chaya says that if she could have dinner with any famous person, it would be Bono. "His personality seems infectious," Chaya says. "I can imagine leaving dinner feeling inspired and ready to conquer the world!" Perhaps this choice of dinner date expresses one of her passions: making the world a happy place.
