"Magic, to me, is creating an unprecedented image in your head and bringing that image to life through creation."
Handbag Designer Glaja Mayne was born in the beautiful paradise of Kingston, Jamaica, and raised in the tropical oasis of Miami, Florida. As a young child, she was intrigued with colors, fabrics and designing and started making clothes and handbags for herself and friends. This fascination fueled her creativity where she developed her taste for fabrics and appreciation of detail and quality in craftsmanship and most of all her passion to design. She inevitably became one of the most sought after handbag designers in South Florida. Today, she is nationally renowned for her unique handcrafted handbags bursting with rich fabrics, dazzling jewels, exotic stones, and hand-painted designs emulating her Caribbean roots and art-deco upbringing.
