Jewelry Inspiration:

Goddess Crowns Jewelry came to me as a Divine download after doing a prosperity meditation. I had an inspired idea and decided to act on it. I learned that this was a hidden talent that I had no idea I could bring forth. It was one example of listen to the inner voice telling me to do something I had never done before. I felt there was a calling, and a tapping on my life that I couldn’t ignore. So I leaped into it. I went from writing down every idea that came to me, I then started buying materials and made my first Goddess Crowns and starting selling them all over the course of 3 days. I went from a Ziploc bag with a few crowns to carrying a small basket with jewelry items for sell, to vending and to teaching jewelry making workshops and integrating my jewelry inside of in retail locations.

Coaching & Workshops Inspiration:

I started my self-care like coaching after meeting so many women who were struggling with keeping a consistent practice of self-care, as well as struggling with their courage to take action towards their dreams and their calling in life. After getting countless confirmations from women I have impacted in my life who would say that, I should be a life coach, I decided to make that a reality. I’ve been a workshop facilitator for years through my previous work in health education, youth development, social justice and personal development. My desire is to continue the service as a workshop facilitator holding space for self-empowerment


Braiding/Hair Crowning Inspiration:

Braiding has been a part of my life since I was a child. From practicing my first braid on my grandmothers hair, to my baby dolls, to my own hair and then others. I have been providing braiding and natural hair styling services to other for 15 years. I often get asked the question, “who taught you how to braid,” and my reply is “no one, it was something I just knew how to do…” I take pride in braiding being a part of my DNA, it is something I remembered from my ancestors.

In 2016, I decided to combine all the ways I serve within what I call inner and outer care. The jewelry, hair braiding/crowning services are outer care for women. The coaching and workshops are inner care and both combined create a holistic (mental, spiritual, and physical) approach to self-care and honoring the Divine Goddess. Goddess Crowns By Nakia is a holistic service provided for women to empower themselves from the inside out!
