Handmade Jewelry | Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Buddha Mama is a handmade jewelry line inspired by Buddhism and Eastern
traditions. The collection is rooted in the philosophy of contribution and all started
at the kitchen table. Looking for a way to raise funds for her local Buddhist
center, Zen Village, Nancy Badia began stringing beads and selling bracelets in
order to contribute her profits from their sale.
After spending 25 years working side by side with her husband, building their
family business, Nancy decided it was time to embrace life in a more creative way
while continuing to honor her spirituality. Thus, Buddha Mama was born. Nancy
and team began traveling the world in search of stones, carvings and artisans
who could become creative partners and allow her to bring her renderings to life.

Several years and collections later, Buddha Mama has evolved into a fully
expressed and unique jewelry line that is carried by boutique, traditional and
independent stores across the country, with pieces in each collection that speak
to every woman. With one of her daughters by her side, jewelry designer, Dakota
Badia, the designs continue to expand and seem endless. Close friends and
family help run the company in a way that seems more like a family gathering
than anything else.
“To be able to do what we love and give back in the process is the biggest
blessing anyone could ask for.”
