Buddha Mama is handmade jewelry influenced by Buddhism and Eastern traditions. The collection is rooted in the philosophy of contribution. Looking for a way to raise funds for her local Buddhist Center, founder Nancy Badia began making and selling bracelets at her kitchen table in order to contribute profits from their sale. Many years and collections later, the company has evolved into an exquisite fine jewelry line. Working with one of her daughters, jewelry designer Dakota Badia, Buddha Mama continues to expand its designs. Close friends and family help run the company, making the business feel more like a family gathering. Buddha Mama continues to give back proceeds from sales to Tibet House and Kristi House, and will continue to assist those in need as opportunities arise.
