THE 44 MILES JEWELRY COLLECTION
The name Jamaica is derived from the original Taino word Xaymaca, meaning “land of wood and water.” Jamaica is well known for its natural beauty and many artistes have taken advantage of such in their work. The jewelry is made by a Jamaican artisan - Courtney of 44 Miles. The ideas for the jewelry pieces came from Courtney's’ life experiences, and heavily from the natural environment. The name of the business pays homage to the Black River, which runs for 44 miles before emptying into the Caribbean sea in her home town Black River. Fortyfour Miles values family and community, and is a cottage industry.
