Welcome to Inspiring Woman, a semi-monthly column that features amazing and inspiring women. These women are moms, community leaders, entrepreneurs, or everyday heroes‚ each is making her corner of the world a better place.

I’m delighted to introduce you to Mia van Beek of Formia Designs.
Mia’s favorite thing about designing jewelry? The personal connection. She doesn’t create a huge array of pieces, but the ones she does bend and cut by hand are made especially for each client.
