Janja Watson

Owner, Creative Director

Hi, my name is Janja Watson (Yanya). I’m the owner and creative force behind Jewel Web & Design. As a graphic and web designer with several years of experience in this field, I am happy to work with you on your website and graphic design needs.

Originally from Switzerland, I got a degree as a master jeweler and eventually a gemology degree in the US. I had been a jeweler for over 17 years, when the slow economy and my love for creation drew me back to school to get my graphic and web design degree.

In 2008, I opened my own business Jewel Web & Design. I enjoy the creative aspect of the business as well as the interaction with my clients. Creating beautiful looking websites and designs with great customer service is my mission.

Always innovative, always out of the box, his knowledge and ethics have been a big part of our theme and plug-in development.
