Meet the Maker
Hello, my name is Kiara and I am the Founder + CEO of The Chiara Studio. I was born on the beautiful island of Guam (proud Pacific Islander!) and am currently living in Seattle, Washington.
I started my business ventures when the pandemic hit and shut down my full-time job. For the first time, I was forced to stop in my tracks and think about my life. After all, I was only 20 when my job closed and I had already been working nonstop for over 5 years!
I worked tirelessly through high school and a few years of college and because of that, I never had time for hobbies or really, any fun. Working was my personality. But suddenly I seemed to have all the time in the world!
I used my time to explore every hobby I could think of and decided that I did not want to go back to a 9-5. Eventually, I fell in love with candle making, concrete, and crochet, and turned this love and hobby into The Chiara Studio!
I spend my days creating things I truly love - putting hours, lots of love, and dedication into each piece - and I hope all of that shows in my products!
Like the "Chiara" in my name means in Italian - I hope my products brighten every inch of your daily life!
