You know I have my own radio show right? If not, now you know! The Show is called Hidden Gems with Maya and it’s on Women’s Radio Station, the Voice of Women worldwide.

The show is designed to showcase extraordinary women from mine to market. Women who work and actively participate in the world of mining, gemstones and jewellery.

+ Carol, Jewellery Designer and Business Owner, French based in London

I’m also incredibly excited to announce I’ve secured interviews with a whole host of additional women #doingthemost in their respective roles in our industry. Watch this space for more!

Also, guess what? My Producer is a woman. My Sound Engineer is a Woman. My interviewees are women. I am a woman surrounded by phenomenal women. For women, by women.
