For this resort collection she was inspired by the beach, beauty in naure. Her creations included statement necklaces with luminescent ammonite choctaw seashells on luxurious silk cords. All unique and handcrafted of course.
Utilizing the highest quality materials; 18 and 14 karat gold and sterling silver, she adeptly blends precious and semi-precious gemstones; diamonds, rubies, emeralds and pink tourmalines with organic materials; such as minerals, rocks and fossils to create her unique pieces. “Jewelry is very personal, wearable art. It is intimate because it is close to a woman, caressing her skin. That is why my jewelry is organic and not mass produced. Each piece has an individual nature that must speak directly to the woman who wears it, capturing her unique mood and essence.”
With her jewelry now gaining worldwide attention, the list of loyal celebrity and professional clients is growing quickly with luminaries like Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Rachel McAdams, Emily Blunt, Penelope Cruz, Halle Berry, Demi Moore, Mary J.

“A woman’s natural beauty can be illuminated with the right piece of jewelry. And that is my mission. To create jewelry that will make every woman look and feel uniquely beautiful.”
