Onyx. Agate. Pearl. Amber. Pyrite. Malachite.
I’ve streamlined my designs, making them less chunky and heavy by focusing on the delicateness of the materials themselves. I moved everything from gold-plated to 14k gold-filled and sterling silver, so the metals don’t tarnish (or react harshly to sensitive skin).
MUSE, Summer & Fall 2015
Lapis. Onyx. Coral. Pearl. Amber. Goldstone. Turquoise.
This is the year of mermaids, goddesses and Amazon princesses. Inspired by nature and its elements, I wanted to tap into the beauty of natural gemstones. Sourcing for high-quality gemstones, I found these (mostly) vintage beads, with elegant facets and deep, vibrant colors that took fashion jewelry to the next level.
