Her accessory style – a combination of classic simplicity with edgy glamour, exudes striking star quality. Celebrities and Miami socialites such as Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, and Christina Rice are ardent fans and part of her loyal customer base.

When I travel, which I do quite often, I bring a select few pieces as my ‘go to’ pieces. My favourite travel tip is to bring a bunch of my bracelets and stack them depending on the occasion and activity.
I especially like beads while I’m lounging at the beach or pool. If I don’t intend to go into the water, I will stack some of my Macrame Bracelets. The cuff appears understated while the diamonds sparkle and glisten in the sunlight, perfect for a look of casual sophistication. At night, I add in the Silver and Gold Infinity Cuffs. Mixing metals and themes is my demonstration of ‘organized chaos’.
When I’m hiking, I typically just wear a simple earring or necklace, but at night I razzle and dazzle with my statement pieces. My evening look tends to be edgier, and whether it’s studs or hooped earrings, I’ll add my 5 Row Gold and Diamond Ear Cuff for a bit of extra sass.
While on vacation in the Caribbean, I pair feminine flowing silhouettes with my signature Feather-moon Stone Diamond Earrings for an allure of understated glamour and Stencil Bracelets which are strung with brown agate beads for a bohemian flair.”
