Nature-Inspired Handmade Jewelry
Every piece of jewelry I design is inspired by the vibrant unchained spirit of the Brazilian island where I was born. The sparkling beauty of the beaches, and the power of the ocean all come alive in my work. Now I live in the Sierra Nevada mountains where I am surrounded by a different type of nature. This rugged landscape of mountain lakes and stunning alpine meadows also informs my craft.
I love to transform rough gemstones into jewelry that enhances the beauty of the women who wear them.
I am passionate about supporting other women. Growing up in Brazil I was surrounded by strong women like my mother and grandmother. I want my work to help women express themselves, to show off their style, depth, strength and their own natural beauty. Rough, color-rich gemstones like citrine, quartz, tourmaline, amethyst remind me of the hard journeys we go through, and the polished stones sing of beauty and serenity and shine with hope of things to come.
My jewelry makes me feel beautiful and bold...rugged and raw…refined and romantic. I hope my jewelry can do the same for you.
