During a career that included an internship in Entertainment Tonight’s Wardrobe Department, top honor’s graduate degree from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) in Los Angeles, Styling Consultant for Saks Fifth Avenue in both Beverly Hills (assistant) and Cherry Creek Denver, I had always dreamt about the idea of designing my own line of fine jewelry.   It was a dream without a clear vision until the birth of my first daughter, Giuliana.  In searching for a piece that would symbolize this most significant addition to my life, I found that birthstones and engraved pieces were the only customizable pieces for new mothers.  I wanted a piece of fine jewelry that would be beautiful and subtle, special and simple.  I designed the Bar Pendant with 8 diamonds, one for each letter of her name.  This would be the first piece designed in what has now become a line that was inspired by what I feel for Giuliana, unconditional love.  Out of that necklace came a line of beautiful customizable pieces designed to signify the people, moments and milestones that mean most in life. With daughter #2's recent arrival, I look forward to expanding the line with pieces inspired by her… our sweet Layla Grace.
