The High Priestess Invite to Joy

The High Priestess Collection

The Bracelet- My stepping stones I don for Imperial Power.

The Necklace- I wear my Amulet as a potent majesty to empower me.

The Coin- I wear my coin as a potent majesty to empower me. My life compass helps keep me on course.


The Seduction- As soon as the car enters the driveway of Villa d’Este to the open gates, Lake Como's sapphire blue water evokes serenity, peace and calm. This setting greets me singularly from my other travels, to be here is to experience “Heaven on Earth!” I spend days lounging by the pool under the colorful umbrellas, often inviting friends and family to rendez-vous with me over leisurely lunches of fresh pasta and fish. With Lake Como as the backdrop, this is the true meaning of joy.


I’m inspired by Villa d’Este’s 25 acres of enchanted gardens replete with gorgeous sculptures, sumptuous flowers and of course, the magical Lake Como itself. The hotel was originally built in 1568 as the summer home of Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. In the 1800’s, it was a place recognized for the aristocracy to rejuvenate and retreat...the perfect place for me to recharge!


Even though Lake Como is known as a respite, there are many romantic day trips to be had On one special afternoon, Peter and I drove to Switzerland. We stopped in the nearby town of Bellagio, known for its cobbled streets and architecture, where we enjoyed lunch at the local trattoria after visiting amazing 18th century terraced gardens. The Villa Serbelloni is a big art scene in Bellagio, home to The Tower of the Arts, a venue for exhibitions and performances and the Romanesque San Giacomo Church. My favorite exhibition in The Museum of Navigational Instruments showcased the history of sundials and compasses. My Master Leung bestowed his compass upon his passing, helping me guide my clients on their life path.


What to Wear, Where- Lake Como is the sophisticated European enclave.   There's no shortage of celebrity sightings. I like to keep my daytime attire simple, often wearing an elegant caftan for afternoon strolls, light linen frocks with silk scarves, large dramatic hats and of course, my High Eponymous Collection are part of this fanfare.   You never know who you may bump into while star gazing on the villa's terraces; and you always want to be fashionably attired. Perfect and a favorite of mine is the Sacred Eye necklace, with a unique mixture of luxurious black diamonds accented with blue sapphires.   The eye symbol is my homage to the Roman Goddess Architecture and History, offering you Protection and Love to wear each day.
