Hello Goddesses, have 15 minutes? I’m often asked what is Goddess Glamour? The myths, the meaning, and the beliefs of the Goddess have often been questioned. My personal journey for the Goddess image is reflected in the stories I have learned, offering inner peace and connections to life on this sacred planet. I believe today’s Goddess is a Change Maker - a Thinker, helping to restore balance, providing wholeness and peace to the world.


Many of my clients have asked me why I design jewelry. Why do I love to style them? My simple answer: There are no rules to fashion or styling. This question isn’t answered with a simple set of do’s and don'ts. Fashion, which I love, is really all about self expression! Like music, theatre and art, I adore helping women to develop their personal style of their very own. This is what and why Fashion is so exciting to me!


Jewelry cost is often challenging. The process to design high vibrational collectibles jewelry is exacting, where every detail is noticed, with grand efforts to create a silken surface to hold the designs’ fine details. These are my criterias, my foundation to develop each piece for my High Collections. This simple fact is the guiding force to ensure both Beauty with Quality to all my designs. The whole point of wearing Costume jewelry is to have fun dressing up! Not having to worry about purchasing expensive jewelry.   To do so, I have found that Costume jewelry is very often Expensive!


Frequently, I traveled to Asia and Europe and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the French Riviera with friends. Many enjoyed the glamour of relaxing in the sun while having fun wearing bikinis with expensive bijou on their necks, arms and ears, exuding a relaxed European style. Their statement gems evoked my Spirit to develop a new frontier for jewelry adornment. “Why not design gems that will sparkle with delight when worn for todays’ Goddesses,” said I. This was the beginning for my concepts - High Jewelry that would be beautiful and wearable, affordable and best of all, l Spiritual. I began looking at my Collections as I touched the pieces I adored, such as my fun piece - the tiger tooth hanging on a golden chain. I began innovating fun motifs of pendants with horns, stars, Goddesses, and of course, eye charms with stones embedded in colorful settings that I have carefully selected. Years later I discovered the writings of Karl Langerfeld for Black Diamonds that mirrored my thoughts exactly, “Black diamonds are rare, hard to cut, and therefore uncommercial.” This was the perfect statement for the Goddess “Empress” to wear them!
