About me:
I am New York City based self taught jewelry designer. I started making jewelry at the very early age of ten years old. My love for jewelry was born as a way to pass the time while trying to adjust to life in the big apple.

I was introduced to jewelry making via my father, a Civil Engineer, who started making jewelry many years before I did, when he discovered an abandoned tool box decked out with beads and pliers at a construction site.

At the time when he made his discovery, I was still living in the Dominican Republic, my country of birth, with my mother. He made earrings using glass drops and vintage buttons which he turned into post earrings and attached ear clips. All his…

About me:
I am New York City based self taught jewelry designer. I started making jewelry at the very early age of ten years old. My love for jewelry was born as a way to pass the time while trying to adjust to life in the big apple.

I was introduced to jewelry making via my father, a Civil Engineer, who started making jewelry many years before I did, when he discovered an abandoned tool box decked out with beads and pliers at a construction site.

At the time when he made his discovery, I was still living in the Dominican Republic, my country of birth, with my mother. He made earrings using glass drops and vintage buttons which he turned into post earrings and attached ear clips. All his creations were sent to my mother in the Dominican Republic for her to sell and they were very very popular.

After a few years, we had reunited with him in New York and by then he had decided to devote all his time to his newly formed construction business and I took over the pliers and beads and that is when my passion for jewelry began.

About the jewelry created by me:
Every piece of jewelry in my collections has been created to bring an aura of sensuality and romance to each woman wearing it and each piece is one of a kind even when it is part of a limited edition collection. My jewelry line has been inspired mainly by my cultural background, my travels and of course my life experience living in the multi-cultural city of New York.
