My family and friends incentivated me to show my work beyond frontiers and here I am, revamping and reinventing jewelry and accessories from a fusion of vintage and contemporary parts. This includes Portuguese Folk jewelry, which is now a big part of my work. Some accessories have a vintage glamour, yet adapted to modern fashion. "The only one Worldwide" in Art and Portugal sections of my shop.
To complement my preferences for vintage, the shop has also vintage and retro originals in clothing and accessories at a low budget. Specially for those like me that love to find something unusual, make a statement and be eco friendly in a world of mass production.

Glamour to go around the globe !
