About

I wake up in the morning obsessed with my findings, beads, gemstones and treasures and fall asleep at night dreaming about designs and creations.
Obsessed with life and the magic of our existence on this planet, I am in awe every time I observe elements in nature and the way time affects them. Time, never stopping for anything or anyone.
The palettes of nature engulf me into the very question of their existence.
Moods affected by instances and moments of my life are translated into my creations.
I am drawn to life around me. This is what feeds my passion to design. A need to express visually what I can't always say in words.

I am drawn to life around me. This is what feeds my passion to design. A need to express visually what I can't always say in words.

I was born in Belgium and lived in many different parts of Belgium and France. Fell in love with a French man in Paris, privileging me with the experiences of living in Paris, Brittany, and Normandy.
My European background and travels around the world in my youth, as well as presently, have influenced my work enormously.
I have had the privilege of being exposed to a variety of cultures in such countries as Africa, Israel, Greece, Italy, amongst many others.
I have been surrounded by art and jewelry since I was young. Growing up surrounded with a fine jewelry, family business in Antwerp, Belgium, I was always mesmerized by the beauty of jewels as a child.
This part of my life was followed by a major move to New York City.
I was immersed into the "art world" in Manhattan through my father's dream to become an art collector, open up a gallery, and take part in the influence visual arts has on the world.
My passion for art drove me to Parson's School of Design, where I studied graphic design and photography, in Manhattan and in Paris.
My background, education, work in photography and fine arts has inspired me to establish the company "Passionately Created."

The relationship a person has with jewelry is an intimate one.
Beads, pearls, gemstones, fine metals, amongst other mediums, have been used to adorn the human being since the birth of our kind.
Jewelry has been believed to give special powers in the past and throughout time to the one that wears them, bringing such things as long life, protection of evil, and love, as well as beauty.
We have created jewels since ancient time and used them in celebration of life. This has enabled us to discover cultures and customs of the past. Jewelry has given us proof of existence.
Stones and beads have stayed with people from birth to their death, and sometimes, there after, only to enable us to have that magical relationship with jewelry.
The connection we have with jewels is a private one, yet sensual one.
The colors, textures, reflections of light in a piece jewelry can be magical, but the feel of the materials used is something that is eternally connected to the power of the work of art.
Not only does a jewel make one feel radiant and beautiful, but there is an mysterious, inevitable bond between the owner and the piece.
Besides the value of making us gorgeous and graceful inside and out, jewelry is a collectable and can always be passed on in generations, with a story to tell….

My daughters, sons and dear husband are my accomplices in this indulgence of creation. In the realization of "Passionately Created."
All my senses are captivated in designing for "Passionately Created." In its purest form, this is "Art from the Heart."
There aren't enough minutes in the day to create enough styles to reach out and touch every emotion within every one of you potential collectors, to touch every artist that lies within you.
This is just a drop in the ocean, but here at "Passionately Created," we hope you will come explore the depths of our ocean, wear our art, with passion, and through this, radiate and transmit the beauty of life.
