TroppoBella's Shop Announcement

Let them know just how beautiful you are!

ABOUT ME: I studied Fashion Design in Italy, and have always been inspired by the fabrics and lines of haute couture, namely Pucci, Chanel, Lagerfeld, McQueen, and Gaultier (among many others). I'm also influenced by my natural surroundings in California, mainly, the trees, flowers, succulents, birds, shells, butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, bees, mountains, and, of course, the Pacific ocean. All of these influences can be espied in various aspects of my work.

JEWELRY: I began making jewelry when I was 12. I started with Swarovski crystals and by age 15, I was soldering silver. My jewelry is almost always one of a kind in color, pattern, and stone or bead selection. Allow one of these special adornments to make you feel so beautiful that you are almost (as the Italians say) "troppo bella", too beautiful, and that you are.

HOME DECOR: My home decor offerings are selected for their retro appeal, or whatever has inspired my creative passions at the moment. I love upcycling items to bring them into the 21st century, encrusting items with glorious shells, collaging with vintage images, and anything that exudes femininity, modernity, mystery, and intrigue.

PHOTOGRAPHY: My photography focuses on the fluid and/or architectural dimensions of the botanical world, their vibrant hues, the worlds within worlds that one finds only by delving deep inside the petals. I even try to capture their aromas with my beloved Nikons. (Is it working?) For more of my photogra[hy, please become a fan on Facebook:

VINTAGE: I love, love, love it! Don't you? I am madly passionate about fashion in general, and just love how well-made lotehs and accessories were in the past. I am very choosy bout what vintage I bring into my shop, and let you know dimensions, measurements, and every inute detail, so that you are bound to be very happy about your purchases.

ORGANIC SOY CANDLES: I love taking a vintage container (a glass, a ceramic box, a vintage tin, or a brassbowl) and filling it with a delightful candle. When the candle has buned all it's wax, you still have a lovely container to use as you wish. Simply washit with hot water, and use away...

So, come one, come all, and enter my creative realm. You won't be sorry...
