Jewelry for Wherever Life Finds You

During my travels, the jewelry indigenous to whatever locality I was visiting never failed to inspire and intrigue me. I delightfully discovered that Kenyan jewelry is distinctively different to Mexican jewelry which is uniquely different to Egyptian jewelry craftsmanship, which is different to Hawaiian…. Gemstone treasures that I thoughtfully procured during my wanderlust years spoke not only of my love of the fresh designs that I was introduced to but also captured the essence of that destination into a wearable memory.

Perhaps on a subconscious level, creating jewelry is a way for me to reach out and open the door to the vault of those memories. Bali beads incorporated in my collections commemorate distant, exotic lands and my labor intensive woven gemstone pieces are inspired by beadwork native to Africa and Mexico. And yet, the design component that has always moved me most is the human element—jewelry crafted attentively by human hands, inspired by human hearts. Gentle nuances in craftsmanship are a reminder of this and what the artisan considered design-worthy.

I have since learned that, because life itself is a journey, the treasures we collect along the way are mementos of our inspirational ‘destinations.’ The places we find ourselves without having to leave home. Each new piece of gemstone jewelry that is added to our collection bears witness to our ever evolving aesthetic, encounters with fresh design perspectives and celebrates the moments—however big or small—where life finds us. They invite us to treat every day as an adventure.

Blessings on your journey!

Additional policies and FAQs

Please become familiar with the measurements provided in the item description of the jewelry that interests you. Photos have been enlarged to show the cut, clarity, color and inclusion of the gemstones.


Because moisture is what tarnishes sterling silver, vermeil and gold-filled jewelry, take care not to wear your Laguna Gems in the water or during strenuous exercise. When not wearing, keep your jewelry in a zip-lock plastic baggy to prevent moisture in the air tarnishing your jewelry.

Gold plated items and gold vermeil should not be worn in the shower or the ocean as it can quickly fade the gold finish.

Take care when cleaning your jewelry. Many of the jewelry cleaners on the market contain harsh solvents which can corrode pearls and strip gold from vermeil. If you don't already have a product that is safe to use, ask a local jeweler for a recommendation as they should be knowledgeable on the topic and know the products available in your area.
