About

△▼△ It was my love for traveling ...△▼△

My passion for traveling led me indirectly to Jewelry making since was the only way to afford it. I would spend hours and hours sitting on the streets of the visited countries selling my jewelry in order to pay for food and bed. And what started as a need for survival became a need for living.

Traveling I met my husband (after bumping into each other for years in different countries) and after living on an island on the French west coast for a few years we've moved to Paris to start a new life.

In 2005 I took a short silversmith course at the "Escuela de Artes Plasticas" in Taxco, Mexico (The mecca of silversmith in the country, you gotta go visit! it is such a beautiful village) but I would say that I am mostly self taught.

My work doesn't follow one particular design aesthetic but rather involves some form of technical experimentation, that's where I find the motivation for making every piece, and I have to say that my most beautiful creation so far is my 7 year old son...Teva.

I put my heart into every piece of jewelry I make, that is why for me they all tell a story, they are all unique, I hope you can feel that too...

IMPORTANT
I carefully craft each piece of my jewelry from recycled metals bought from a refiner who does not purchase metal from mines.

Sterling Silver is the same recycled or freshly mined, I've chosen recycled, or refined, to avoid any new mining (thus the destruction of the environment).

When ordering a ring, please be 100% sure of the ring size you need! There are a few ways to discover it, and most of them can be found at this website (copy and paste this address into your browser please):

J e w e l r y L o v e C a r e
For jewelry that has been oxidized I do not recommend liquid cleaners - they will remove the oxidization. Just buff gently with a polish, or "sunshine" cloth, you should be able to find one at a bead or jewelry store. Best way to keep your silver glowing? Wear it often, next to the skin!!

✩ Gold Filled / Gold Vermeil Jewelry (Yellow and Rose Gold) ✩
To prolong the life of your jewelry, do not wear your gold filled or gold vermeil jewelry in the shower, or when swimming or exercising. Also do not use jewelry cleaning substances on your gold filled or gold vermeil jewelry, as the gold layer may eventually wear away. Minimize your jewelry's contact to chemicals (lotion, hairspray, bleach, perfume, etc) to best maintain its shine. To store your gold filled / gold vermeil jewelry, wrap clean, dry jewelry in a dry, soft cloth and keep items separate to prevent tangling and scratching. To clean, mix mild soap, a drop of ammonia, and warm water. Gently swish the jewelry to clean, and then dry with a soft cloth (non-abrasive), and let it dry thoroughly.

✩ Sterling Silver Jewelry ✩
The best way to prevent tarnishing (oxidation) when not wearing your sterling silver jewelry is to store your clean, dry pieces in a dry, airtight container and keep items separate to prevent tangling and scratching. Avoid leaving your jewelry in that bathroom, as the moisture will speed up the oxidation process. Minimize your jewelry's contact to chemicals (lotion, hairspray, bleach, perfume, etc) to best maintain its shine.

To clean your sterling silver jewelry, use mild soap and water, a sterling silver polishing cloth, or a sterling silver jewelry cleaning solution. If using a cleaning solution, be careful to follow the directions and don't leave the jewelry in for too long. The one that I've found works best for removing the tarnish from sterling silver is Tarn-X, which is available at Walgreens or most hardware stores. You can also use it on your gold pieces, but be careful to gently wipe and quickly rinse well to avoid damaging the gold layer. Make sure to let your pieces dry thoroughly before storing them.

✩ Bronze and Copper Jewelry ✩
Some of my jewelry pieces have solid natural bronze or copper charms or pendants. Bronze and copper will darken over time as they form a patina. To clean and maintain the shine, follow the same instructions as for cleaning and storing sterling silver jewelry.

You can also spray CZ and other stone rings with Windex and then rinse off with hot water. Windex works great to remove "too tight" rings or put on a snug ring. Easy to slip on and off without using a sticky lotion.

✩ Brass
Care: Brass will tarnish over time, polish periodically with a sterling silver polishing cloth. Also, a light brushing with a very fine grit sandpaper will bring the teardrop back to its original golden color.
