Most of my pieces are one-of-a-kind statement necklaces made from tagua nuts. Tagua nuts are eco-friendly, organic nuts that come from palm trees in the rainforest. The nuts are dried, sliced/cut into various shapes and dyed. I then combine different textures, colors, shapes and sizes to create unique, mosaic, one-of-a-kind creations.

I have been doing this exact style of jewelry for many years (you can check my "sold" category) and have perfected the designs to lay flat, evenly spaced, evenly weighted and proportioned. I have a background in interior design so I take special care to make sure various colors and shapes are distributed in an artistic manner and hang perfectly balanced on your neck.

PLEASE do not copy my designs. I spend great amounts of time perfecting each piece and take great pride in my work. It can take hours, days, weeks to finalize a brand new design and source the right shape, size and color. Please respect that. All designs have my copyright and legal action will be pursued for copyright infringement through the firm of Richards Patent Law, Chicago, IL.

I have plenty of bracelets and earrings but not enough time to list them! Feel free to convo me if you are looking for something specific and I can probably make it for you.

If you are looking for something that no longer is listed, please feel free to convo me.
