So much of my design comes from my love of the Southwest United States, a place closely tied to both Mexican and Native American Cultures, whose colorful heritage and traditions inhabit many of my designs.
I've always had this unexplained fascination with the West, the idea of heading into an unknown territory filled with vast landscapes of indescribable beauty. Being from Southern California, I have been fortunate to take several trips throughout Arizona and New Mexico, places that heavily influence my design aesthetic - How can the beauty of the sun setting over the Grand Canyon not stir intense artistic passion? Photos from these trips still greatly inspire me!
Why the name 'California Chic and Sexy'?
Every woman deserves to feel good about herself and should always be adorned in beauty, proud of her sexuality and confident in her style. California is my home, but it really is also a lifestyle, a merging of nature and modernity that is appealing and allusive at the same time. I like to believe that my jewelry will lend an air of sexy and chic to every woman who wears it!
