Inafter successfully launching, marketing and establishing my jewelry line, we had a house fire. I was poised, just before it occurred, to create a web presence and to reach out to higher-end boutiques. I had collaborated with other designers successfully and felt ready for the next stage of the business.
The fire derailed me. We rented houses and began rebuilding our home. When we returned, I found it impossible to begin creating again. All that marketing and Shannon holly bikini those relationships forged over the years were gone.
I had to start from scratch. This thought alone was immobilizing.
I felt no inspiration and very much deflated when people would ask if I would continue. So, rather than abandon it, I started painting. Delving into a new medium, studying color theory, playing with paint. It let me explore my creativity without defining what type of artist I was.
Slowly I began to create jewelry for myself, one-of-a-kind pieces for me, not for boutiques, or a client or the red carpet. In the summer of last year, a friend encouraged me to create a small collection based on some of these one-of-a-kind pieces I had created.

My collections are eclectic. My fine jewelry is delicate and refined. And within that definition, some of the fine jewelry pieces are classic and others are abstract. But I always work with stones that are dense in color and sparkle.
This inspired by nature. Then there is the Cleopatra collection whose inspiration is sexy, with an Egyptian feel and rich in color.
