I must say, I’m pretty happy with how the shop is shaping up. I opened it a little over 6 years ago and it’s amazing how much my tastes and styling preferences have changed in that time. In many ways, as much as I loved my shop before, I had grown tired of the colors and designs. It didn’t feel like “me” anymore. A lot of that is attributed to how much my jewelry has evolved over the years. My designs are lighter, drapier, more geometric, so the shop’s new cleaner design and lighter colors feel more on point.
I love using all the driftwood and beach treasures that I’ve collected over the years from beaches all over both coasts of Costa Rica. I painted little geometric patterns on them and I think it really gives them a little something extra.
