Rio Rush: Breakout Beauty, Bursting Bravura

Rio Rush: Breakout Beauty, Bursting Bravura

The Rio Rush Collection was inspired by my invitation to attend the Louis Vuitton Cruise Fashion Show in Rio de Janeiro at the Niteroi Museum of Contemporary Art on May 27th, 2016.

My intense excitement and anticipation of this experience resulted in wave after wave of creativity. Surfing my imagination fearlessly, I fashioned a forward thinking capsule collection. The idea of this iconic city of famous beaches surrounded by dense jungle led me to a mood of edgy exoticism.

 These dynamic design ideas were enlivened by a palate of semiprecious & precious gems, enhanced by the sparkle of tiny natural color diamonds. Textures were created and metal colors were selected to best flatter the gems.

A renewed passion for my signature iconic amulets ignited their reinvention. My creative rush led to an edgy evolution of the Entwined Heart, Rosebud, and Lucky Horn. The Thorn, Claw and Lightening Bolt were added as the newest icons.

My Signature Clasp gained more importance as a design element, not only because it is now used on each side of a circle to secure bracelets and necklaces, but also used to attach and detach amulets.

The experience of Brazil did not disappoint - it was visceral and I loved it! This collection is Rio - heart, soul, and spirit - as seen through my eyes.
