INSPIRATION BEHIND THE BRAND
The designer is known for her elaborately designed and colorful statement jewelry made from a variety of materials including exotic leathers, gem-grade resin, sterling silver, 18k gold, and both precious and semi-precious stones. She prides herself on working with a diverse, dedicated team of artisans to ensure that every piece of jewelry lives up to her uncompromising standards.
Cristina was formally trained in jewelry design and began her entrepreneurial journey by opening five luxury boutiques, designing a fine jewelry line, and building a successful hotel in her native Brazil. After moving to New York she decided to further pursue her love for designing jewelry and created a dynamic and modern fashion jewelry line.
“New York is an incredibly diverse place; there’s a blend of ideas and viewpoints that make it very unique and fashion forward, which affects both my life and my aesthetic.”
While calling the city home, travel is a primary source of inspiration for the international designer.
