Personal Statement

Inspired by notions of beauty, spirituality and her environment.   Yvette approaches her design aesthetic as an artist who explores her art-making process.  Her designs are a reflection of her background in the fine arts realm,  uniting her vibrant stones with the infinite potential of line, color, form, and pattern, creating versatile and dynamic jewelry that remains relevant beyond contemporary trends.  Yvette's meditative selection of materials reflects her belief in the transcendental power of stones and their spiritual ability to connect individuals across cultures.Sparking swarovski, precoisa cal crystals, rhinestones, and colored gemstones make up her assemblage.  Her unique collection of necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings encourage personal style and fashion forward statements that foster elegance, vibrancy and versatility.

Yvette’s jewelry collections include necklaces, bracelets, earrings, hair accessories, and bridal jewelry, among others. She is currently working on a men's jewelry line, a couture pillow collection, luxurious clutches, purses,and eyeglass case/holders. Contact Yvette for custom-designed pieces.
