Haute Couture Jewelry/Styling Career
I’ve had a magnificent, colorful career that’s taken me around the world and back. I’m a Wife and a Mother first and always. I’ve also had many opportunities to study and work alongside many great artists, designers and thinkers, which has shaped my path leading me to where I am today.
As many of you know, I style and will continue to style Julie Chen and other A-list celebrities. You can see my work every day across social media. But over the next few months, I’ll be making changes to my website to showcase my jewelry. Here’s why: To me, a luxury lifestyle doesn’t just mean you’re savvy in your outward, personal style. It means you’re sophisticated and thoughtful about where and how you spend your resources, which includes everything from your time to your money. I’ll share from my own experience, I changed a lot when my Interior Design career took off, and I started to move in different social circles. As I embraced this new, exciting chapter, I learned how to invest differently in my wardrobe and create eye-catching signature looks. I learned to choose that one stand-out piece to walk confidently into any room.
Most stylists focus on designer clothes and bags and call jewelry an “accessory.” I don’t see jewelry as an accessory. I see it as the foundation of your wardrobe. When I plan outfits for myself or clients, Jewelry is where my head goes first. In this world of trendy, disposable everything, Jewelry’s resilient, and gives voice to every woman.
Most people have the same clothes, but very few have the same jewels. That’s one reason I began designing these collections. But the other reason … Jewelry has a long rich history of protecting, guiding, serving and adorning the wearer. I honor that tradition. And my pieces, clients say, empower them to shake up the world.
