As a designer my greatest inspirations come through my travels. From the opulent temples of India and Thailand to the sacred ceremonies of Bali, I have found the Asian cultures to be seeped in an ancient artistry of color and design. Their use of color with gems, pearls, and intricate gold works has been an inspiration in my designs. I am also profoundly influenced by the gems themselves. Being surrounded by immense quantities and varieties of gems I find myself captivated by their vibrations, cut, and earthly qualities.
