Where does inspiration for my designs come from ? At times I draw something from the natural world. However, inspiration can also come from a dream. Mine or the clients. Dreams, when put to paper and then transformed into precious jewelry is something truly special. A good example of this is this pink, 18-karat palladium gold necklace with an amazing, custom checkerboard cut, amethyst weighing 33 ct, accompanied by smaller ovals and hand-carved, natural carnelian flowers.
