At the time of designing the collection, I was at a point where everything had fully aligned with throwing all my effort into pursuing my forever dream of The Gilded Stone. Yes! I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but I was ready to be a “Boss Lady”. Immediately I saw in my mind an image of myself, hands on hips, standing strong and confident. Something so real I could taste, that image went straight to sketch. Looking at it on paper then and there I knew, it had to be brought to life in the collection.

The Boss Lady silhouette while a reflection of the image I had in mind, wasn’t intended to be literal. I wanted to capture the essence of the vision I had of myself, but with shapes and joins that allow for the kind of movement that makes this piece work. I chose a 24K gold plated brass matte stain finish to represent value, kingship, eternal beauty and something that is precious.

“When women wear this piece, I want them to feel confident, sexy and just beautiful. I think especially during this time, any outing is an occasion. The Gilded Stone is all about individual style and this piece works either dressed up or down. Because this piece is such a statement, I personally love pairing it with either a single colored or color blocked dress, jumpsuit, jacket, tee or blouse…hair up and behind the ear. Other accessories if a must, would preferably be a simple layering of gold necklaces or one long simple necklace.” Check out Boss Lady here.
