Pure Jewelry Designs® Jewelry Designer, purejewelrydesign.com WESTON

You’ve been a jewelry designer for nearly 20 years. What do you love about it? I’m Spanish, Chinese and Italian, and I have always loved fashion, art and jewelry. So it’s a natural. I started designing with jade, doing combinations, buying and layering. I use gold, silver and other unique metals. I also redesign sentimental necklaces, earrings and bracelets in colors like coral and turquoise. I do conservative pieces with a twist— sexy, elegant and magical. Describe a typical work morning. I’m up at 4 a.m. on social media before my husband brings me coffee in bed while I edit pictures and write up descriptions for the new designs I created the night before. I love mornings because my home studio captures so much natural light. I select beautiful semi-precious stones, colors, Swarovski crystals, natural pearls and various textures that I will use to create pieces later in the day. How do you give back to the community? I showcase my jewelry creations at charity functions like Children’s Harbor and JAFCO. I know nonprofits need to raise money and awareness. I’ve always given back because it feeds my soul. What new designs are you launching now? I am designing jewelry to take in the water, like chokers with 200 Swarovski crystals crocheted into stone. These pieces can go from swimsuit to sundress and heels. They are spectacular, and I am in the process of teaming with a swimsuit designer. Stay tuned!
