Lovetatum™ Jewelry was established in the summer of 2006. However, I have been designing and making jewelry since I can remember. I began selling to the local high-end beach boutiques in my hometown of Point Pleasant, New Jersey and later developed my jewelry into a full-time business. I found that there is a high demand for my unique style of jewelry. It expresses my point of view as a young artist who is ahead of the trends, while the sheer quality appeals to a wide range of clientele.

I am now based out of La Jolla, California and find that I draw my inspiration from international beach life, and translate it into jewelry for any and every occasion. I use a combination of corals from the Caribbean, briolettes from India and China, and hand-carved stone pendants from Hong Kong and Bali, just to name a few.

My unique pieces are handmade with sterling silver and adorned with semi-precious stones and pearls from all over the world. To me, it is important that my jewelry express something personal and individual. Every man and woman who wears Lovetatum™ should feel that his/her piece is special. My philosophy has always been to inspire creativity and promote positive energy in the world, and I will continue to reach and enrich‌

the coral collection

My travels to Barbados and Jamaica inspired me to create a great statement piece. I had a vision of it in my mind, but what I was looking for was not out there‌yet. I dreamt of an authentic coral piece that had brilliant color, amazing details and embodied the life of the Caribbean. Now I’ve created just that and more, with the coral collection. 03 04

the turquoise collection The first piece of jewelry I owned was a turquoise ring from a local beach boutique. Everyone should enjoy the natural beauty of turquoise. It is one of the oldest stones known and will bring wisdom to your wardrobe! If given a turquoise piece by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. Turquoise is a symbol of friendship, brings peace to the home and is just the timeless color we need for the season.

As a kid, I would play with my sister’s stone collection and was so fascinated by the natural crystallization in the stones. A bed of tightly packed crystals is the common growth habitat particular to quartz. When the bed has a very fine crystalline structure similar to sugar or salt crystals, it is known as Druzy. It was love at first sight.

If it looks edible, I want it! The fun, whimsical appeal of my rock candy collection has everyone wearing smiles. I incorporate freshwater pearls and a rare stone called atomic labradorite. There is only one company in the world that heat-treats labradorite to bring out the natural metallic in the stone. Enjoy it, have fun with it and love it!

the agate collection When I saw the purple lace agate for the first time, I knew I had to create a very special custom piece. I wanted to feel uplifted, and what better way than to put bursts of vibrant purple and olive jade with a hint of black. It’s dangerously colorful, but oh, so elegant.
