My name is Lia, a Creative & Maker, living in the Northeast. Growing up Italian-Venezuelan, this helped me fall in love with cultures and designs from South America, and the influences the European and African people have instilled in them. Central American culture also inspires me. I absolutely love their colorful and folkloric fabrications. The beauty and design brought by these cultures is truly captivating, and has brought me great joy in mixing these ideas and design aesthetics together to create one of a kind accessory pieces.
This is where my "Ethnic Boho" designs derived from. Most pieces have an Ethnic, Bohemian feel to them, but others are more simple and classic, still playing on the rawness of the materials I use. My background started when I was very young, recycling and upcycling "pre-loved" metals, wood, leather and stones that were around me, to create new and current looks that were "on trend" at the moment. This of course was to my discretion, since I was only 11.
As I got older, my technique and eye for fashion & trends got better, as well as the passion and excitement it gave me to create pieces that people were attracted to. When the mood is right, this makes for creating great & unique pieces that are handmade by me, in my little studio basement. No one item is like the other, I take my time creating each piece.
Now being in the Fashion industry for over 11 years, I have come to the realization of how different it feels when creating something with your own bare hands & design aesthetic to something that is not. My craftsmanship coupled with knowledge, truly makes for a unique piece. Setting trends, or reminding my customers what is actually really fashionable and wearable is something I strive for. Guiding your own unique look is something I love to do. Another design aspect I pride myself in, is functionality. Many of the pieces I create can be worn in more than one way. This way, you get more value and wear from my one of a kind pieces. There is always a lot of thought and meaning behind every stone & material used, and behind every piece, I'll always tell you it's meaning.
Because I also like to make your even extra special, I am also happy to help with Special Orders or Made to Order items. It can be one a kind or multiple units for Bridesmaids or Wedding/Baby Shower Gifts. This can include the jewelry bag as well. Other times I've been requested to make garment bags for the Bridal Party, which are normally the size of basic paper, 8.5"x11". Of course all this can be discussed and tweaked, but working closely with you on your special request is the best way.
