“At first glance, you might not think that my Super Bloom Collection has any connection my Flat Gold pieces that I have loved doing forever and ever -- but it does!"
"Since the beginning, I have had so much fun creating pretty, 18 karat gold silhouettes that lend themselves beautifully to earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. As I experimented, I began to link them together to form our Drop Earrings or play with scale for our supersized Love pendants. One day while I was in San Miguel de Allende -- one of the most inspiring places on the planet -- I was admiring the brightly colored flowers that adorned the candles that I found at a small gift shop in town. It dawned on me that instead of wax, I could try making three-dimensional flowers out of gold."
"To make each flower, every layer of petals is hand-shaped from a single sheet of yellow gold or rose. And because I just can’t help myself, I like to layer two or three layers of petals, and then add pink opals, Kingman turquoise, and diamonds for extra color and dimension. And that’s the story of Super Bloom.”
