Years later, after gaining success and recognition as a jewelry designer, I created my first bejeweled picture frame. Since that first frame, the collection has grown to encompass luxurious designs from figurines to furniture. I am very proud to work with a talented team of designers and artisans in New York, Rhode Island, and around the world to realize each handcrafted treasure."
