Artist Statement

 Thank you for visiting Rio Jewelry Studio!  Rustic, earthy, and organic, each piece of handcrafted beach inspired, boho jewelry is designed and made by me, with great attention to detail, here at my jewelry studio in Rio del Mar, California. I am an independent jewelry artist with a passion for designing handmade bohemian jewelry since 2003.

As a beach-inspired jewelry artist, I have designed my line of  jewelry for the free-spirited woman, a woman with a bohemian soul.

My studio is my sanctuary, and it is where I want to be all the time. Living in a coastal community, I find endless inspiration here, and all along the beautiful beaches of the California coast, from Malibu to Half Moon Bay. The tranquility and strength of the ocean waves, rich blues and blue-greens, soft sand tones, the feeling of timelessness. While designing, I set the intention I wish to imbue in each piece, and go from there. For my beach chic boho jewelry, I focus on instilling the calm and meditative vibes of ocean waves, for inner peace, and to bring you a treasure which will inspire your meditation.  Lately, while stringing Tibetan beads, I have been practicing Creation Meditation, a practice combining meditation with creative expression. It keeps me centered and in the present moment, focused only on my design while enhancing creativity. Many of my designs feature brass inlaid, fair trade Tibetan beads, and the beautifully handcrafted amulets and talismans created by local artisans in the villages of Nepal. The beads themselves are tiny works of art that carry with them a rich history and give my jewelry a vibe of faraway places. Along with a rainbow of gemstones, I love featuring these handmade beads in my boho chic bracelets, pendants and earrings. Each piece of  jewelry is designed with intention, to evoke for you a feeling of empowerment or a wish to enhance spiritual connection. From bracelets that look great stacked, or as individual statement pieces, Rio Jewelry Studio's designs are cohesive and pair beautifully with each other. A fun and colorful addition to your jewelry collection! 

 Please contact me if you are interested in hosting a trunk show, pop up, jewelry party, or including my collection at your event, or boutique.
