The HERA Collection is a mixed metal collection of gracefully wrapped columns of 14 kt gold fill and sterling silver. Intricate spirals of gold and silver built upon silver forms or suspended alone. Jewelry pieces delicate on its own or spontaneous wrappings of gold around silver or the finishing touch on a baroque creamy pearl. All of it subtle and quiet pieces of modern jewelry.
Hera is the goddess of woman in Greek mythology. She is also the goddess of marriage, family and childbirth. She is the protector of all women. We all have someone in our lives that serves this role at each stage of our lives. Sometimes she remains the same person, sometimes she changes but she is always present. My protector has been my mom through every stage of my life, and even when I didn't even know it.
She has been the constant in my life. Every time I pull out a recipe for a Chinese delicacy I am reminded that she taught me how to cook and appreciate my ethnic heritage. Every time I sketch a piece of jewelry I am reminded of her beautiful handwriting and hidden artistic skills. And every time I say good night to my family I am reminded of her presence at home that made me feel safe. My mom is my Hera.
