As a first generation American of Ecuadorian parents and being born in Humboldt Park. I am influenced by that culture to create earrings and jewelry that has symbolism and meaning. Earrings are important part of being a Latina and my ears were pierced as a baby. I enjoy making small ornate gemstone earrings that have a story inside them. I became a reiki master after I had a near death experience and i put reiki into everything I do.
