When I started a jewelry brand inspired by history, art and travel about a year ago with my husband, little did I know that I’d be in the middle of a 2-year hiatus from leaving the country. But I’m headed to London next month and I cannot wait!

But while absence makes the heart grow fonder, I did learn to fall in love again with those things closer to home. The natural beauty of New England as well as the stunning and historical architecture within a short drive of my home sustained me and kept me creatively energized! The Preservation Society of Newport County maintains 11 beautiful properties that I can explore endlessly:

So while I am headed to one of my favorite cities soon, I am so grateful for what I have right here in Rhode Island! See a few of my favorites below:

Inspiration for my Lion Jewelry
Inspiration for my Lion Jewelry

March 23, 2022 1 min read 0 Comments

I have always loved the Lion’s of Florence and knew that I wanted to do something design-wise with them someday. When I decided to create Florin Arte Jewelry, one of the sketches that I made was a Lion’s profile - I wanted to capture the strength of the gaze coupled with the beautiful mane. I also love the Greek Key and have used it in several place in my jewelry. Symbolizing “Strength” the Lion Key is one of my favorite pieces!
