Minimalism and Minimal Jewelry

What is minimalism? Ever since I started designing minimal jewelry three years ago, I kept asking myself that question.

As cliché as it may be, motherhood is very important to me. It changed my life. It transformed me as a person and made me grow and become a better person. It still does. It grounded me and made me...
