IOLINA is a line of contemporary jewelry comprised of subtle statement pieces and everyday favorites in gold, sterling silver, and bronze. Made in my Long Island studio and in collaboration with longtime industry experts in Manhattan, the designs focus on movement and balance for a sophisticated yet effortless aesthetic. Whether it’s sunlight dancing on rippled water, a vine wrapped snugly around a tree, or the effect of wind on a sailboat’s rigging, the inspiration for IOLINA is always about the relationship between two or more forces, objects, or elements that is translated into the relationship between the jewelry and the wearer. A former public school art teacher in Brooklyn, I continue to teach part time while expanding my design practice and building my business.
