Growing up in coastal city of Cebu City, in the Philippines, artisan Carol grew up next to the beauty of the ocean. She would often visit the beautiful beaches of her hometown and she found a love for the vibrantly colored seashells found there. The unique patterns of the shell mixed with the iridescent sheen inspired her imagination. Carol’s designs feature natural materials that are found locally near her home. Using a unique combination of shells, wood and natural materials, she crafts her nature inspired designs. We love her use of color and her pieces give off a tropical island feel that is both stylish and elegant.
“I love going to beach, the crashing waves with the sun and the sand is my happy place. The island life is lived at a slower pace, which gives you time to explore your surroundings. That is where I find inspiration for my pieces, a shimmering seashell, a blooming tropical flower or the colors of the many festivals and fiestas all inspire me. I believe that life should be full of beautiful color and my jewelry expresses that. I hope to share a little piece of that with all of you and I am so very happy for my partnership with AeraVida, and together I hope you see the beauty of the Philippines.”
