I thank God as my inspiration of love and all the people who have made my life and designs possible – my family, friends, co-workers and all artists everywhere. You make my heart sing.
I am deeply grateful to all the magnificent silversmiths and goldsmiths who have worked with me through the years. Their hands make my designs a reality.
I celebrate and thank the splendid Italian architects, contractors, carpenters, electricians, iron workers, roofers, plumbers, painters, stone workers, excavators, landscapers, gardeners, housekeepers and attorneys who made my Florence villa projects possible. I am forever grateful.
I am so appreciative of Ike Isenhour, my talented architect, designer and beloved friend, for making my dreams come to life. We have left an imprint of joy on Tuscany!
I thank my web team, for they have made this website possible.
I honor a very special man who helped make each gem description more special through his dedication.
I marvel at the universe around me and the miracles everywhere, wishing that I might inspire or spark a smile. I love what I do and I’m grateful that I can express my love through my designs.
I am thankful to my greatest inspirations, my father, my mother and grandmother
They taught me
Choose love above all
Be honest and honorable
Honor your family
Honor all that you do
Always do your best
Close your eyes and know that it was all done with love.
Above all, I want to thank God for His gift to me – to love what I do and always, always do it with love!

I dedicate this website to my son Diego,
