Gifting My Creation to Miss Universe
At the Magic Bus Benefit Gala in Houston on February 9th, I was pleased to give away one of my own necklace creations to Miss World, Manushi Chhillar. This organization is near to my heart, as it provides educational and enrichment opportunities to underprivileged children and young adults in India. I am delighted to have had the chance to share this moment with all who attended this important gala and am honored to have met Miss World and gifted her a piece that is close to my heart. All around, this night was full of benevolence and charity, and I am proud to be a part of the efforts of this great organization.
“Valloria Door” Painting Featured in Italian Calendar
I am excited to share that the door painting I so lovingly worked on in Italy has been featured in a 2019 Valloria calendar titled “Paese Delle Porte Dipinte”. Translated to English, this phrase means “The Land of Painted Doors”. The calendar features unique, one-of-a-kind doors that have been painted in a range of styles and colors. I love the symbolism that doors give, and painting on one adds yet another layer of meaning. Doors represent both new beginnings as well as the end of a chapter. They are the perfect symbol to be used in a calendar, which marks the passing of time. I am honored for my work to have been featured for the month of March among other talented artists.
Gifting Jewelry Inspired by Houston Socialite Lynn Wyatt
Inspired by her charm and grace, I crafted “Divine Grace” with Lynn Wyatt in mind. She has an honest, deep, guttural laugh that instantly lightens her surroundings. She’s sharp as a tack with whit like a whip. She is Houston royalty, and it was Divine Grace that brought us together. She has been an inspiration to me for so many years and I feel so blessed to have finally met her.
