About Tesoro del Sol Jewellery Designs - TesoroDelSol
As a Toronto based jewellery designer and founder of Tesoro del Sol Jewellery Designs, my passion lies in designing and handcrafting exotic bohemian gemstone jewellery for women and men. I enjoy working in an array of mediums such as semiprecious stones combined with unique glass beads, various base and precious metals, as well incorporating textiles into my work. My inspirations seem to come from the most unlikely sources, however, many derive from my love of warm intense colours, with rustic and organic textures. Extensive travels have also inspired my designs and enabled them to reach an exotic and bold level.

My interest in jewellery was piqued when I came across an antique treasure chest filled with vintage beaded necklaces which I thought needed to be “rescued”. With little to no tools at hand, I began to reinvent some of those pieces by taking each one apart, then mixing and matching the loose beads and charms to create new pieces. Before long, I felt compelled to begin wearing my new upcycled designs and much to my surprise, I began to turn heads as people started to take notice of my new found talent.

I attribute much of my innate creativity to my mother, who is also an artist in her own rite. For as long as I could remember, she would crochet intricate items using brightly coloured yarn. Although her craft remained a life long hobby, she undeniably passed the skill of attention to detail and ability to work with delicate materials onto me. My mom often referred to myself and my 3 sisters as “Tesoro di mamma”, which translates to “mother’s treasure”, in which I have used as the inspiration behind the name Tesoro del Sol Jewellery Designs.

I look forward to reaching new frontiers with my designs and hope to impart an everlasting impression on those who embrace them. 

From my heart, to my hands, to you.
