Yvonne's jewelry has grown into a unique and compelling passion. Her design interests are global, reflecting the ocean that she inhabits and finds her tranquility. Also the cities she works in: urban, culturally diverse, and infused with artistic inspiration. Her designer jewelry fuses old world nostalgia has it interfaces with new world fashion of today, resulting in breathtakingly unique and unusual wearable works. Her unraveled collection of statement necklaces and bracelets is gaining great raves across the United States. Her signature pieces leave you breathless.
Studying the intricacies of collecting shells through travel around the world and extensive independent research, Yvonne draws upon the designs she creates from the ocean she collected shells as a child and still today still finds that same inspiration and peace that comes from a shell. Her designs consist of shells, mother of pearl, semi precious gem stones, unique findings and Swarovski crystal. The success of her bodacious collection which was her first creations in 2009 has all been sold and she will not repeat the line. The unraveled collection is the signature collection you will see around for a long time. As always no item is ever duplicated, her designer jewelry has proved that her blend of influences and craft are distinctive and timeless. Yvonne is devoted to the development of both her fashion lines: her unraveled jewelry which includes innovative collections that bind the past with the present such as choker statement necklaces and bracelets or earrings, and her mens collection the MANN collection. Her goal for 2012 -2013 is to produce a shoe line as well as another line of jewelry called Legacy which will in-tell jewelry from her heritage which is Native Indian (Black Foot and Cherokee ) along with her French and Africa roots.
Her Motto in life is:
Dare to dream the impossible, go beyond where your eyes can see touching a place in destiny where your dreams becomes a reality
Designer YCB in her own words..
What I Feel About Fashion
I think the biggest part of fashion is YOU, its each individual finding their own comfort zone with the type of clothes they feel best in, fashion is your own unique style. A lot of people follow trend and wear what they see but its about taking a little of this and a little of that and whole lot of you and making something exciting and fun something that says a statement about who you are.
I also believe that accessories play a big part in your fashion sense and creating a style just for you; it can make or break an outfit. Being a jewelry designer myself I place a huge emphasis on jewelry because for me it is my style the rest just falls in line.
I desire to share and encourage help build confidence and uplift self esteem in all women who need it. My desire is to not to just be a Jewelry Designer selling my handmade jewelry but giving love and encouragement to my women and men from my own struggles and challenges giving back through what you have overcome is how we survive and live on not just to live and existence but to become better and made whole by letting go of the past and embracing the future with a loving expectancy.
