Upon his thirteen-years of executive experience in high-end hotels and property management with a heightened sensitivity to the hollowness of the sheer luxury- lifestyle, Cliff journeyed into self-illuminated quests and awakening. Transported to mystical places where minerals dwell, Cliff was enchanted by the healing powers of inner Earth’s treasures.
As a lifestyle architect and a utopian lover of humanity, Cliff embarked onto a creative process of designing wearable arts with gemstones that heal, regenerate, harmonize, cleanse and heighten the inner frequencies of human auras. With the finest precious metals, vibrational gemstones and quartz, Cliff’s collectibles are handcrafted by dedicated artisans in his atelier.
With a compassionate ideal for collective higher missions in sharing Light with the world, these social conscious gifts are your companions for grounding and strengthening. They are your wearable friends who support you through your journeys in life, in creativity and in empowered manifestations.

My inspiration in life is Sir Richard Branson.

In the beginning of
Cliff ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Designer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
starting my own business, I wish I was more humbled about stepping into a completely new industry, so that I would not have to lose some of my close friends.
Please tell us Cliff, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Designer?
I will share that having your own business would definitely require myself to be strategic at all times, especially it is very competitive in the jewelry/retail industry.
Cliff, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I strongly believe in "leading by example", in order to have my colleagues to understand my vision, it is important to guide them through "doing it yourself" and to be a role model and an inspirational leader.
Cliff please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Designer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
My proudest moment is when I received my first customer and seeing someone wearing and talking about my jewelry really makes me happy.
Cliff, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
It is rather difficult to just switch on my creative brain. Like I said, I am inspired through people's stories, emotions and expressions.
Once, I was able to finish a whole new collection within a week, only because I was so excited about meeting this new person/friend/potential lover, perhaps, it was love (emotion) that made me very inspired and creative.
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Designer?
Be true to yourself and always express yourself through your own work in the most authentic way.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, I would love to collaborate with editorial photographers, editorial make up artists, and fashion designers in order to come up with inspiring images.
Now for the best part Cliff! Please upload 5-10 photos so we can get to see your work.
