These pieces are your perfect companions for new adventures, moments and memories. Due to their highly unique and diverse character, there is a perfect piece for every taste in this collection. Inspirations from the Mediterranean culture clearly shine through: its outgoing people, fascinating beliefs, ethnic patterns and its glamourous lifestyle mixed with hippie chic style played a central role in the creation of these stunning trinkets. When wearing these ornaments, you can sparkle brighter than the Mediterrean sun. Sophisticated, sensual, summery.

The Lucky Goddess collection contains of many eye- catching talismans with ancient symbols. These symbols shall bring the wearer good luck and spiritual protection. For example the symbol of the eye we know from greek mythology that is always protecting the wearer. This symbol appears in form of heart- shaped earrings or, as a talisman symbol among many others on a big, chunky necklace. Other well- known talisman lucky symbols, for example the hand, star and horseshoe are also used in his collection.
