About

A celebrated jeweler working out of Asheville North Carolina, Olivia de Soria creates art-jewelry with a sculptural flare. By reconstituting objects that surround us in the natural and industrial world, Olivia reshapes our environment through her imagination to beget wearable art. Sensuality is the embodiment of her designs which adorn the feminine figure with distinguished style and grace. Olivia’s design process has been extensively influenced by cultural traditions from all over the world. She spent six months in the Persian Gulf doing field research on the history of pearl diving. All of her research and photographs can be seen at www.desoriadesign.blogspot.com. Olivia’s unique and contemporary pearl designs are a direct effect from her first hand experience in a pearl diving country.
