Feels so good to do it again!
 

I've had the tremendous honor to collaborate with the super talented Steve Selman.

The session we created embraced nude modelling, my jewelry and.. freedom, playfulness, you name it.

When I came to NY in 2001, one of the things I did to earn a living was to be a figure model. I worked at the School of Visual Arts, the Spring Studio and private studios. I met incredible artists, old school New Yorkers and I got to experience art spaces that have been rented since the sixties and once attended by legends like Andy Warhol. Pretty cool.

Steve made me feel very comfortable in the studio and I let myself be guided by his direction and my own intoxicating freedom or artistic fluidity. Unlike posing for painters, this session was dinamic and playful. Steve's mastery of lighting resulted in these exquisite captures..

 
Olive trees and ancient grounds in Spain
 
I visited my loved ones in Spain the first two weeks in October. To my delight, it was still hot (90F) and it felt like sweet summer. It was my first time in Extremadura, a dry region between Madrid and Portugal.

I slept under the starry sky, walked on XII century grounds and swam on very cold natural waters. Not to mention the tasting of 'liquid gold' - best olive oil in the world!

Madrid was my final destination. Five intense days where I visited museums, did a Pop Up and opened a new account! You can now shop IZ Jewelry @ Piamonte , iconic store located in Chueca. So very exciting!!

 
Why IZ Signature collection has Cosmic written all over it?
 

I believe we are made of stardust, and yes, that we come from the stars.

One of IZ's hastag is #cosmicchic, because I believe in the influence of the cosmos and yet I see my customer as the divine feminine dancing through life with sophistication, passion, elegance and curiosity.

I also love this image of Alicia Keys : the wet look and the hoops! Reason why I designed the pieces with a very modern touch.

The result? Sleek curves and energetic lettering to amplify this truth: We Are Cosmic
