Graziela has been in the Jewelry business for over 20 years. She grew up in Brazil learning about many of the natural resources the country has to offer. Her backyard was a ‘gemological treasure’. She traveled to many different mining towns throughout Brazil learning about the fascinating history behind every stone that would ultimately be the inspiration for her future creations.
Graziela is GIA certified in Colored Gems, Diamonds and Jewelry making. She moved to the US 14 years ago where she lives with her husband and four boys.
One of Graziela's passions is to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. She became involved with a local organization, Tails of Hope. Graziela's dream of opening an animal shelter was realized in November 2011. One of her greatest joys is spending time at the shelter with all the wonderful dogs and cats.
We need to be the voice for these helpless creatures, please join us in the fight. Together we can make a difference. For more information about Tails of Hope and to make a donation, please visit http://www.tailsofhope.org.
