You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment," wrote Henry David Thoreau.
The imaginative and unique craftsmanship of this nature-inspired designer – who is also a marine biologist and published author – lists exclusive names such as RTH, Garde and art museum shops among retailers carrying her line.

About the Designer - Maddalena Bearzi is not only an Italian jewelry artist, but also a renowned marine biologist and President of the non-profit organization Ocean Conservation Society. As a scientist and author, she has traveled extensively for over 20 years studying wild dolphins and other animals and learning new ways to express herself.
