During this time of social distancing, Ι wanted to reach out to fellow colleagues, friends & influencers to find out how they are handling the restrictions Covid-19 has placed in their daily lives. I am interested to find out how everyone is dealing with the situation and hopefully help each other by passing on helpful tips & fun past times.

Stay home! Stay safe!
Love, Ileana

Corona will affect our way of life and will offer the chance to redefine our priorities and maybe ask for more meaning rather than show. The jewelry industry will adjust, it will not die. Humans embellished themselves with jewelry before they wore clothes. The need for embellishment is a very deep human need.
