I clean Mother Earth
I fertilize her Eggs
I ascend when it rains
I descend when it Ends

Utilizing the Earthworm as a metaphor of physical inspiration, FERTILE ASCENSION represents the different stages of a person’s life, from birth into adulthood (I.e. The cycle of life). 

The collection was conceived over the course of a year (between 2021-2022), inspired by a visit to the American Museum of Natural History's Hall of Biodiversity. 

The Diamonds utilized in this collection were originally De Beers Code of Origin. In this program, it creates "a customized code unique to your diamond [that] provides assurance that it is natural and conflict free, and was discovered by De Beers in Botswana, Canada, Namibia or South Africa."-- Source De Beers

The collection has expanded beyond diamonds, with simple ready-to-wear pieces.
