If you think that Josette’s jewelry designs are dramatic and edgy,
you can thank her years as a costume designer, jewelry designer and prop
master for some of the biggest bands in the history of rock ‘n’ roll.
That’s where she acquired her flare for big pieces that make a statement
about who you are as the wearer.
A big tomboy at heart, she never
shied away from getting her hands dirty, sharing her love of
semi-precious and precious stones with her son. Rock hounding was an
activity that the two of them could do together as a form of physical
and occupational therapy. Her son had a great love for collecting rocks
and it allowed him to gain strength while the two enjoyed time together
and in nature.
From their weekend adventures into the rock mines
came an appreciation for some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful and
spectacular creations – amethyst, crystals, rubies, emeralds, quartz and
turquoise – brilliant colors and combinations that would become the
signatures of her growing jewelry business.
Today, Josette Designs is
known for its bold use of the finest quality semi-precious stones and
top grade metals, all inspired by the designs of the American Southwest.
The collection has quickly caught on, even ending up around the necks
of some of the most fashion forward actors and actresses in Hollywood
and New York and Miami.
