“I always had a hidden talent that I discovered over the years: that of creating. Living in my world of colors and being a fashion lover, I projected my passion in bracelets and necklaces made with beads, mixing shapes, colors and textures with unique pieces that I bought everywhere in the world where I traveled, that’s how My desire to create and design something new and “fancy” was born – Jocelyn Yanez
