Call me a romantic, call me old-fashioned, or sentimental; Royan Jewelry is about all of that and more. I love unique, inspired objects. I surround myself with antiques, works of art and pictures that inspire me. I bought and sold antique jewelry and furniture in my own shop in Scottsdale, Arizona for over 15 years. During my buying trip travels, I met lots of new people and merchants from all over the world and I was inspired by their talent and dedication to hard work and their enjoyment in what they love to do.
I started to make handmade beadwork and jewelry after the complements and encouragements that I received from many friends and family. Perhaps the most influential experience for me was when I met a young jewelry designer, Maru, who was selling her beautiful work on the steps of the Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, Paris. I sat down next to her, bought a few pieces and went back to watch her design rings and earrings for the next three days. She was very kind and generous and she shared her expertise and resources with me. Since then, I searched more, studied, took more classes and traveled back to Paris again and again. As inspiration for my collection, I took time to visit my favorite flea markets, museums, and art galleries. My jewelry is inspired from all my travels and all of the unique art forms that I have seen and loved.
Everything I make, I make with pure love and energy. If I don't love it, I won’t make it, and if I wouldn’t wear it myself, I can’t sell it. This is my promise to my customers. I truly hope you enjoy my jewelry as much as I do, and I hope you feel great energy when you wear it.
