Carolina Quiroa

"I started my entrepreneurial life when I was 11 years old. I remember making ice cream to sell to all my friends; and also grabbing limes from the trees to sell them."

“I remember the sound of the rain, and the smell of coffee when I wake up in the morning; it reminds me of my native... land…

“I'm Carolina Quiroa. I was born in Barahona, D. R. Barahona is called The Pearl of the South, for its beautiful beaches, waterfalls, mountains and diverse wildlife. Barahona is where the famous gemstone larimar is found. Larimar is the native stone of the Dominican Republic.

“I grew up surrounded by great artisans, who dedicated their lives to creating beautiful jewelry with larimar and amber, 100% handcrafted. I grew up in an entrepreneurship environment. Most of the people I knew had their own business, and that really impacted my life. I started my entrepreneurial life when I was 11 years old. I remember making ice cream to sell to all my friends; and also grabbing limes from the trees to sell them. At such a young age I wanted to be able to earn my own money. I was a business-minded little girl.

“Time passed by and I migrated to the United States at the age of 15. Here is where I met my high school sweetheart. He's from Guatemala, another beautiful country full of great people and great artisans. In our first year of marriage, he took me to Antigua Guatemala, and there I was introduced to jade. Let me tell you... It was love at first sight, and since then, I never stopped wearing jade. Life got me into the jewelry industry, and there I realized that I loved designing. I always have; it was like something inside of me woke up. Since I was little I used to design my dolls’ jewelry. I remember making necklaces and earrings. And the highlight of my life was to design my wedding dress.

“I started working in the jewelry industry, and while working in the industry I noticed that a lot of companies didn't work with these two beautiful gemstones. Since then, I started making my own designs using my two favorite gemstones, jade and larimar. They represent where my husband and I are from. My purpose is to bring people the beauty of jade, the beauty of larimar and their meanings. I know and understand that for some people it’s not a diamond, but for others it means something special like love, unity, strength, and happiness. I love the variety of colors and the feeling I get each time the stone touches my skin.

“When we are young we always dream of something, and sometimes when we grow up and face unimaginable circumstances we just try our best to get through them. And sometimes we tend to put our most precious dreams aside, but they will always be there, deep inside of our hearts waiting for us to take action; even when we think that now it's too late, and that we missed the opportunity. It's never, ever too late to fight for your dreams; to fight for what you really want; to see your dream come to light and become a reality. I’m grateful to do what I love.”

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.
