ABOUT THE ARTIST
Marocco’s life passion is being in the moment of the creative process. Her driving force is to capture and harness that compelling urgency to create. Her creations channel positive energy and help to renew the soul.
“I like to style both the body and spirit with my jewelry,” she said. Inspired by meditation and her yoga practice, Marocco has established herself as an internationally acclaimed jewelry artist and her jewelry is in high demand, worn by many celebrities such as Russell Brand, Nicole Scherzinger, Elaine Irwin and Frankie Ballard.
Marocco was also personally invited to Saudi Arabia by the royal family to exhibit the Marocco collection at an annual women-only charity event.
Marocco’s artistic prowess also extends into large-scale abstract expressionist and figurative paintings. After a 15-year career as a successful canvas artist, Marocco began creating jewelry seven years ago, and the Marocco line now includes nine unique collections true to her original concept of “The Audacity of Diamonds on Leather.”
Marocco handcrafts one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces and you can feel the energy infused in both her jewelry creations while wearing them, and also upon reflection of her artwork.
