PRODUCT STORY
I remember discovering the transformative power of jewelry as a young girl, piling on my mother's jewelry with a more-is-better approach, and how beautiful and special it made me feel to wear it. As a child, I had no concept of how much it cost or what it was worth. All I knew was the pleasure of wearing it and how it made me feel. Inevitably, I would get caught and, fearing loss or ruin, be forced to put it back.

I think about how much beautiful jewelry went unworn and how it was locked away for safekeeping. The memory of this has shaped my relationship to jewelry. I believe it should be worn, and that the value of how good it feels to wear it is in fact more valuable than the object itself, despite its worth. It is my hope and intention that the jewelry I make be worn and enjoyed, that it lend itself to the expression of personal style, and that whoever wears it will feel beautiful and special too.

My company name is named after my great-grandmother, Filomena Demarco.

I've been voting for the past 15 minutes on here and this is one of the more creative and exciting pieces I've seen. I really agree with your philosophy, so would my grandmother. Good luck!

I love Filomena Demarco Jewelry. I own several of her pieces and can't wait to purchase more! She even designed a custom necklace using a family heirloom stone. I can't wait to pass it down to my daughter.

I like it - it's different. Wouldn't it look better if the layers were silver,then gold? Not more-then it would look tacky.
