About Diva Zappa:
Daughter of music icon Frank Zappa, and artist advocate, Gail, Diva learned to express herself creatively at an early age, in all forms of the arts. She was raised to use her own voice and to follow her passions, which have most recently led her to fashion.

Diva Zappa has become a pioneer in knitting. She first created “Hand Made Beauty” in the hills of Los Angeles, in 2002. Diva’s first showing of her “Hand Made Beauty” collection, at the Candela/Decker Gallery in New York, kicked off the city’s Fashion Week this past September. Every piece that she creates has a life of its own and healing warmth, which has already won the hearts of fans Billy Bob Thornton, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Cruise, Cameron Crowe and Orlando Bloom.

Diva is also an avid Peet's Coffee drinker and an accomplished actress. For more information about Diva Zappa and “Hand Made Beauty,” please visit: http://www.divazappa.com/.

About Lisa Soltis:
Living in downtown L.A.'s arts district, with her husband Daniel, Lisa Soltis works as a jewelry designer, fine artist, and freelance textile designer. As Daniel sculpts the charms in the couple's jewelry line, Lisa conceptualizes and designs the pieces, combining leather with metal and vintage elements. Both artists passionately scavenge for things old and antiqued, and enjoy incorporating slightly dark and twisted elements into the pieces using aged metals and organic materials. Lisa’s jewelry combines bows and beads with miniature sculptures of cleavers and bird skulls, for an overall striking effect. Lisa Soltis’ pieces are available at EM & Co.

About Veronica Ures:
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Veronica now resides in L.A. with her husband, Gustavo. Veronica’s focus with her jewelry is to create one-of-a-kind pieces that re-capture old glamour. She seeks out vintage and antique pieces that are combined with new materials to create striking pieces that make the wearer stand out in any room. Her designs are modern and edgy, but still maintain a romantic, feminine vibe. Veronica Ures’ pieces are available at EM & Co. For more information about Veronica Ures Jewelry, please visit:
