I have known Lucia since 1992, and have adored collecting, wearing and selling her works ever since.

Her use of beads, both old and new, reflects her soul and sensibility, and her methodology is approached as an artist, and unlike any other I have seen before.

I am honored to have Lucia and her works in my stable of artists at Patina Gallery.
