Stylist turned designer, Sara Beltrán started her fashion career in New York. After 12 years of New York life, Beltrán now calls Jaipur and Mumbai home. Her childhood romance with beach life always lingered in the back of her mind, and literally, in the shell necklace she made herself for fun. She now designs a line of jewelry called Dezso, latin for "desire." She travels to different beaches around the world in search of inspiration. In fact, a lot of her pieces revolve around shells that she picks from the ocean and casts them in 18K gold; often pink gold. She uses a lot of raw materials such as polka diamonds, fossilized shark teeth, fossilized shells and being base in Jaipur has opened her eyes to a whole new world of stones that she carves into shell shapes.
