As a senior in high school, my appreciation for all things stylish while still keeping my feet planted firmly on the ground earned me the nickname of “Huppie.” [(hupp-ee) n. - An individual that blends at least one or more characteristics from the personification of a Hippie and a Yuppie.]
I dove headfirst into my creative passions without ever losing sight of the importance of a strong commitment to academics. Music played a major role in my life, and I began to pursue my ultimate goal of working on Broadway, no matter if it were on the stage, in the pit, or anywhere else.
Since school, my career as a master cellist has afforded me the opportunity to perform in front of crowds around the world. Every time I travel to a new country I absorb as much of the local culture as possible. I believe that the beauty that surrounds us is either quickly forgotten once we return from holiday or is overlooked because we are too busy with our narrow view of the location through a camera lens.
Those influences are what led to the creation of Huppie Designs. We specialize in handcrafted jewelry pieces that feature real resin-dipped orchid with either sterling silver or gold plate adjustable toggle. Every blossom we use is carefully picked, preserved, and then made into beautiful statement pieces. They are then shipped in self-sustaining boxes, ready for you to wear or share as a gift.
Each orchid comes to you just as nature created—uniquely. No two are ever the same, and it’s for that reason that all of our creations are only available as a onetime offering. Once a particular design is gone, it’s gone forever! Spend some time perusing our catalog, but once you find a few favorites, be sure to order them quickly before someone else does!
