Gloria is the Creative Director and Founder of Onirikka, a fine jewelry accessories business that offers bold, symmetrical pieces that speak to a customer’s desire for individuality and elegance, with a focus on impeccable workmanship. The brand’s name, Onirikka, originates from the word “Oneiric”, meaning “from dreams”. Their core intention is to awaken the dreamer in all of us and inspire individuals to pursue their purpose.

These themes are forged together to create a contemporary and edgy design for the modern woman. As the Creative Director, Gloria is motivated by new ideas and enjoys the process of designing pieces that empower women to dream. Gloria studied at the Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School in Florence, Italy and has completed the Jewelry Design Program at the Gemological Institute of America in New York City.
