Tina believes that religious jewelry and apparel doesn't have to be identified by the fact that you are wearing a cross or a prayer box. It is about what that piece represents to you spiritually. Many of her designs are named after individuals in the Bible and every piece is delivered with a prayer and the story reflective of its name.
