|(Lindsay Ahart – Designer of Savi Coco)|
I started to do surf art and beach-inspired art close to 10 years ago. I thought it would be cool and fun to turn my art into jewelry. I like adding fun sparkle pieces to accent my piece of art. One day, someone asked me if I could use one of their pictures. So I took their picture and turned it into a piece of jewelry for them. So now I do beach and personal jewels!

I love the name! Can you talk about its origin?
I grew up in Burbank, but went to college at San Diego State University and still have a house there…I love SD!How did you get into jewelry design?
I wanted to take my artwork to a different level so I started doing jewelry about a year ago.

What type of woman do you design for?
Any age or type of woman or girl that enjoys a whimsical and beachy vibe. Anyone that would like their own image turned into a charm!
If you were stranded on a tropical island, and could wear only one piece from your jewelry collection…which one would it be?
My favorite is “Tropical Bliss.” This was inspired when I was in Hawaii and takes me to that moment every time I wear it. It makes me happy!
