The trigger to create Poseidon was set in the darkest hours of my life, when I felt frightened, vulnerable and in need of protection. Primarily I designed this collection to be used in self defense. Even though that notion has faded throughout this project, it still does exist. Poseidon is my first official collection and is aimed at strong women. It is meant to give the wearer the feeling of strength, power and confidence. Poseidon was the god of the sea and, as "Earth-Shaker," of earthquakes in Greek mythology.
