Using materials like snakeskin, lamb leather, silk and special palm fiber hand woven by women in the Philippines, she is able to give back while building her brand

For this event, Liza is giving 30% discount on the silk scarves and 15% discount on the bags, belts and bracelets.  We are also giving away 2 silk scarves during every hour of the event.

In addition to showing you her new line, which is currently sold exclusively in Germany and in Denmark, where Liza resides, she can give you insight on golden South Sea pearls and what makes them so precious and highly sought after in today’s modern world.
