Simon Alcantra is trained as a classical ballet dancer and pursued his passion for jewelry design as a hobby building a loyal following among the elite ballerinas of New York city. His hobby and loyal following served him well when serious injury ended his ballet career. Simon Alcantara jewelry is a favorite in the Elements Designer Jewelry Collection. Using natural materials such as wood and bone in combination with precious and semi-precious stones, Simon creates unique pieces that blend the exotic and whimsical. His inspiration is found in the strength and spirit of the independent women who wear his designs. Among the Simon Alcantara pieces at Elements are various size Woven Gold Hoop Earrings set with stones in a variety of colors.
