OUR STORY - CHARLENE BOSCH & GABRIELE TIXI
My husband, an italian, and i, a south-african came to live on the island of Bonaire, in the Dutch Caribbean, in 2011.
We met on the cruise ship Mary Queen 2 where we were both working at the time.
We dreamt of living the island way of life and waking up every morning with sunshine, and so we decided to finally make a go of it after working seven years together at sea.
I started my little dichroic glass business selling my jewelry at the market stand where ships would call for six months of the year.
I found myself working day and night to keep up with the demand… and so we decided to expand our team.
Since then we have added to our Elements family, Sergio and Marilena, my brother and sister in law from Italy who add their Italian flavor and style to each piece.
Now also my mom Stephanie after much persuasion has also joined us.
She was the one who taught me this form of art.
We have built a little studio at our house and this is where the magic happens, and occasionally the cats and the dogs join in on the fun too.
We hope that our creations bring as much joy to the people wearing them as it does to us creating them.
In may of 2014 we had a little baby girl “Zahara” which means bright and shining, and she is the new jewel in our life.
Each piece is truly unique and we could not make two of the same…EVEN IF WE TRIED!!!!
As we make everything ourselves, we are also able to take custom orders, or if you have any special request we are happy to help.
