Love Heals is the mother, son and daughter team of Adriana, Gunnar and Elisa. We handcraft all our jewelry in our workshop nestled in the golden hills of Ojai, California. Many adventures and much hard work have brought us here. Adriana fled a dangerous military dictatorship in Argentina as a young woman, escaping to London, where she began supporting herself as a jewelry artist, selling her work in Portobello Rd. Adriana's roaming, gypsy spirit took her all over Europe, eventually settling in Ibiza, Spain, where she gave birth to her son Gunnar in a 400 year-old farm house with no electricity or running water. In 1979, the family relocated to Santa Barbara, California, where she launched her American career. Little Elisa was born right here in Ojai. In the last ten years Gunnar and Elisa have joined their mother to help nurture the creative and spiritual endeavor that is the unique vision of Love Heals. We hope to provide a window into our work, our lives and our dedication to sharing beauty and compassion with the world.
At Love Heals, our designs embody our commitment to spirit, nature, and service. With your help, we are delighted by the opportunity to plant 10 trees for every piece of jewelry you buy. In the last few years, we have been able to plant 404,212 trees in Africa and the United States. These special Love Heals Trees will offset a major amount of global carbon emissions for the planet over the coming years. Our newest partner to join our effort is Greener Ethiopia (www.greenerethiopia.org), managing a unique program to plant fruit-bearing and forestry trees in Ethiopia, providing villagers with both work and food, and significantly eliminating the temptation to use these trees for fuel. In 2010 we have started sending a team to Ethiopia to document the progress of these trees. We will be posting and sharing photos of these journeys as we get them.
