Born and raised in Mexico, Sara Beltran started her career in New York as a stylist.
Her childhood romance with beach life and seashells always lingered in the back of her mind, and literally, on the shell necklace she handmade for fun. After 12 years working in the fashion world, she created her own line called Dezso, the Latin word for "Desire".
Always inspired by her love for the ocean, she travels to different beaches around the world for constant inspiration. A lot of her pieces are shells that she picks from the sea and then makes a mold and then casts in 18 carats gold, mostly pink gold. She loves using raw material as well such as polki diamonds, kyanites stones, fossilized shark teeth and fossilized shells.
Now sharing her time between New York and Jaipur, she has discovered a whole new world in stones, as she is doing her own carved stones in shape of shells.
