The Designer

After 35 years in the cosmetic industry where she ranged from owning makeup studios in San Francisco on Union Square, being a celebrity makeup and fashion expert on local and national television, and national spokesperson for the beauty division of a major US corporation, Coreen found a new inspiration: a passion for jewelry.

While living in San Miguel Allende, Mexico, Coreen started silversmith classes and decided that this would be her “second act”. This allowed her to breathe life into her signature style concept: detachable pendants, in varied themes, that would allow the wearer to become her “design partner”. This versatility in charm and chain choices makes Coreen Cordova’s jewelry unique, creative and inspirational. 


Coreen’s lifestyle is as exuberant as her jewelry creations. She is a passionate, lifelong collector of folk art. In her home, Coreen displays her amazing collection of Mexican folk art, paintings, textiles, embroidered costumes, colorful pillows and wearable adornment.



Inspired by her heritage, Coreen embraces the vibrant colors and textures of Mexico. Color is everywhere you look, with the exception of the serene all-white bedroom. With so much to take in, there is also a careful sense of order in the densely-packed, altar-like placements of her collections.

Coreen’s house and lifestyle are an endless inspiration to her artful jewelry.
