She has been designing jewelry for more than 15 years, at first it was a hobby and personal enjoyment, but the passion for design was so strong that it turned into a professional career. After a metals craftsmanship course with designer Denise Elizabeth in PR she refined her skills and gave her passion an expression outlet. Being the daughter of a Master Model Maker of the jewelry industry and the niece of an art teacher she likes to think that she has been bestowed with generational passion and skills.

As a jeweler her approach is unconventional. Her creations are made to be a wearable pieces of art, unique and exquisite, no creations are alike. Most of her creations are inspired by the Amoeba her distinctive patterns and rare shapes are captivating and translate into beautiful designs. Another of this designers many inspirations takes the form of a puzzle pieces, she has a personal attachment to this expression, they remind her of her son and all the kids that struggle with autism.

As unique as each puzzle piece is so are each and every one of these kids, it makes Soto proud as a mother to wear these pieces because it gives her the opportunity to educate people about autism and let them know how special each one is. Soleils Kreations was created 12 years ago with the birth of her beautiful daughter Soleil. “”She is my best collaborator, friend and assistant.

Feeling like a kid on Christmas Morning thanks to RocksBox!

Have you heard of RocksBox? It’s a subscription based service that provides jewelry when you do a quick style survey on their website.  They connect you with items that are relevant to your personal style. Which is so awesome, I really do love this service, and want to explain a bit how it works.

rocksbox First you go on their website and register to an account, they ask you do a quick survey about your style. Then they will fashion the box in what you would typically wear isn’t that pretty cool! You can experiment with the latest designer look and only buy what you love.

I received a cute box filled with designer goodies, which retail from $40-$200 dollars. One of the amazing things about this service is that you can switch out as many times as you like. If you don’t like the box you can send it back free of charge, free shipping both ways. Also if it breaks while it’s with you they will replace it, just send it back to them. If you like what you received you have the chance to buy these designer pieces for a member price.

In my box I received three amazing pieces , it was wrapped beautifully and came in perfect condition. I love the fact that Rocksbox always surprises us with all these different unique jewelry. You know that feeling you get when you were a little kid on Christmas morning and you have no idea whats in the wrapped boxes and once you open your like this is what I always wanted!? Yeah, that’s the feeling you get when you open your first,second,third etc Rocksbox.

It’s a pleasant surprise every time you dig into the box!  This would be a great gift for someone, they offer gift subscriptions too. Wouldn’t that be an amazing gift, giving someone the option to test out three pieces of designer jewelry and they can choose to keep the item or return it for a new set.

The Monthly membership fee is $19/month, $17/mo for 6 months, or $15/mo for a year. You also get to keep the box for 60 days! Say what!? With these options it’s very affordable and you can cancel whenever you like, and they will refund you the remaining left of your membership. You can also receive credits for your purchase by referring friends or family and also by sharing photos of you wearing your jewelry on Instagram or FaceBook and tagging Rocksbox. If you would like more info about Rocksbox click here.
