Helena's jewels are the result of dreams, travels and passions. Like all artists, she has created her own world - HLC - where nature, photography, architecture, music or mythology are sources of endless inspiration. The pieces subtly reflect the designer's own personality and sensibilities. It is this highly romantic view of life which makes her pieces so evocative and ultimately so very desirable. In HLC's creative process the search for a meaning is always present.
The brand constantly reinvents the pieces and in the process introduces those fine details which can make all the difference, again a process which reflects the constantly evolving and exciting changes in her own life. It is this creative process that is increasingly attracting not just aficionados of fine jewelry but simply lovers of beautiful things to her distinctive works of art.
