I’m Cloyette, the face behind Twin Elegance. My jewelry collections are designed to inspire confidence and bold self-expression.
Centered around elements of strength and love, my interchangeable aesthetic is infused with heart and pear shaped natural gemstones rooted in rich spiritual meaning and timeless history. With versatility in mind, each piece is expertly handcrafted to tell a unique story of an empowered woman with a flair for elegance and a captivating sense of style. My Guyanese roots has always been a source of pride and subtle references to tropical and historical elements from my homeland can also be seen in many of my designs.
My interest in jewelry began in 2008 when I joined Silpada Ambassador Program. A social introvert, my preference for bold pieces often drew attention and were great conversation starters. I went on to study design and metalsmith at the Jewelry Arts Inc in New York City, and later at the Art League of Long Island but I had to put my designing dreams on hold for a few years due to family obligations. In 2020, I decided to merged my twin passions, women empowerment with jewelry designing, and launched my own line of Demi-Fine jewelry.
When I'm not designing jewelry, I'm sharing inspiring stories about exceptional women from my country and community on my blog, Guyanese Girls Rock!, or leading a mentoring and leadership development program for teen girls through my non-profit, Guyanese Girls Rock Foundation, Inc. My motto "Confidence Wrapped in Jewels" is a reminder for women to embrace their inner elegance and shine with confidence. I'm committed to giving back 10% of all profits from Twin Elegance to programs that support leadership development for teen girls.
