I’m Cloyette Harris-Stoute, the face behind Twin Elegance. My jewelry collections are designed to inspire confidence and bold self-expression. Centered around elements of strength and self-love, and made only from nickel-free, hypoallergenic materials, my interchangeable aesthetic is infused with heart and pear-shapes and natural gemstones rooted in rich spiritual meaning and timeless history. A native of Guyana, I am also deeply inspired by tropical and historical elements from her homeland. With versatility in mind, each piece of jewelry is expertly handcrafted to tell a unique story of an empowered, fashion-forward woman with a flair for elegance and a unique sense of style.
My interest in jewelry began in 2008 as a representative for a catalog jewelry brand. With a burning desire to learn the craft and evolve in the jewelry industry, I studied design and metalsmith at the Jewelry Arts Institute in New York City, and later at the Art League of Long Island. Due to family obligations, I was forced to put my designing dreams on hold for a few years. In 2020, I merged my twin passions, women empowerment with jewelry designing and launched Twin Elegance.
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.
The Twin Elegance tagline "Confidence Wrapped in Jewels" is a reminder for women to embrace their inner elegance, be their authentic selves and shine with confidence. With my love for youth empowerment, I have committed to giving back 10% of all profits to programs that support leadership development for teen girls.
