Meet the Founder

Hey there,

I’m Cloyette Harris-Stoute, the face behind Twin Elegance. My collections are designed to inspire confidence and to deliver a spirit of sophistication.

Centered around elements of  strength and love, my bold interchangeable aesthetic is infused with heart and pear shaped natural gemstones rooted in rich spiritual meaning and timeless history that tells a unique story. With versatility in mind, each piece is expertly handcrafted to provide multiple styling options.

Born in Guyana, South America I moved New York more than 25 years ago. My interest in designing 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 and but decided to put my designing dreams on hold for a few years due to family obligations. During my hiatus, I established a women's empowerment blog and a non-profit for mentoring girls in my current hometown of Queens, New York.

In 2020, I decided to merged my twin passions, women's empowerment with jewelry designing, and launched my own line of demi-fine collections to encourage women to embrace their inner elegance and shine in their greatness.
