About the Artist
Dulce Isalguez Parker is a Caribbean Island native, a cultural educator, and a woman military veteran who has traveled extensively around the world for the last 50 years. As a cultural educator, she has worked with many different cultures, conducting workshops, presentations and cultural diversity training in schools, universities, and Art-Cultural Centers. Her interest in cultures led her to study and collect native gemstones and connect with people. Dulce designs and creates beautiful one-of-a kind handcrafted jewelry using rare Caribbean semiprecious stones, “Larimar” and “Dominican Blue Amber” which are only found in her native country of the Dominican Republic.

Her inspiration and passion come from the natural beauty of her tropical Caribbean Island, its beautiful turquoise blue-green ocean, the tall green mountains, and tropical forests that are the origins of our Dominican Amber. Dulce combines Larimar and Dominican Amber with other natural gems stones, Lapis Lazuli, Red and Pink Corals, Fresh Water Pearls, Glass Bead Crystals, Agates, and Natural Shells. Her jewelry creations are unique pieces set in silver, hand beaded, and hand cut. The rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and pins are a “gift” from nature and have a special meaning to each person.
