At just 8 years old Zoe Aiche is mixing colors, layering pieces and incorporating eyes, tassels and charms in every hue on the color spectrum. This ambitious Mini is a natural, following her heart and having fun with every piece of jewelry she creates. As the daughter of adored jewelry designer, Jacquie Aiche, Zoe has been surrounded by gorgeous jewels and baubles since day one. She's a sucker for sparkles, but who isn't?! This little lady takes a lot of her inspiration from out-of-the-box brands and designers like Tutu Du Monde and Mara Hoffman. Her gender-neutral collection is simply stunning. We are in total awe of Zoe and all that she's accomplished at such a young age.
