Samantha Dulay is a native San Diegan and award-winning artist. She was born on September 28th in Oceanside, CA. She picked up jewelry making as one of her hobbies as a young child. Her parents were entrepreneurs and she learned at an early age the happiness of doing what you love.
Over the years, her love of making jewelry blossomed into her life's passion, and in 2010 her jewelry line was born. In the end of 2014, Samantha was able to pursue her passion as a full time career. She also began receiving accolades at the San Diego County Fair for her creations (placing in the top three between 2012 to 2016). Most recently, in the summer of 2016 she received a 1st place ribbon for her necklace "Tsunami Uprising", a 2nd place ribbon for her necklace "Infinitely Chained", and a 3rd place ribbon for her set called "Seashell Resonance."
In addition to her many accolades, Samantha is a GIA (The Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad) alumni and is certified in CAD/CAM 3D designing, gemstone setting, and jewelry repair.
Samantha wants her pieces to be a source of expression and beauty for everyone who wears them. "You have to love what you do and create. If other people love and appreciate what you create, it makes the journey all worthwhile." She hopes to inspire those younger than her with her art and help them to realize it is possible to pursue your dreams for your life's mission.
Samantha's jewelry is masterfully created by hand so that each piece is as unique as the individual who wears it. You can find her beautiful creations throughout San Diego county in 14 different galleries, boutiques, and wineries.
