Sara Beltran began her fashion career in New York, where she worked as a stylist. Inspired by a love of beach life and affinity with the ocean going back to her childhood, Beltran started her design career when she was very young, making shell necklaces for fun. Today, she boasts her own jewelry line, Deszo, which is Latin for "desire". Continuing to draw inspiration from sea life, Beltran travels to different beaches around the world seeking out her next designs. Deszo by Sara Beltran necklaces are made using raw materials such fossilized sea shells and shark teeth, which Beltran makes molds from and casts in 18-karat gold. Precious and semi-precious stones in grays, blues, greens and turquoises also evoke the color and spirit of the ocean throughout the Deszo collections.
