blinged out

We all know Filipinos are talented.

And we read more and more about how Pinoys are making waves in the fashion industry.

But I've just read about one Filipina who's done turning heads on the runway and is now attracting suitors with jewels.

Maritess Damian has crafted diamond studded pieces for clients like Lenny Kravitz and former first ladies of France.

Damian began jewelry making when her modeling career was halted because of a bout with cancer.

Want to know more? An ABS CBN News interview with Damian can be found here.
