In 2003, my Aunt and Godmother handed me a gold pocket watch and fob. It had been engraved in 1909 with the relief of the famous “Pharaoh’s Horses”, and belonged to her father, my grandfather.
Right then I decided this family heirloom would launch my next business, a horse jewelry design company named Tempi Design Studio. “Tempi” means change, and I planned to work towards a new dimension in Horse and Equestrian Jewelry Designs. “Studio” kept my connection of the Dental Laboratory Studio I owned and operated for so many years, where detail and custom made was a daily task.
