As a child Hovey adored her mother's great sense of style and always loved the visits to tailors and jewelers. She was also enchanted by the eclectic designs and custom furniture her father, an interior designer, created for their home. Hovey has a degree in music as well as library science, but jewelry making has been apart of her life since her teenage years. With the constant encouragement and support from her friends and family, Hovey launched her own jewelry line in 2005 and instantly captured the attention of both the fashion and art communities. She was selected by Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion as the accessory designer that same year.
Hovey's collection is inspired by both design forms and by world cultures. She studies the essential design elements from different ethnic styles and fuses them with her California sensibility to create a stylish, interesting and fresh look.
