Our Story Of Love


Miss Modi presents LOVE IS LOVE Collection 2019

Miss Modi presents LOVE IS LOVE Collection 2019
Hi friends! Today is an exciting day for me what a great reason it is to share the good news as my very first blog post.

I’m announcing our new Fall collection called “LOVE IS LOVE".  This is the first collection I co-designed and collaborated with our partner Ruby of Little OH! from Taiwan.
As a proud Taiwanese American living in San Francisco, my first inspiration came to me in early 2019 when I read about the Taiwanese LGBTQ+ community and common citizens who were pushing closer to legalizing same-sex marriage. This would make Taiwan the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage! I was really motivated by them and wanted to design a collection that captured the spirit of their movement. I discussed the idea with my partner Ruby of Little OH! Taiwan. She was totally onboard and we started drawing sketches with one goal in mind: to design a beautiful collection that was dedicated to all people fighting for equality, freedom and human rights. A collection that transcended one group or one nation. A collection that represented all those who fought against discrimination, spoke up for themselves, and refused to surrender to bigotry of any kind.  We agreed we had to do it and so we were off.

It took us nearly 6 months from preliminary sketches, schematic design, finalizing the designs, and developing our first prototypes. All our jewelry is hand-crafted and hand-painted (each color taking 8 hours to dry) from start to finish, it was quite a painstaking process to even make a single prototype. Because the original rainbow flag has 6 colors, each prototype would take up to 4 -5 days to create! But this was truly our labor of love and we kept driving on.

In May 2019, we were overjoyed to find out that Taiwan legalized same-sex marriage!  Then in late August, Little Oh! gave me the good news: all our co-designed jewelry passed QA and QC. We were both in near tears because of the good news and the journey it took to co-design this collection. My company received its first samples of the final products and we are happy to announce they are gorgeous and now our first batch is on their way to America as we speak.

How appropriate that my life has landed me in beautiful San Francisco for the past 5 years and that is where I will debut our new co-branded collection titled "LOVE IS LOVE" at RAW natural born artists San Francisco STELLAR @ 1015 Folsom on October 2nd, 2019.  Please come visit us and see our new LOVE IS LOVE collection in person!
Designed in USA + Taiwan and made with much love in beautiful Taiwan.
