She says "my work is pretty, sure, but it’s also fierce, bold, and timeless. Just like you." Make sure Mom feels that this Mother's Day with a gift from our Corey Egan collection.
When she was five, Corey began drawing, eventually transitioning into painting, carving and sculpting during her teen years and developing the skills that would translate into the wearable treasures she’s known for today.
