Jill Herasme was born and raised in beautiful Key West, Florida.  She received her Bachelors of Science in Apparel Design from Florida State University and also studied abroad in Paris and London.  After her studies abroad and graduation,  Jill adventured out to make her life long dream of living and working in New York City come true. Designing for major all American brands such as Levi's, Old Navy and Nautica was enough to keep Jill at home in NYC for 10 years.

After working in the fashion industry, Jill was ready for a new challenge. She ventured out again to pursue continuing education at the Fashion Institute of Technology and other jewelry schools in the area. At this time Jill discovered her passion for jewelry design and handmade jewelry. It was then that Jill's Regalia was launched. Using all of her past experiences, Jill is able to use her creativity in a new form of art and design.

 Jill currently resides in Key West  with her husband and daughter.
