Over the last 18 years, Barbara and her team of designers have developed spectacular designs that today include the renowned collections: Medicine Woman, Signature, Hanalei Pearls, Wilderness Stones, Namaste Gems, and Maya. Each of these collections consists of a wide range of the highest quality stones, metals, pearls and gems.

‘Foreste’ and ‘Hils’ are the names of Barbara’s daughters who 17 years ago while stringing  pasta, paper chains, and wooden beads, inspired their mother’s creative energy and entrepreneurial talents, prompting a worldwide enterprise filled with passion for extraordinary jewelry design.

Foreste + Hils Designworks  enjoys an international reputation for one-of-a-kind jewelry along with other design concepts including swimwear, hair accessories, notecards, and painted jeans. Today, all proceeds go to Barbara’s non-profit organization: Whole Champion Foundation. Barbara Edelston Peterson’s work is uniquely customized with meticulous finish work, and sold throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
