Her love of jewelry inspired Lumara to learn how to create her own.

Lumara first created a website to showcase her jewelry before opening a shop on Etsy that she maintains to this day.
Lumara developed a love for dance at the age of 8, when she began her studies of tap and ballet. She added jazz to her repertoire several years later. She studied modern dance at the State of New York at Stony Brook, and then became involved in Middle Eastern dance, commonly known as belly dance. Lumara has taken numerous workshops with stars in the world of belly dance and performed with a local Middle Eastern dance troupe for more than 15 years.
