About us

"Desert Moon forms from two things. Our love of roaming around summer nights in LA's urban streets we call home and dreaming of alternate universes we would like to call home." -Vanessa

Desert Moon is locally handmade in Los Angeles by designer Vanessa Cotto. 

Vanessa fell in love with making jewelry in 2010 while living in San Francisco. We hate to say but love that it happened but making jewelry came about after a break-up. As we all know break-ups are difficult, but Vanessa turned it around and decided to invest her time into making beautiful, one of a kind jewelry for her close friends and family. Through the years she's worked countless hours on delivering jewelry and accessories that scream free spirited with a twist of celestial vibes.
