Born and raised in Brazil, Claudia had an extensive Arts background. She focused her talents in the fashion field by working with some of Brazil's top designers. While visiting New York City in the 1990's she met and married her future business partner, Paulo.
Claudia kept active in the visual arts field by branching out into pottery, paintings, and music, and dabbled with jewelry design in the late 1990s. Her home-grown designs were big hits with family and friends, and after launching an Urban line in SoHo, NYC both Claudia and Paulo decided to expand their business by moving to The Great State of Texas.
They settled in San Antonio and quickly got the attention of San Antonio Spurs' wives and player girlfriends and family. One notable admirer was actress Eva Longoria. Eva loved Claudia’s designs so much that she flew Claudia out the very first day they met to be with her on the set of Desperate Housewives and introduced her to the show stylist, who wanted the line for Eva’s character and on the hit ABC television show. The stylist later told Claudia that no other brand of jewelry was represented more over the lifespan of the show than Claudia Lobao.
Eva continued wearing and spreading Claudia’s name to her friends and Claudia developed a nice following of Hollywood actresses who appreciated her original style.
Claudia started an Artisanal Studio in Brazil where her designs were taught to new Artisans who made Claudia's original and unique and trendsetting designed jewelry
As Director of Design and Development, Claudia today focuses on the development of new products and working directly with her Private label accounts.
