We are in the midst of the National Hispanic Heritage Month!
I wanted to give a shout-out to the Hispanic community by showing some love to some of my favorite Hispanic jewelers.
My first shout-shout out goes to AlejandraInDesign. Her styles are influenced by her heritage, but more importantly by her grandmother’s “subtle yet elegant style”.
She loves to work in fine South Sea Pearls and luscious colored gemstones.
She names her creations whimsical and memorable names. I love that she does that. It tells me how important her creations are to her. One pair of earrings are named “Lavanity.” I don’t know what it means but I like it!
Oscar loves rounded shapes, and asymmetric lushness. His style is unique and very recognizable.
He works mostly in sterling silver and makes bold and fun pieces that are collected all over the world.
Oscar is a Designer of Distinction and much admired by jewelers and jewelry lovers alike. Oscar achieves a unique style with ergonomic designs, of devious shapes and imaginative flair.
Oscar cut his jewelry making teeth in Taxco in Guerrero state, south
Taxco was a pre-columbian silver mining site and has a rich heritage in jewelry making. How appropriate that Oscar learned in an area steeped in silver jewelry tradition.
Isabel Herrera studied jewelry at the Instituto Metallo Nobile in Florence, Italy.
Her early work designing for well known design houses helped her spirited design style grow quickly and shine brightly.
Her design style is refined, emotional and wildly creative. In 2005 she founded Boato Art in Jewels.
She is currently indulging in flowers and dragonfly designs among others. I love her style.
