We’re back from our Latin American tour and we’re here to give you the rundown on our latest scouts. Change of season, end of lockdown, bored in the house... there are too many reasons to give yourself and (in this case) your jewelry box an upgrade.
While we can’t take you to a beach, we zipped to Bogota, Medellin, and Caracas for you. We brought home the top three jewelry designers that guarantee best bling that no one else has (yet). The common trend is beading, in every form and technique. The attention to detail these designers give their handcrafted jewelry makes each piece a work of art. Meet the most talented independent and artisanal Colombian jewelry designers of the season..
Bocanegra is a zero waste brand that innovates, and empowers women who want to accentuate their femininity and elegance. What makes Bocanegra unique is the language of patterns. Polyhedric combination of colors, sizes, and textures are created from a leitmotif hexagon silhouette using special glass beads.
