Mexican Designer: Dezso by Sara Beltran

 IMG_4967

Dezso is a brand by the Mexican designer Sara Beltran. Her jewelry is inspired by her greatest loves: the beach/ocean, Mexico and India. Her influences are clearly seen in her jewelry using the ocean and the beach as a theme and main in inspiration for her collections by adding shapes like shark fins, shells, and palm trees. You can see India in her work through the gemstones she chooses and the hand-work of the jewelry. Mexico as her influence is seen in her use of color and materials. I have a few of her Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetpieces and they are some of my favorite pieces in my jewelry box.

She is currently part of the CFDA Incubator (Council of Fashion Designers of America) therefore has her studio in New York amongst other CFDA Incubator designers. She lives between New York City and Jaipur, India which is where she makes most of her jewelry.

I got a chance to visit Sara at her studio in NYC and she showed me some of the things from previous collections as well as some of the things that she’s been working on for her next collections. Around her studio she has corals, shells, sea findings, palm tree images, India imagery and lots of books. Her style and inspiration is definitely transmitted in her studio, you feel like at the beach in the middle of New York City.
