Ishi

I recently discovered this Mexican jewelry brand called Ishi. I believe the designer behind this amazing endeavor is Regina Barrios. Ishi works with local artisans in Mexico to create “amulets, pieces that carry the good vibes of the people that make them and the energy of the materials we use. Our goal is to create beautiful accessories that enrich our customers’ lives as well as to promote the professional and creative development of our artisans” (via their website http://ishi.mx/about). You can see the intricate craftsmanship in their pieces; they are very raw and natural and that is why I think I’m so attracted to this brand. The materials used are simple.

In the last couple months I haven’t been able to stop myself and I’ve bought 2 different pieces and got 1 as a gift from a friend. This brand has a store in Mexico City, which I really love (only store I actually buy anything in, in Mexico) called Lago DF. They carry different clothing brands, but only Ishi jewelry. Everyone I take to the store falls in love with it immediately and they all leave with at least 1 piece of jewelry.

They have their jewelry all over the world. If interested checkout their stockists: http://ishi.mx/stockists or you can also follow them on IG https://www.instagram.com/ishimex/

Obsessed!

How amazing is this Irene Neuwirth that Lena Dunham got to wear to the CFDA Fashion Awards. I really love the mix of colors, gems and shapes. Please note the bunnies by the opal.. and obviously the OPAL! ❤ Also love the random diamonds  scattered around the necklace. Stunning.

Inspiration of the Day: Behati in Jacquie Aiche

I don’t know how this happened, but two of my favorite people in the fashion and jewelry world came together and made this awesome campaign. It is the Jacquie Aiche campaign featuring Behati Prinsloo. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from the campaign (all pictures from http://jacquieaiche.com/pages/behati):

Online Jewelry Shopping

The holidays are right around the corner and the time has come to look for gifts. I love to give jewelry as a gift, one of the easiest ways to shop for jewelry, like everything else, is online.

There are many ways to shop for jewelry online. One of the ways is by going to the actual jewelry designer’s website and check if they have an online shop. The other way, my favorite way, is to go to different online shops and buy it from there. The reason why I like to shop through online shops is because I like that they have a variety of designers and jewelry; I really enjoy looking at what pieces each store chooses to sell to the customer because their way of selecting them tells me a lot about the overall concept and style of a store.

These are the online shops I buy from:

Colette is one of those treasures that the fashion world has to offer. I love it! It is a store in France who has the best selection of everything: jewelry, clothes, technology, books, art, design, etc. Their jewelry selection is simply the best I’ve ever seen, they carry designers like Repossi, Pamela Love and Ca & Lou. The only thing is that most jewelry pieces are expensive. But this is a great place to find an extremely unique piece like special editions! Check out their watches (OMG).

Their selection of jewelry and designer definitely fits their overall style and concept. They choose designers like Delfina Delettrez and Vanessa Arizaga who are very trendy and alternative. I love OC’s pieces, they really know how to choose because they always have pieces you won’t find in a lot of places.

Barney’s New York http://www.barneys.com

Great jewelry selection and a lot of variety (great for clothes as well)! Barney’s is just one of the go-to online websites that you go to when you are looking for a gift or something in specific.

Etsy- https://www.etsy.comUnknown

Etsy is a great website to find artisanal products. I’m currently very much into artisanal designers and products (will definitely write a post in the near future of which artisanal designers to keep an eye out for), and this is a great way to find them.

Much like Barney’s, NAP has great variety and selection and an awesome place to find a gift or something you need. I like how they have a “jewelry” category, which is cheaper jewelry, and then the “fine jewelry” category, which is obviously more expensive.

Broken English- https://brokenenglishjewelry.comScreen Shot 2014-12-01 at 8.45.24 PM

Broken English has a lot of great designers like Anita Ko and Jacquie Aiche. It really isn’t my first choice to look for jewelry but it is good and I still like to come here and see what’s new.
