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/

Wild Air & Co. is one of my most recent and priced discoveries. This jewelry brand is still small (they still only have a Facebook page from what I’ve seen) but with a bright future ahead of them, I know it because they are really talented. Their jewelry is handmade, and there is something so charming and special to me about jewelry that is still done by hand. I am getting more and more into artisanal jewelry and Wild Air & Co. is one of the coolest brands I’ve seen in that branch of jewelry.

Really great, special and simple designs! Also cheap.

They sell their stuff through Etsy. Check them out: https://www.etsy.com/shop/WildAirCo
