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.

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):
Gemstone cupcakes… what a great idea. I don’t understand how this is the first time I hear about this seeing as though I love baking, cupcakes and gemstones! These cupcakes are probably the coolest thing I will see today. Follow the link for a DIY gemstone cupcakes with Alana Jones-Mann.
