ALEX DE HARO
Jewelry is the external expression of beauty and harmony which ornament the body, giving character and personality to the person who identifies with the jewelry they've chosen. My aim is that each piece I make transmits authenticity and connects with the most sublime part of our nature. My work is artisanal, hand crafted and made of sterling silver, 18k gold, gemstones, pearls, kiln fired enamel and other materials.
Alex de Haro, a Barcelona jewelry designer and artisan, has always been fascinated by structures, spaces, nature and the essence of places. Architecture, sculpture and industrial design were all disciplines that inspired him, being surrounded by impressive examples in his native city of Barcelona. However, it was travelling and the direct contact with metals, since his parents were artisans (his father being a silversmith, and his mother specialising in kiln glazed enamel works) that provided him with the impetus to design and create jewelry as a way of life.
He maintains his passion for traveling and his trips usually become rites of passage to self knowledge opening his perspective of the world at both a human and spiritual In 1993, at the age of 23 he initiated the family company Haro Bosch specialising in modern jewelry. In 2009, he started his own company Alex de Haro Contemporary Jewelry...
Isharya was launched as a passion project in 2004 when sisters-in-law Gauri and Radhika Tandon noticed a lack of high quality, Indian inspired fashion jewelry. They set about creating a jewelry assortment consisting of embellished wood and resin jewelry, chandelier earrings, intricate cuffs, and bold cocktail rings to address this void, and named the line ISHARYA after their kids - IShaan, ARmaan and ArYA. Their unique products quickly drew the attention of editors, stylists, celebrities, and retailers who wanted to purchase their jewelry. In 2007, to cater to the demand, they decided to dedicate themselves full time to turn their passion project into a global fashion jewelry brand, while raising their children.
With the co-founders based in Silicon Valley and Mumbai, each Isharya collection strives to express a California chic aesthetic with the allure of Bollywood glam for a truly global feel. The brand is now carried by fine retailers in over 60 countries and has a fast growing ecommerce and social media presence that caters to their global clientele.
Isharya jewelry is handcrafted by artisans and is made upon order with materials available at the time. As such, no two pieces will ever look alike. Please handle with care and store in its own soft cloth pouch...
Irma Bravo is a US-born, Venezuelan designer. Her innovative work is a marriage of architecture and fashion, and of natural and digital inspiration.

Miriam Salat designs jewelry that is an extension of herself; a traveler, adventure- seeker, fashion lover, and intellectual. The result is innovative design and an emphasis on new ways to wear jewelry. Her namesake collection of resin and cubic zirconia was launched in 2010 following the vast success of Bochic, a fine jewelry line that she designs with husband David Joseph. Statement earrings, stacked bangles, oversized cocktail rings, and striking, rich color combinations are a signature of the line that pairs vintage motifs and modern forms.
Not only a jewelry designer, Miriam has advanced degrees in civil engineering and psychology. Her creative and adventurous side has led her to explore the jungles of Papua New Guinea, visit ethnic minorities in Vietnam’s northern mountains, and climb frozen waterfalls in Boulder, Colorado.

Born in Belgium, raised in New York City and a graduate of the famed Fashion Institute of Technology. My interest in art started at an early age by applying my skills through all mediums from paint to photography. Only recently have my passions brought me to jewelry design. I want to create a line that represents the diversity in society, not to follow a trend, but create what inspires me and this line will allow me to do that. Adding classic touches, tribal twists and modernistic forms I hope to create something that stands out from the rest, catches your interest, sparks your creative side and inspires your soul to glow.

Sylca Designs was created from the love and bond between a Mother and Daughter and the passion we share for art and helping women feel confident. We love to teach women how to wear unique, statement jewelry and let go of the age old excuses “I’m too short”, “I’m too old” or the classic “it looks great on her but not me” Our favorite thing to do is to take a simple outfit and add some sass to it with one of our signature Sylca pieces.
Our inspiration for each piece comes from the world around us. We love to bring nature and design together to create a work of art in each design. But really what makes us happiest is being able to follow our passion while giving back to the women who help handcraft each and every piece.

Laurel leaf is a plant used as a seasoning. A seasoning is an edible substance added to food to make it more flavorful to the eater. In this same way, accessories are to clothing as the condiments to food.
Laurel was born in April 2010 as an initiative of the designers Lucrecia de Leon and Lucía Benítez in response to the need of creating their own path within the fashion industry. It designs, develops and manufactures female accessories that combine author design, locally sourced materials and local labor.
Laurel is an Uruguayan brand. Uruguay is recognized on a global scale by its Cattle production. This Industry derives in by-products such as leather and wool, which are the main textile raw material produced in the country.
Consequently, Laurel chooses to work mainly with leather, which is known for being a native, noble and excellent material. Every piece of leather used by our brand is selected directly from where it is produced: the main tanneries in the country.
Laurel offers contemporary and versatile products that gather craft with new processes and technologies.
Laurel´s philosophy implies constant quality and warmth on what is done as well as working with the conviction that the design process must be done “inside out”: From heart and intuition rather than from pure trend...
