Offiicially, Hispanic Heritage Month has come to a close. That said, we at A+T we are always celebrating this diverse, brilliant community. Join us in checking out four amazing Latinx jewelers we carry in our Chicao jewelry store, as well as a few others whose work we love!
Lina Hernandez is a Colombian Jewelry Designer based in New York City.
Her work is fun, playful and mystical, and is inspired by Colombian magical realism,
rooted in the meaning of nature, crystals, and powerful animals.
Bogotá-based anthropologist and fair trade artist Claudia Vallejo trained in fine art, and approaches her work as the narration of a moment in time. Utilizing modern techniques and surprising materials like electrostatic paint and 22k gold powder coating, her pieces are inspired by the crafted and natural world around her.
***Arriving this month at A+T! ***
Buenos Aires-based designer Fernanda Sibilia takes inspiration for her collection from her travels through Latin America. Her collections are every bit a reflection of her inspirational and colorful lifestyle. Each piece is handmade to order in her studio. Her most recent collection is based on Surrealist art's biomorphic forms, concepts of persistent memory, dripping clocks, Fauvist references, and Matisse's unique use of colour and shape.
