Accessories. Shoes. Bags. Jewelry. These, ladies, are the unfortunate, yet beautiful vices in our lives. If we are having a gloomy day or the kids are screaming in their beds because they don’t want to take a nap, simply perusing these items in a store (or on the internet) seems to make us feel just a tad bit better about our circumstances. Am I right? Of course!
Growing up, I was the oldest of four girls and definitely the most sheltered. With that said, I have never owned a lot of jewelry and have a really hard time, to this day, trying to successfully coordinate my jewelry with my outfit. Although I do not own a whole lot, as I have gotten older, my taste has refined and I find myself truly appreciating trends much more.
I recently received a beautiful 14K gold filled wire crocheted bracelet cuff from Adriana Laura Mendez that is truly a piece to be admired. Designed by Adriana Mendez and Julian Oribe, the cuff is intricately woven by hand to make a very unique piece of art a wearable piece of beauty and style.
Adriana Laura Mendez is the quintessence of sophistication and egalitarian spirit. The weaving is unconventional, jewels and sculptures are created on a spiral curl-styled woven base. Adriana’s weaving art is not based on patterns, but rather are developed as her handweaving is in progress. Not influenced by popular trends or short-living fashion trends, this technique makes each piece timeless and everlasting.
Having worn this piece out in public on a number of occasions now, I have yet to have a moment when a friend, or even stranger, hasn’t approached me to admire. It is definitely fun to show off a piece of my jewelry and know that it is handmade, which is huge to me, and one of a kind ~ direct from Argentina!
