Accessory Spotlight: Nicaraguan Designers

 (post image was changed 2 days later because i didn't like the layout ... it seemed cluttered, hope this looks better)

the last info on my resume reads INTERESTS and the two bullet points read
  • accessory hunting, cooking, modern art and traveling
  • my fashion blog, beatricecatchesfashion.blogspot.com
man, DO I LOVE to buy accessories, dive into my moms vintage, miss the Italian flee markets, and continue to try to master the skill of accessory designing - I've tried all sorts of bracelets, anklets, and headbands. it's definitely a skill i'd love to possess. however, i'll just continue shopping and looking for new designers.

Therefore, I present to you not just one but three exceptional Nicaraguan accessory designers that are not only spreading wings in Nicaragua but in Chile, Argentina, and Australia. At the moment, all two of the three are part-time designers (lawyer, architect student) but all three have managed to present their collections with rave reviews.

Georgina describes her brand to be a mixture of silver, 18 karat gold-plated silver, leather, 'carey' designs decorated with semi precious stones and other diverse natural elements that highlight femininity. This past December, GEO debuted her latest collection named 'Aurum' at the SS12 Shantall Lacayo runway show.

My recent obsession and discovery has been young designer, Gabriela, who turned her dream into reality in 2011. She describes Sunday to Sunday, to be more than just a jewelry line, but a concept, a lifestyle. For every woman out there who isn't afraid to be herself and stand out rather than blend in. That's exactly the kind of jewelry and brand i love! Not only is her mission a statement but so are those pieces! Can't wait to get my hands on them.

Karla's brand caught my eye not only because of the massive rings but because she works with recycled silver! She combines swarovski crystals, semi precious stones, river pearls, wood, and sea shell oysters found across the Nicaraguan beach coasts! Reminds me of the jewelry from Indonesia - pure, eclectic, and bold.
