Jewelry makes or breaks an outfit.
There's an easy solution if you have a small collection of clothing, or if you simply believe that the clothes you do have aren't intriguing enough for the fashion world. Invest in necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings.
Jewelry is an easy way to add that special something to any outfit. And a jewelry collection doesn't take up as much room as a clothing collection, that's for sure.
This is where Venessa Arizaga comes in. Originally a fashion designer who worked for brands such as Carolina Herrera and Zac Posen, a trip to Puerto Rico in 2007 inspired her to make jewelry, giving her the freedom that she always dreamt of to explore her own aesthetic. Her designs feature bold colored threads woven through sophisticated chains, fun charms dangling here and there.

Arizaga's mixed-media jewelry is expressive, fun, and - most importantly - creative and one-of-a-kind. The unusual pieces will certainly garner many awestruck expressions and enthusiastic compliments.
