Gabriela Artigas (Mexico) - Jewelry That Has a Bite to It

I've met the Artigas sisters (Gabriela designs, Teresita manages) when I lived in Los Angeles. They live together with their brother (who is also in the creative field) in a what I can only describe as a charismatic house, a mix of their Mexican roots and California ease. Everything is refreshingly unpretentious and feels completely organic. What I love about Gabriela's jewelry? There's a hook there, it's minimal, it's feminine but it's not cute. Or romantic. It's strong, but subtle.
