mortality, mystery and feligree

Last Saturday Bea Ledesma and Ria Prieto launched their jewelry line dubbed Narra:  Mysterious and Migratory Jewelry.  The stingray like invite alone intrigued me enough to go.  Coupled with the all too attractive notion of handcrafted artisanaIly created finery, and not to mention the venue and time of the said event (I’ve grown fond of afternoon events lately as they don’t snowball into another night out)

twin skulls up top, these immediately caught my eye. and looking below, the display was perfect, expired corals lent a perfect backdrop for the well crafted pieces.

pieces are in 0.925 silver dipped in gold

Bones, shark jaws, fish fossils, skulls, shark teeth, there’s a very morbid feel to this collection, but perfectly balanced by the marriage and romanticization of the designs with precious metals.

I must say the bone cuff was a crowd favorite.  Most pieces are meant to be worn everyday, but do not look out of place at the slightest for a night out or a formal gathering.

Perfect weather and perfect venue.  The desserts from the Cake Club were splendid.

Sunny day-ers.

and of course one of the two designers herself.  Bea Ledesma.
