Semana de la Joyeria Contemporanea: Jewelry!!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPicOooh, what girl doesn’t love shiny baubles and bits to adorn herself?
Elegant chandelier earrings to dress my lobes.
A giant cocktail ring to set off a fresh manicure.
Ethnic chunky seed bead bracelets when I am feeling boho chic or nautical inspired bangles to show off my American pride.
A modern bib-necklace to make a plain white American Apparel T seem a little more edgy.
Jewelry collecting is my new obsession. I don’t have a huge jewelry assortment of gems and I am sure it’s worth peanuts in comparison to what Kimora Lee Simmons has in her jewelry box but I am proud of what I have and am always looking to add more.

This is the precise reason why I and a girlfriend trotted down to Convent dels Angels to drool over, contemplate about and try on complementos (accessories) featured in Joya A la Carte and Beauty & The Best, two highlighted exhibitions supported by Barcelona’s Semana de la Joyeria Contemporanea initiative.

Some of the artists I fell in love with were Bulgarian designer, Senay Akin, for her skill at combining fairytale whimsy with modern industrial materials; Katherine Wardropper’s sculpted fabric pieces (pictured above-exquisite); Anthony Roussel’s birch wood and cork bangles (works of art that deserve to be displayed either on wrists or a pedestal).

Known for being a hotbed of artists and creative types, Barcelona always offers plenty of opportunities to satisfy your art collecting and consumerism cravings.
