Colette Steckel

Except for my Fabergé Friday posts, there have been too little sparkling stuff on this blog lately. Time to change that! The jewelry designer I'll show you today is a woman named Colette Steckel. For the past fifteen years she has been designing and creating her own jewelry, and today she is one of Mexico's most renowned jewelry designers. Her inspiration comes from Mexican pre-Hispanic images and culture, as well as from her studies of French art and graphic design. She works with gold of different colors and both precious and semiprecious stones, and says she wants to enhance the natural light of a stone and expose multiple natural hues that have rarely been brought to light before. On her website you find several different collections, and here are my favorite pics from each of them!

  1. One might think it's sick that I'd like all of these gems in my jewelry box, on me, everywhere!! Love love. I love how some obviously look like insects, but some of the others look like secret weapons, you could like whip them off and take out the bad guy and then walk away in your stunning vintage gown and put them back on as if nothing happened...yesss!! I'd love it :)) It could happen ;))

  2. I love all of these Miss Meadows, they're all so amazing and intricate, only a real classy lady could pull them off, great photos.
