Begona Rentero: Brooches

Spanish designer Begoņa Rentero, originally from Granada, grew up in a family that had a profound respect for nature and the environment. These early influences developed into a passion for organic forms, color and movement inspired by nature. Begoņa later translated this passion into a jewelry collection featuring a series of unique pieces. The colors and organic shapes of winter flowers, flora and sea fauna have inspired her latest collection of hand-made, exquisitely crafted jewelry. The pieces are made of special paper, fibers of silk, cotton, et cetera, that she prepares with a method she has developed to toughen them up for daily use, without compromising their delicate, organic aesthetic. Using only natural dyes her pieces both reflect and respect the environment and, as she says, "are so light you have to touch them to know that you're wearing them."

All items listed in this category are original works of jewelry art by Begona Rentero, made entirely by hand; slight color variations in the final product’s handmade fibers is natural. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
