Gorgeous jewelry with a heartwarming story
La Glamour Style is super-excited to introduce you to Mishky: the company behind this new, gorgeous-looking and trendy fashion jewelry.
Their stunning jewelry is not just beautiful, but has a whole story behind it.
Mishky designs come from the creative minds of Tita Navia and Martha Duran—two passionate Americans with experience in the fashion world.
Mishky jewelry is hand-made by Columbian stay-at-home mothers in low-income areas. These women are trained to become expert artisans through a foundation called “Mi mamá para mi” (“My mom for me”). The foundation gives them the techniques to become skilled craftswomen and make an income, while at the same time being able to stay home and look after their children.
As the Mishky website says, “With every (1) hour of work from home, one (1) Mishky bracelet is produced and one or more kids enjoy more time with their own mother, learning, studying, and sharing love.”
We first saw these magnificent Mishky jewelry items at our last accessories show and we immediately fell in love with these pieces. Their bracelets, necklaces and earrings are all handmade with a distinctive knotting system. The bracelets are beaded with class A-quality glass beads; or woven with ancient Egyptian looming techniques with a variety of vibrant colors and materials such as gold-plated and silver-plated metal pieces, Greek leather and Italian waxed thread.
You can find these bracelets in different widths, with adjustable cuffs to ensure comfortable wear. And the colours are candy for the eyes! Mishky jewelry works well with any look—they are so easy to pair with your outfit, whether for day or night.
Meanwhile, each piece embodies passion, love and art: the making of it, the colours used, the tiny silver pearls, the gold plating, and the quality.
This is sure to be this year’s new trend—and I’m sure all your fashionistas will fall in love with Mishky designs as much as we have at La Glamour Style! I wear my pieces with pride; and I hope you will too.
