Patricia Candido Jewelry

Jewelry designer, Patricia Candido, definitely has a point of view in her mixture of primitive materials and retro techniques. The weaving and use of elements such as feathers reminds me of my macarame days, yet she obviously has a sophistication about her work.

Enjoyed by celebrities like Halle Berry (who I could so picture in one of Candido's chokers), Barbra Streisand, and Rosanna Arquette, this jewelry designer's work has appeared in movies and all kinds of print publications.

Here's more from her bio on her web site:

Each Patricia Candido creation incorporates natural elements and vibrant colors reminiscent of her native Brazil. Beginning with the world's finest precious stones, gold and silver, she combines them with such organic materials as feathers, bamboo and lambskin (unlike others who set gemstones in leather, she uses braided cotton cord denim). Her creations, from a signature collection of 10-20 pieces to custom-made designs, can fetch anywhere between $55 and $750 retail. In less than two years the brand has already been featured on the covers and in the pages of Elle, Marie Claire, InStyle, Lucky, Variety, Fitness and the Los Angeles Times, among other publications.
