Barcelona-based Lucia Vergara uses natural and recycled materials for her Après Ski range.
Stylist Lou Stokes spends her days pounding the streets of Madrid seeking out the best fashion finds for her coterie of clients – you’ll find her curated list of local designers and homegrown fashion labels in the LUXE Madrid guide. Here’s Lou’s pick of the crop of Spanish jewellery designers.
Located on the back streets of the evocative Barrio de las Letras, far from the maddening crowds of Gran Via and Sol, Ginger & Velvet is an industrial-style workshop/store home to Maite García Tejedor’s manifold treasures. Taking inspo from daily life, as well as art, music and literature, Maite’s collections are eclectic; spanning sleek geometric forms for the ‘Black’ series to the more delicate ‘Romeo & Juliet’. Every single piece tells a story, which makes each ring, necklace or bracelet truly one of a kind, custom is also available. Ginger & Velvet launches two collections a year. Pop into the shop for a browse, or order online. C / Alameda 4, gingerandvelvet.com
Glenda’s fun, lighthearted and contemporary bod candy is a mixture of art and jewellery. The Valencia School of Art & Design alum crafts individual pieces that are unusual, quirky and made with a sense of humour –mundane everyday items, from chains to legs of Jamon are brought to life in silver and gold. Style-setters will love the oversized signet rings, while kids little and big will go ga-ga for the UFO pendants. glendalopez.es
Delicately handcrafted with a vintage aesthetic, Barcelona-based Lucia Vergara’s Après Ski is inspired by geometric designs (the 'Variations' collection is akin to a dangling Mondrian), and the flora and fauna of the natural world. A former designer with Barca’s Lydia Delgado and Alianto, Lucia works with natural or recycled materials including gold brass, resin and wood to create a collection that’s naive and romantic, casual and modern. Available at Rughara in Madrid and online. apreski.bigcartel.com
