The jewels of New York designer Terry Castro, including padlocks and amulets ♦
Like many Americans, Terry Castro also started from the bottom. In fact, before opening his jewelry shop in Manhattan, he sold his ornaments on the pavements in Soho, New York. And he often used materials found a little by chance. But from that experience the designer has learned to assemble stones, metals and different elements to create his jewels: leather, diamonds, silver, gold, bone. Until he presented his creations during the haute couture week in Paris with his brand Castro NYC.
They are jewels different from the usual: they look more like amulets, sculptures, extraterrestrial objects. There are padlocks and surprising dolls dressed up with precious stones and a metal skeleton: according to Terry Castro, the inspiration follows very distant paths. For example, architectures such as the one in Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, or the ancient African art, until shamans amulets. The Infinity Locks are pendants with personalized design, set with precious stones: they represent the infinite energy of the Circle of Life. And among his fans there are star performers like Steven Tyler, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Bibbons.
