Daniela Villegas: precious insects, nature, plants, between Mexico and fantasy ♦ ︎
Daniela Villegas has a double luck: she lives in a own colorful world even when the story seems to paint the life of humanity in black and white. She also has the privilege of being born in a country, Mexico, which is perhaps colored by law. You can not be avoid to get dazzled by the tinged Mexican shades that lie in the natural landscape, in the plants, and even in the wildlife, from big to tiny animals.
It is impossible, then, to create jewels without carrying the color palette on brooches, necklaces and rings. And more, Daniela has a fantasy that seems born from Alice in Wonderland, the knowledge of stones and a personal preference for craftsmanship. An so it is understood why Daniela Villegas’s jewels can be so above the norm, to be surprising and, of course, be so sought after by enthusiasts and collectors. The lines of his collections are, though not exclusively, inspired by two subjects: insects and Mexican nature, which she knows well even though she is living between Los Angeles and Paris.
