The second marine love of Daniela Villegas




The crabs seen by Daniela Villegas, the second love after the insects ♦
That Daniela Villegas is a lover of nature is known. But it is curious to observe how, within his observation of the natural world, there are aspects to which the Mexican-born designer based in Los Angeles is more interested. The most beloved world is, perhaps, that of insects. Big, small, grotesque if transformed into jewelry: beetles and relatives are among the subjects that have become more sources of inspiration. But another strand is that of the sea. And, in particular, to animals that most resemble insects: crabs. With menacing claws that show off large transparent gems, the crabs are interpreted by Daniela Villegas with colored stones, with strong colors, such as tourmalines and opals, next to gold and diamonds. They are above all rings and pendants, with a vaguely tropical flavor. On this page you can see some of the crabs that make up the designer’s collections. Giulia Netrese
