You don’t need to be a classically trained fine artist with a Master’s degree in Contemporary Art to design jewelry, but one look at Aurora Diaz Bailey’s creations and there’s no denying her background certainly helps! The Guanajuato-born designer integrates Mexican motifs and textures into both her paintings and her accessories. Her primary inspiration, though, comes from nature, or more specifically, rocks. For that reason, she handpicks each precious and semi-precious gemstone used in her one-of-a-kind pieces, including those in the lovely Tetzo drop earrings and Epyo pearl necklace. Aurora selects them with Mayan, Aztec, Toltec, and Spanish shapes and colors in mind, infusing her own identity into each elegant accessory. Style and substance – doesn’t get any better than that! Aurora Bailey jewelry available on Aurora Bailey.
