Monica SordoView Products
Venezuelan designer Monica Sordo is known for her architecturally-inspired sculptural jewelry, from earrings forged by the influence of Italian architect Carlo Scarpa to chokers and bangles created by her exploration of South America's indigenous roots. We simply cannot overstate how striking, how bold yet elegant her pieces are.
Each one, by the way, is made by hand in Peru by local artisans —mostly women. And speaking of Peru, if you're ever in Lima, do not forget to stop by Mario Testino's museum: Monica is the curator behind the exquisite selection of Bodega MATE, the institution's shop featuring more than 30 Latin American craft and design brands.
