Firefly – Firefly is one of our most popular lines, and it’s easy to see why. 80 skilled artisans of the Guatemalan village of Santiago Atitlán draw upon generations of knowledge of embroidery and net-weaving, transforming their traditional skills into jewelry-making skills that embody their cultural heritage and aesthetics.
Award-winning master designer Juan Carlos complements these indigenous methods with his own colorful and whimsical designs, and Firefly provides their team of craftsman with the finest imported Swarovski crystals, Austrian beads, and Czech glass to create earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that are bound to brighten your day.
One of Firefly’s most unique traits is their use of vintage jewelry findings to construct their own molds. As a result, one side of a pendant oftentimes displays a unique and colorful mosaic of crystals and glass and the other side contains a subdued and more traditional design. Weaving all their pieces together are hand-threaded oxidized metal chains made of brass with a silver plate finish. The juxtaposition of classic and contemporary make for truly striking pieces.
Firefly is well-known for releasing a new collection every six months, many times with unique designs and colors (like the recently featured padparadscha!). So be sure to check back often for new pieces - they don’t last in the store very long!
