I first met LA-based jewelry designer Gabriela Artigas in 2010 at her West Hollywood boutique House on Genesee. And I’ve long admired her delicate rings and statement necklaces, which are carried at some of my favorite local shops including Ten Over Six and Mohawk General Store. Lucky for me, I recently reconnected with this Mexican-born beauty when her brother Alejandro participated in my reading series Eating Our Words (this is a very talented family – you should try their mother’s salsa!). Gabriela invited me to see her studio, where she lives and also designs her beautiful line of fine jewelry. From the cobalt blue door, to the stacks of diamond eternity bands to Gabriela’s super rad t-shirt, our visit was delightful. Gracias, Gabriela!
