With her sister, Teresita, managing business operations, Los Angeles-based designer Gabriela Artigas’ eponymous jewelry label is deeply informed by an unwavering family-oriented ethos. In addition to guiding the label organizationally, this sense of kinship effectively permeates its aesthetic inclinations. Artigas’ minimalist designs are informed both by her roots in Mexico City as well as by those closest to her: her grandfather’s notable career as a modernist architect inspires sculptural contours while her artistically-dynamic group of friends, ranging from rock musicians to restaurateurs, provide an inexhaustible source of creative stimulation. Designed and handcrafted in Los Angeles with luxury materials, like gold, sterling silver, precious stones, and genuine pearls, Artigas’ creations act contradictorily as temporally-relevant adornments and everlasting heirloom pieces, to be passed down from one generation to the next. Artigas’ signature pieces, including the tusk hair stick and double-fingered ring, explore this notion of contradiction further by coupling clean lines with organic curves, and architectural silhouettes with delicate embellishments. The harmony effortlessly captured by Artigas’ minimalist creations exude a timeless elegance to be treasured throughout a lifetime.
