Last night we surely enjoyed a wonderful night filled with fashion, friends and excellent people.  We gathered at Green Grass Boutique for their annual Art & Accessories Bazaar and gawked at some truly excellent works of art!

Firstly, image and style consultant, Marisol Gomez, welcomed us.  She offered her services and gave us a color analysis on what palettes complement our skin types.  What a revelation!! I was surprised to learn that the colors that best suit me are burnt colors, especially coral.  Well I better do some smart shopping now!!

Later, we walked around and discovered amazing jewelry and art displayed all around the boutique.  The fantastic art exposition was from artists Isa Zapata, Cristina Boter, Jamie Gershen and Rosaura Perez.  The jewelry designers were Citrine by the Stones, Mishky, Crish, Silvana Danies, Equinoccio + Equinoccio, Lola James, Strada di Gioia, Jenny Salinas, Astrid Poletti and Katch.

March 17, 2010 (Miami, Florida) – Exotic pieces filled with free-spirited touches make Silvana Danies jewelry this year’s IT prerequisite for a fashionable summer.  Silvana, an established designer in San Francisco, CA has finally landed in sunny Florida with one objective in mind, introduce her collection of earthy jewelry.  After successfully creating original and one-of-a-kind pieces in California, she knew it was time to spread her wings and reach out to the Eastern Coast; and how lucky we are that she did!

Born in the coastal Caribbean city of Barranquilla. Colombia, Silvana believes in the beauty of raw materials and the fascination we have with their spiritual meaning.  With that in mind, she made sure that every single piece in her collection has intricate artifacts that are carefully crafted with precious gems and metals.  In addition to perfectly maneuvering different materials, and thanks to her psychology studies, Silvana is able to bring passion and psyche together to create pieces that not only are beautiful, but also have extra meaning.  This is what characterizes her pieces and makes them unique, her ability to blend significance along with elaborated designs.

Leather, gemstones, metals and sandalwood are Silvana’s instruments in creating designs that completely manifest that bohemian-chic look sought-out by many.  But it doesn’t end there, Silvana adds a special twist to her designs and includes rough edges in form of Tibetan Horns, skulls and Hamsa symbols.  They adorn many of her necklaces, earrings and bracelets, and bring variety in order to satisfy every taste and style.  “My objective is to transform natural elements into pieces that are inventive, individual and that embrace integrity,” says Silvana.

Silvana Danies creations share one key feature and that is respect for the natural elements, which makes her jewelry line transcend any periodical fashion trend, as it adds spiritual value to any outfit. Therefore, buying a Silvana Danies piece comes with a very special perk, eternal fashion.
