The jewelry of Mexican sculptor and jewelry designer Graciela Fuentes is like an ode to Old World craftsmanship. Her line Tirana Jewelry (named after her DJ name “Tirana del Amor” or “Tyrant of Love”) features pieces made from recycled materials and objects found at antique markets. We particularly love this bold ring showcasing old watch parts. You might be getting your time on some high-tech mobile phone or iPad, but this ring will always remind you of a simpler time… and maybe cause you to take things a bit slower.
