This month we celebrate Hispanic heritage. Each year, America observes National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
If you identify as one or many, Latina, Latinx, Afro-Latina, Hispanic, we HONOR & CELEBRATE you, plus the many that came before us! Drop a flag in the comments of our blogs, social media post, or simple email us back to show us where you’re from! Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
"Using silver, 18K gold, and stones, Analya Cespedes creates pieces that are wearable and sometimes playful. They reflect her attraction to an aesthetic rooted in nature and her approach to jewelry as a language that needs no words."
Analya Cespedes started making jewelry over 20 years ago, under the instruction of Jaime Rosselot and Ricardo Libedinsky, in her hometown, Santiago, Chile. After moving to the U.S., she continued her education in the jewelry department of MICA (Maryland College Institute of Arts), while working as a foreign correspondent in Washington, D.C. for a Chilean daily.
Her training as a writer informs her approach to jewelry as a language that needs no words. Much more than adornment, it serves as a diary that documents meaningful events happening in her life, an obsession with a shape, a material or a color that lingers in time.
