Welcome to Loella Medina Jewelry!

About Loella Medina:
I create beautiful jewelry that evokes feelings of sophistication.
~
"I love how these earrings make me feel so elegant and chic! I feel like I have already travel to New York!" - My mother's customer, Miriam - circa 1990. Santiago, Dominican Republic.

I was only 8 years old and I already knew: A great hairstyle, a beautiful dress and a great piece of jewelry could transform any woman, making her feel elegant, sophisticated, empowered and confident!
It is no wonder, that while my sister collected Barbie dolls and all of their gadgets, I spent my time creating new clothes for these dolls. (Come on!!! Who wants to wear the same clothes every day?!!) I even designed new dresses for our Barbie paper dolls out of old wall paper samples! Yep, I was the in-house designer and dress maker for my sister's Barbie village.

As many others who decided to immigrate to the United States for a better life, my parents, a beautician and a Civil Engineering graduate, have always been very enterprising. In the time it took for our family to be reunited, my father worked in different construction sites and eventually started his own construction company. In the meantime, my mother owned and ran a beauty salon. At some point, before opening his business, my father found a small toolbox at a demolition site. It was filled with pliers, and beads and an idea sparked. He taught himself how to make trendy clip-on and dangly earrings, which he then sent to my mother in the Dominican Republic, where she would sell it to her friends and customers at her beauty salon. It was a perfect and organic collaboration.

Years later, when I moved to NYC, and first visited the American Natural History Museum, I too, had my own experience of being transported to exotic places. I also learned about the beautiful stones our earth has to offer and this is where my love for gemstones was born. My father had moved on from his adventures with jewelry making and I picked up where he left off.

A few years ago, when I was planning my own wedding, I became interested in expanding my jewelry line to offer simple designs that would work well as gifts. This is how La Boda (The Wedding) Collection was born. To view this line, please visit: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LaBodaCollection

All the work you see in my shops is designed and created by me from my home studio based in New Jersey.

❦ PACKAGING AND GIFT WRAPPING:

❦ METALS USED:
Handcrafted jewelry by Loella Medina is made with the following materials:

High quality semi-precious and precious stones, freshwater pearls.

Sterling Silver: Silver with a fineness of 925 parts per 1000 (92.5%) silver and 75 parts per thousand (7.5%) copper, which increases the silver's hardness.

Gold Filled Wire: Gold-filled wire is made by forming a tube of gold and filling the tube with a base metal, usually jeweler's brass. The gold is pressure and heat bonded to the inner core. The gold content is 5% or 1/20 of the total wire. Gold-filled wire for jewelry offers an affordable, durable choice at a much lower cost of solid gold. 14K gold filled wire is also called 14/20 gold filled wire. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate. A gold filled piece of jewelry with normal wear and care should last a lifetime.

*Solid gold available for custom orders.*
