About ViajeraDesigns

Sales 230
On Etsy since 2016

Handcrafted sterling silver jewellery inspired by the natural world & traditional cultures.

Viajera Designs is stylish, handmade jewellery inspired by people and places around the globe with a modern twist.

As I like to have stand-out jewellery with a story, many of my pieces are one of a kind, but form part of a collection that is inspired by a specific country or culture.

STYLE
You'll find that the overall style of my pieces balances rough cut gemstones in delicate finished items. The result: statement pieces that will stand out even when worn casually.

BACKGROUND
Viajera means 'traveller' in Spanish, symbolising the start of my passion for jewellery making.
I'm a self confessed jewellery addict and, as someone who loves really unique pieces, I've always been interested in making my own. My love of silver has come from many years working and travelling in Latin America - from working with a Mexican silversmith on a piece I designed myself, to finding myself deep in a Bolivian silver mine and buying up half the continent of this gorgeous metal!

I now have 2 boys and travelling is more limited, so I've combined everything I love: my background in anthropology, my passion for travel and my love of all things jewellery, to create statement pieces that I hope will give others that same great joy that I get from wearing my favourite items.

ECO FRIENDLY
I try to be as environmentally conscious as I can be, so wherever possible I use recycled silver products (where old silver pieces/ silver scraps are melted and reused) and you won't find any plastic wrapping!

CUSTOM ORDERS
I prefer to make one of a kind items, but there are exceptions. I’m definitely open to custom or repeat orders, so if you see something you like, but would rather it in a different colour/stone/size/shape, do get in touch and I'll see if I can help.

Let these pieces bring out the traveller in you.

Custom and personalised orders

If you like the style of the jewellery here, but are looking for a particular combination of gemstones or specific colour set, please do contact me and I would be very happy to collaborate with you zto create exactly what you are looking for.

Care instructions

Many of the items I make use rough cut gemstones. I love the rawness of their beauty and the sparkle without the bling factor. However, this does mean that they're a bit more fragile than industrially processed materials so you will need to look after them properly.

Where especially fragile stones are used, the jewellery will be posted in bubble wrap - I recommend keeping them in this when you're not wearing them.

Sterling silver will have a tendency to tarnish, especially if you've got perfume, suncream, mosquito repellent etc on at the same time. A quick rub with a silver polish cloth will have them looking as new again. Ideally store all sterling silver in an air tight container to avoid tarnish.

Packaging

All items come in a small jewellery bag to keep postage costs down. Remember, Perth is 'the most isolated city in the world' and this is definitely reflected in postage from here!

Your jewellery will be smartly wrapped within the gift bag and gift messages can easily be added.

Necklace Lengths

14" NECKLACE
Fits most like a choker

16" NECKLACE
Falls perfectly around the base of the neck like a collar. On a petite woman it will hit your collarbone while for plus size women it might feel more like a choker.

18" NECKLACE
This is our most popular length. It is a common choice for women that will fall just below the throat at the collarbone and any added pendants will hang over a crew neck.

20" NECKLACE
Will fall a few inches below the collarbone and allow a little more breathing room. Perfect for a low, plunging neckline or if you want to wear it over a turtleneck.

22" NECKLACE
Falls at or above a low neckline.

24" NECKLACE
Falls below any neckline.

36" NECKLACE
Can be worn long or doubled to create a layered 18" necklace.
