Her pieces harness inspiration from the realms of architecture, art and today's global cultural landscape. A delicate femininity collides with the jewelry’s graphic architecture, a decidedly modern take. Stark in their composition yet imbued with the warmth of the designer, resulting in an abstract aesthetic combined with more exuberant lines. Overall Soledad’s jewelry focuses on strong challenging shapes, creating pieces with contrast and close attention to details.
All pieces are designed in Miami and hand-finished in the heart of NYC.
