Eccentric jewelry featuring fabulous stones is what the Mexican jeweler Daniela Villegas do best!

"I have always been inspired by nature, it's where I go to reconnect with the world, to be at peace, it makes me happy," says Daniela Villegas.

Today, Daniela weaves that fun-loving element into each of her fine jewellery creations, which include a glittering array of spikey porcupines, crab and insect motifs. At her LA studio, she sketches pieces of wood, feathers… pebbles. It is almost as if the contents of an old curiosity cabinet has been opened and scattered about her desk. Then there are her favourite curios of all, brightly coloured beetles, preserved over the years in glass display boxes. For her, they are like living jewels, or as she says: "In nature, every piece is one-of-a-kind".



Daniela Villegas' one-of-a-kind 'Volturnus' features 18 karats yellow gold beetle ring-shaped out of a tanzanite, embedded with a blue sapphire. Beetles represent regeneration, immortality and divine wisdom. A symbol of strength, protection and good luck.

A symbol of strength, protection and good luck.





Daniela Villegas' one-of-a-kind 'David Attenborough' necklace is named after this English broadcaster, writer, and naturalist noted for his innovative educational television programs, one of Daniela's heroes.
