As we walked around enjoying taking in the beauty of the pieces, enjoying champagne and the tasty hors d’oeuvres, we were told of the concept of the collection. Inspired by the Mayan Temples, designer, and creator, Victor Sabido Basteris rediscovered the art of using natural materials to create color. “Sabido & Basteris combines fine jewelry design with cutting edge technology to dye silver using natural materials to create ribbons of rainbows. The line is distinguished by brilliant colors and silver thread that is weft in a completely unique way.”. The eco-friendly and sustainable line not only featured silver but also a mix of materials such as gold, leather, precious stones (as well as stones indigenous to various countries), wood and crystal creating the beauty that you see above. I expect to see the Sabido and Basteris pieces very soon on the red carpet.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to meet the designer as we had another event to attend (always another event) but on our way out we were gifted with a beautiful friendship bracelet like the ones featured below:
There was one piece that made me speechless but alas I didn’t take a photo and thankfully a quick search brought it up. I won’t call it a necklace, it is just a gorgeous piece of artwork
