Carolina Amado’s brand is sold locally, online and in boutiques in Spain and Peru. The talented young designer creates jewelry with an almost futuristic feel but they’re most certainly inspired by nature and art. It’s a calculated balance of opposing themes of the rigid and the organic, the natural and the computer made. It’s no wonder with her exotic educational background spanning I.T., fashion design and silversmithing. While her designs may be considered intellectual, they are also a lot of fun with a number of witty designs added from a gorgeous rose gold wish bone necklace named “Wish Me Luck” to “Reptile”, a sandblasted ring that is equal parts tough and glam.
Madhu Pallo brought Maaj, her luxurious resort wear line to Miami just months ago from Hong Kong. The collections of high quality and gorgeously detailed looks are perfect for the beach and include caftans and tunics with embroidery and hand beading. Maaj designs are comfortable and fashionable enough to be worn in any seaside locale from the islands of Greece to St. Tropez. It’s accessible luxury with exceptional handwork and a contemporary price point.

Blu Lua Jewels & Gifts

Miami Beach, FL 33139
Founded in 2011, Blu Lua began as a response to a personal tragedy for designer Diana Perez. Something positive was able to emerge from the darkness when it led her to an awakening of sorts realizing her artistry could be better used for handmade work rather than her work in graphic design. The designs are meant to bring good energy to their wearers such as feather pendant necklaces representing an expression of celestial wisdom as per Native American culture and mesmerizingly-beautiful, chakra-balancing Druzy stone drop earrings. The designs are just alluring such as a scarf in navy blue and white featuring anchor motifs that begs to be worn at sea. Showroom visits are available by appointment and the products are also offered online.
