    UPDATE: With the beachy weather all around us this week and weekend, we're thinking about Dezso's chic ocean-inspired jewelry. Check out the designer's pad and see why we're still obsessing. This article was originally published February 3, 2012.

    When you hear "beachy chic," your mind probably drifts westward to some Pacific bungalow where sun-kissed girls hang ten and sip drinks out of coconuts. But that's only because you've never met local jewelry designer Sara Beltran, the creative genius behind Dezso (or "desire" in Latin). Desire indeed. The line (an instant obsession of glossy editors and Barneys' buyers) consists of simple, well-made bracelets, necklaces, and earrings that channel her love of the ocean, her Mexican upbringing, and Jaipur, India, where she just opened up a design studio. In a time when jewelry can feel limited to large impact pieces, Beltran's spare collection stands out, an aesthetic that translates to her home life as well. We visited her Chelsea casa and discovered a total oasis of calm away from the overzealous galleristas below — rustic and earthy, clean and subtly sophisticated, this crib is one chic getaway. Of course, we didn't leave without some snaps of Beltran's personal style, too. You can bet her ensembles are as cleverly understated as her line, even though she rocks a Birkin on the reg. We just hope it doesn't get sandy.

    Check out Sara's laid-back Chelsea crib and read up on her designs before she shows at NYFW for the first time!
