The insanely rich, earthy baubles that Colombian-born designer Paula Mendoza dreams up are just the kinds of things we love to covet — gorgeous, unique, handmade, and ultra-wearable. According to the designer, her great passion is discovering how accessories can change the way we experience fashion, and she strives to create pieces that can truly make an outfit. And, boy, does she ever succeed — take a quick scan through the site and we predict you'll be equally head-over-heels with the chunky raw-stone earrings, bold collar necklaces, and ornate gold and silver bracelets. Who doesn't need a solid statement piece to spice up the holiday-party circuit, after all?
To get us all in the holiday shopping spirit, Mendoza is discounting every last lust-worthy item in her online shop by 20 to 25% today through Monday, December 5 — which means our accessory obsession is now full-fledged.
