¡Muy Bonita! Gorgeous Jewelry Inspired by MexicoMonique Frausto
If there’s anything you should know about me, it’s how proud I am of my Mexican heritage. I love everything about it! I especially like when others are influenced by the beauty that is Mexico, including the culture, landscape, and of course the people.
Mexico has already inspired the fashion world through and through. Remember the post I wrote about Mexican Textile Prints? That was fun! But right now, we’re going to talk Mexico-inspired jewelry. With Mexico’s Independence Day already here and Dia de Los Muertos around the corner, you’re bound to see it popping up here and there.
And if you’re a jewelry lover, you’re definitely going to love this roundup of Mexico-inspired jewelry. Take a look!
