Mercedes Salazar has multiple lines and collections of designs. The female Latino owned company has Le Bateleur, The Magician, card No. 1 of the Tarot, has inspired me to create that magician I would like to become: a being who treasures free-will. One whose thoughts, words, and actions, makes dreams part of daily life.
This collection is the result of a personal journey to face each dawn with choosing life, balance, and imagination. It is also her way to give back to disadvantaged, female owned businesses. With gratitude, I continue this quest within my universe to find the inexhaustible elements with which I can make magic.
My magician wraps around ponchos made from sheep’s wool and dyed with the colors of red berries and turmeric.
Colombia is a collection that pays tribute to the ancestral techniques with which the hands of teachers transform materials. It is a tribute to the palm, the fiber, the materials that grow in the jungle and by the sea. To the colors of the earth. Between stitches and stitches we remember who we are and what unites us.
If you didn’t already know of her, get ready to be o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with the female Latino designer of some of the most amazing, colorful jewelry and accessories ever. Can you handle all these colorful beaded necklaces?
