vanessa montiel

born in mexico and trained as an artist in california and london, vanessa travels the world in pursuit of brilliant colors and perfect surf. her jewelry is hand crafted, inspired by natures botanical mysteries and revels in elegance and grace. her signature material is water buffolo horn from Sumatra (buffello takes the place of beef round these parts, so rest assured the horn is a well utilised bi-product), which she carves into exquisit shapes and patterns.
