‘Virgensita no me lleves,’ which in Spanish translates Little Virgin Mary don’t take me with you, is the intriguing and fun name Spanish jewelry designer Rebecca Beltran gave to her Mexican-inspired jewelry collection. These bracelets are simply adorable and a must-have because of their excellent quality and charming style.
Handcrafted and made of silver, crystals and semi-precious stones like coral, turquoise and amazonite, these accessories fuse punk with Mexican folklore. Beltran is not only passionate about these two influences, but she also makes sure that each “virgensita,” as she calls her bracelets, is one of a kind, as she tries to avoid repetition or mass production. The best part about this tequila-flavored line is the smiley skulls. They come in a variety of colors, and they’re the reason why Beltran decided to start her company last year, while spending some time in her native Ibiza, Spain.
Every bracelet is accompanied by a little message or cute saying related to Mexico and the ironies of life, making this fascinating jewelry collection by Rebecca Beltran a celebration of Frida Kahlo and tequila, as its slogan reads.
