Buenas tardes!

Today we walk along the golden shores of Loquillo Beach in Puerto Rico. The collective scenery of wispy, white clouds, blue sky, and the sway of the impossibly deep green palm tree leaves is breathtaking.

Puerto Rico is also the home of featured jewelry designer Vanessa Quijano.

Quijano received an Associate’s Degree of Science in Photography eight years ago from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in Florida.

Similar to Liz Goldwyn's (USA) early career choice, Quijano primarily works with photographers by retouching and correcting color in innumerable images for beauty, jewelry, editorial, celebrity, and fashion photography.

A seasoned photographer, Quijano is often the person who takes credit for the skilled photography featured in magazine advertisements, billboards, celebrity press, and fashion and beauty publications.

With this kind of expertise there is no question that as a jewelry designer Quijano is someone who knows what looks good and she knows how to accentuate a woman's beauty with colorful, elegant pieces that also possess intrinsic sensuality.

Quijano's eye for beauty easily translates into her lovely designer jewelry that prominently features Crystallized Swarovski Elements mixing elegant outlines with Latin flair.

Her necklaces are infused with a fun, flirty and provocative edge. I particularly like her brass bracelet with connecting sterling silver ring; a unique, sure-fire way to add a touch of sex appeal to a stylish outfit.

Quijano uses tarnish-resistant rhodium plating over brass to build her fashion jewelry designs.

From what I understand rhodium is highly resistant to the atmospheric damage, and is a silvery-white metal belonging to the platinum group.
