international bling.

Some of my favorite pieces of jewelry are those that I collect on trips through Latin America and the Caribbean. In particular, I have a fascination with these bracelets that I found in Buenos Aires that are painted like Russian nesting dolls.

Now the smaller bracelet I bought from JewelMint, but I love the juxtaposition in the bigger bracelet of something both Russian and Latin. In a lot of ways, it captures what I love about Latin America and the art - the influence of more than one culture and the mestizaje which shows up in the art that I study. That, and this bracelet is just really pretty.
