Company: Momo / Atelier Jewelry
Location: Tijuana, BC, Mexico
Diana Contreras is the cool creative artist that owns Momo / Atelier Jewelry. Her jewelry is often big and bold, but still conveys an understated elegance. Working out of Tijuana, we are proud to introduce her pieces to Graffiti Beach as a local brand! I had so much fun learning more about Diana, and I hope you will too. Enjoy!
Diana Contreras: I've been making jewelry for two years, and started Momo / Atelier about a year ago.
DC: I used to paint and I’m also an industrial designer so I love building things with my hands and what’s better that making something that I can see people wear and look gorgeous in?
Be sure to visit us during the South Park Walkabout to see the Momo / Atelier Trunk Show!
DC: Walking down the street and seeing people I don’t know wearing my jewelry and looking like goddesses.
DC: I absolutely love that my statement pieces fit everywhere. You can be chilling with your friends having brunch in a summer dress, or rock them with a pair of jeans and a tee shirt, or wear them on a night out. I think that’s the beauty of the pieces: you can wear them wherever and whenever you want.
DC: I love that people are not afraid of big jewelry in Tijuana. I love the vibe of the city, with all the gorgeous architecture and the diversity that give life to the streets.
DC: I’m actually working with ceramics right now! I love to use all the materials I can and give them all unique shapes that will make customers feel special.
