Swarovski crystals are the medium of choice for jeweler Alejandra Awad, whose clean, white store called Vitraux—French for “stained glass”—pops with the light-filled color of her pieces. Formerly a painter and film stylist in Santiago, Awad uses small, diamond-shaped beads as well as larger drops and a few semi-precious stones, stringing them on gold and oxidized silver wire to sculpt earrings and necklaces; she favors woven rhombuses, concentric circles, hoops, lariats, and Indian-inspired chandelier forms, as well as bracelets with crystals stitched onto leather, lace, and mesh. The designs stand out with tight craftsmanship and vivid, seasonal color combinations like garnet with orange, blue with peridot, and turquoise with chocolate brown, plus classic black and white. Awad also creates pieces according to birthstone color and has a collection of white jewelry for brides. All the little sparklers are party-ready, and many hold the coquettish charm of gems that look like candy.
