Crazy for Cristina V’s Jewelry

Friday, March 11, 2011

The AVENUEinsider is ready for spring and bright colors so to prepare for sunny days ahead we are piling on Cristina V‘s bracelets. A bold burst of electric colors (we especially adore orange) Cristina used feather charms throughout this season.

“Growing up, our father always stressed the importance of ‘roots and wings.’ He taught us that with strong roots (of honestly and perseverance) and eager wings (powered by confidence in oneself) anything could be accomplished,” Cristina tells us. “We all used to tease him about this saying when we were younger, but as I work hard and grow my business, I can’t help but think he was right. Thus, when I decided what charms I wanted to have sent over from Bali, the feathers immediately appealed to me.”

We love the vibrant colors and want to wear a rainbow of bracelets up to our elbows. “I am thrilled that orange is finally in,” Cristina raves. “I love orange and my entire business is built around mango – my bags, my pouches, tee shirts. My entire Spring/Summer Collection is based around orange, yellow and honeysuckle pink. We also made these in turquoise just because it just went too well.” We couldn’t agree more.

Cristina V is available at Bloomingdales and at
