Brazilian artist, Miriam Chor Freitas, the force behind Miriam Jewels, came to the United States bringing with her two generations of family tradition in the jewelry trade. Despite her artistic inclinations, she first pursued a meaningful career in child welfare; before talent and creativity took over and Miriam Jewels was born.
Miriam's eclectic jewelry collections represent the various aspects of her heritage. The vivaciousness of Brazil, the laid-back California style, the influence of artisan cultures and the classic style of fine jewelry; different aspects that blended together became Miriam Jewels.
"We are a unique jewelry studio specialized in handmade wire crochet jewelry. We combine several techniques of metal weaving with crystals, precious and semi-precious stones to create beautiful and unique pieces of wearable art that will complement the outer beauty of every woman and empower their inner beauty as well.
The highlight of our work is a flawless crochet technique that I learned in Peru. It creates perfectly symmetrical stitches that result in amazing eye-catching wire jewelry designs. There is olny a hand full of people who can do this work in the United States." - Miriam Chor Freitas
