Design Centers curates a stunning collection of handmade jewelry, chic accessories, and eye-catching apparel in styles from around the world. Amid the art-flecked walls and oriental-carpet-covered floors of the welcoming studio, flowing turquoise silk shawls ($195) beckon to guests with their reversible designs, and cognac grainy parisian handbags ($128) exude the sophisticated smells of new leather and aged camembert. Handsome Andre Francois watches ($35) tell time with understated beauty, and silk purses with handles ($35) enclose valuables between soft, smooth sheets of elegant fabric. In addition to equipping customers with swank accessories, Design Centers decorates guests in high-end and handmade jewelry, such as pearl flower necklaces($255) made from glittering 14K gold, or modern, streamlined art-deco coral rings ($1,540), which were designed by a Santa Fe artist to summon the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright whenever their wearers receive high-fives.
The owners of Design Centers share their passion for artisan jewelry and accessories, assembling an international selection of pieces handcrafted from materials such as precious metals, gemstones, and fine fibers. They also support craftsmen through working with fair-trade merchants and donating a portion of their proceeds toward select nonprofit programs.
