A premier destination for skydiving, hang gliding and skiing is Interlaken in Switzerland. With its expansive agricultural areas and mountains the commune is ideal for outdoor sports. Switzerland is also home to featured jewelry designer Isler.
There is an occasion for every style of jewelry; there are every day jewelry pieces that can easily go from day-to-night and there are even pieces suited for a casual outing at the park.
Isler (as she is known on her profile at Bottica.com) explores both styles in handmade jewelry designs that are clean, simple and pretty.
Inspired by the 70s boho-chic style, her two lines Bijoux Bar and Be Charmed Designs, are characterized by lovely wrap and friendship bracelets fashioned from Irish linen cords and 100% sheer silk.
The rich colors of the fabrics along with accents of silver feathers, faceted gold beads, engraved silver discs, and hamsa hands provide a Mediterranean vibe.
The various hues of deep wine to strawberries and cream or mint and cream are great color options to subtly spruce up a t-shirt and pair of jeans. Her bracelets can be layered with others and some double as necklaces.
Isler also knows how to turn up the razzle-dazzle with beautiful gemstone necklaces, gemstone earrings and gemstone pendants that highlight gorgeous 14-karat gold wire wrap along with such semi-precious gemstones as green amethyst, freshwater pearls, smoky quartz, and raw druzy diamonds.
“I have two passions—the first being gemstones and the combination of colors. The other is linen and simpler jewelry. I flip back and forth. I adore both and somehow cannot choose. I think my designs are the perfect finishing touch to a bohemian, free-spirited style.”
