Colombian jewelry designer Paula Mendoza has made a name for herself with her signature serpent bracelet, with graduated gold beads coiling up the arm like a rattlesnake’s tail. Her background in sculpture is evident in her designs, where natural and geometric elements are worked into uniquely ergonomic shapes and forms. Her latest collection, rich with gemstones like raw emeralds and onyx, is in one word: sick.
