I’ve never been more grateful for those annoying Pinterest summer photos with perfectly tanned (and toned) women lying on endless sand beaches with the best pieces of accessories you’d never be able to pull of when sweating that much; because one of those led me to Coyote Negro, the Brooklyn based design project of Puerto Rican Art Director Melissa Hernández. She’s currently exploring jewelry as a sculptural wearable element and designing pieces that strive to surpass time and seasons without losing relevancy. She also collaborated with Los Tejedores, a project from Santo Domingo that links the tradition of weaving with natural materials with contemporary design, and created the perfect summer hat made of coconut leaf fiber (hand weaved in Haiti) and an adjustable strap made of natural tanned leather and white brass, handcrafted in NYC. God bless creative people and beautiful things.
