Discovering Aroluna


 Irene, of Aroluna was born and raised in Argentina but now resides with her family in sunny Florida. She takes a very sensual approach to jewelry making and in fact describes her passion in those terms, "I love asymmetry, circular forms and making pieces that are sensual and bold, almost with life of their own, you can feel their subtle weight, their sound, their touch."

         Ra Necklace, Irene's signature link



"I am attracted by circular lines and asymmetry; my pieces are rustic and organic, sturdy but smooth. Often times they are bold, but I always want them to be perfectly comfortable, able to become part of the person if she or he wants to wear them at any times, and defy the passing of time." -Irene


some of Irene's lovely earring designs

Irene's work looks deceptively simple, but this type of metal work actually requires lots of practice to get really good at it, and irene is really good at it! Plus, her unique designs are fresh and totally timeless, and many can be worn by men as well as women.
