Jewelry inspired by the colors of the Rain Forest

Designs by Ileana Rojas-Bennett, this enchanting line of original handcrafted jewelry is inspired by the vast kaleidoscope of colors and textures found in the rain forests of Rojas-Bennett’s native country of Costa Rica.  The tropical rain forest is an enchanting paradise of colors that has influenced my ancestors for centuries.
