The richness of the Renaissance is captured in our Pitti bib necklace made exclusively for BuDhaGirl by Karina Marcela Atelier. Inspired by the rich hues and textures found in the amazing works of art in the Medici’s Pitti palace in Florence, Karina combined crystals, cording and fringe to celebrate a time when adornment was highly coveted. The Pitti bib is mounted on a light metal torque and comes in BuDhaGirl pink or Medici black, it features an off-center flower made with crystals and crochet. Handcrafted in Italy.
Santa Maria Novella in Florence, is one of Jessica’s favorite places, not only because of the amazing church and cloister, but because of the divine pharmacy with all natural products. http://www.smnovella.com/?lang=en Our SMN bib necklace is named for this magnificent structure.
Our SMN bib is “the” bib to own. Black passamenterie cord is woven over vintage kimono rope, then finished with a huge cut crystal chain in either ice blue or champagne. The pull closing allows you to position the SMN bib perfectly to finish any neckline, from a classic tee to a sumptuous evening gown.
The SMN bib is handcrafted in Empoli, Italy by Atelier Karina Marcela exclusively for BuDhaGirl.
Oltrarno refers to a Florentine neighborhood on “the other side of the Arno”, the river bisecting Florence. It is now a hot spot of activity, and the “it” place; you can say it is the Left Bank of Florence.
Our Oltrarno bib is a true chameleon because it changes depending on what you decide to wear. Great with a simple black tee, under a crisp white shirt, or a light summer dress. For evening and more formal occasions it completely changes its attitude…becoming a statement piece that finishes that ever-so-chic little black dress, over a turtleneck and black satin or grey flannel pants for American classic style at it best. Available in black or BuDhaGirl pink. Handcrafted in Emploi, Italy exclusively for BuDhaGirl.
Simply delightful and extraordinarily chic, our Fiori leather bib finishes any neckline with Florentine flare.
Hand cut leather petals form camellias, primroses and daisies that are then held together with Swarovski crystals. Our Fiori bib easily snaps on and off and is made of 100% natural “nappa: Italian leather. Available in black leather with cognac crystals or BuDhaGirl pink with red crystals. Handcrafted exclusively for BuDhaGirl in Empoli, Italy.
Cameos are amongst the most classic embellishments in the realm of jewelry. BuDhaGirl presents Cameos “a la moderne”, in either antique blue or classic black. These Cameo pendant necklaces feature a hand-wrapped silk cone pendant with cognac and smoke collared crystals that encircle the rose colored cameo crafted in the ancient city of Sienna. Our Cameo pendant hangs from a luxurious silk cord.
Handcrafted in Empoli, Italy exclusively for BuDhaGirl. Measures 35” long.
Catherine de Medici would have swooned (or maybe done a little bit more) for our beautiful Medallion pendant necklace. In either violet or black the necklace is a fabulous composition of many different textures and colors. Starting with a beaded back the necklace transitions to a silk cord, which then holds a round medallion of Swarovski crystals backed in Italian “nappa” leather. BuDhaGirls love tassels and our Medallion pendant is finished with a lavish handmade tassel.
The Medallion pendant is handcrafted in Empoli, Italy exclusively for BuDhaGirl by Atelier Karina Marcela Bijoux. Measures 38” long.
Named after Josephine Baker’s “La Conga Blicoti” this BuDhaGirl necklace is the ultimate in retro-chic. A South Sea grey pearl pendant hangs from a delicate jet crystal hand-knotted rope and finished with a black silk tassel. The grey pearl pendant has an opening loop, so it may be used on other necklaces. The Blicoti pearl drop necklace truly can be worn with the simplest of tees and it can be the ultimate “cha-cha” accessory for that perfect black dress.
The Blicoti pearl drop necklace is part of BuDhaGirl RED. Hand finished in the US by really nice people with very small hands.
Rows and rows of jet crystal are crocheted to form a substantial chain of pure glamour. Finished with black resin Buddha head beads, clear crystal and black rondelles our Yuan Jet necklace is truly a piece of art. Incredible for daytime with all black…turtle neck and leather pants; or for evening on red cashmere or satin. We believe that the back should be as important as the front, so our Caravan Collection necklaces are a continuous strand of beads that make your nape more beautiful.
Handcrafted in the US with Czech crystals. Measures: 30” long.
