Tired of being hurt by pricks?

Let Lorena Barriento handle the needlework.

The local crafter and creator of Marañón jewelry painstakingly embroiders necklaces, earrings, and brooches.

Part grandma, part Picasso, the nifty collection combines a splash of modernism with an otherwise traditional hobby. The spinstress uses embroidery floss to weave eye-catching geometric patterns into vibrant Cubist shapes.

Each piece is available in a variety of colors, sizes, and patterns and is entirely customizable, if you have something specific in mind. Barriento also lines the backs with a layer of lace for a touch of comfort and femininity.

Needles to say, the collection is super sharp.
