Mara Carrizo Scalise Design

Minimalist trinkets that won't empty your wallet

We’re on the road to impeccable style (think Kerouac in Miu Miu slingbacks).

Riding shotgun: Argentina-born, Laurel Canyon-based jewelry designer Mara Carrizo Scalise, whose minimalist line, Mara Carrizo Scalise Design, gets our motor running.

Leather wraparound bracelets and polished silver cuffs effortlessly switch lanes from office to date night. Amulets (horn, moon, hamsah) affixed to delicate chains and wax cords hit the brakes on bad luck. Gold earrings (mini star studs) and rings (brass signets) put the pedal to the (precious) metal.

For those in the market for buttery-soft, stitched leather goods, a collection of handbags, wallets, and belts gets the green light.

Check out Scalise’s blog for candids of her pieces modeled by her Victoria’s Secret pals.

Dangerous curves ahead.
