Spring Projects & Events

Oh beautiful and inspiring Spring! 

The intoxicating floral breezes are triggering my creative spirit
I am once again a busy bee

AMiRA jewelry can now be found in new stores here in Portland and beyond!

 NAKATE

AMiRA 
jewelry


I'm honored to be working with Shanley Knox, CEO and founder of NAKATE, a Brooklyn-based company that provides unique designs from Ugandan artisans to fashion conscious women. NAKATE uses the creation of their pieces as an opportunity to establish relationships connecting Ugandan professionals and artisans with marginalized women in rural villages – using African talent to nourish African growth and development.

We have teamed up to create an exclusive Mother's Day gift in a variety of colors using macrame techniques, metalwork, and handmade paper beads crafted by female artists in Uganda.  
I love the union of two cultures being expressed here, the Argentine traditions of macrame and the African recycled paper beads.  In fact, this project represents even more with AMiRA jewelry working out of Portland Oregon and NAKATE running operations out of Brooklyn New York, we have brought together coasts and countries to support women everywhere!!!
