Originally from Caracas Venezuela, Gabriela Ortiz thoughtfully designs and fabricates jewelry from her Brooklyn, NYC based studio which she’s called home for the past 20 years. She plays with a diversity of metal smithing, wax carving and recycling techniques to create each piece by hand while also working with local manufactures in NYC on every collection.
Her passion is to make wearable art that is modern, everlasting and communicates love. Each piece should enhance strength and beauty with the intention to be worn everyday, for years to come. Each piece is handmade. She loves working with her hands and considers them her most precious gifts.
Gabriela Jewelry grows with the purpose of creating everyday elegance, Intricate pieces to be worn by the ones that believe in sophisticated aesthetics.
Every piece is carefully crafted by Gabriela to this end, using recycled metals and conflict free stones. She is constantly working towards the most sustainable and responsible practices in her work so her customers have no doubt when it comes to choosing a Gabriela Jewelry piece of art.
