Firefly jewelry is designed by Juan Carlos Chavajay Vasquez, in conjunction with Edward Rudnicki. The intricately embellished mosaics are inset with a combination of Swarovski crystals and various other materials. Swarovski Elements precision cut crystal comes in such a wide palette of innovative colors that it inspires our imagination. The findings used in the jewelry are brass that has been silver plated and then antiqued.
