Juan Carlos Obando

Spring/Summer 2012 | Spring/Summer 2014

A couturier of the old school and one of the few who can claim that every aspect of a creation is his own, Juan Carlos Obando infuses his jewelry collections for Atelier Swarovski with his innate attention to detail. The smooth links and colorful Swarovski crystals set in ceramic form a contemporary and easy to wear, yet glamorous collection.

“A hedonistic amalgamation of lavish indulgence with effortless sophistication."

— Juan Carlos Obando

Inspired by the links used in climbing equipment, tiny Swarovski crystals are embedded in ceramic using the Pointiage technique. The designs for the original Spring/Summer 2012 collection are enhanced by the use of fluorescent colors such as green, fuchsia and shining yellow. His 2014 collection saw Obando rework key pieces in different colors including metallic blue crystal as well as adding new styles such as the choker.

Obando began his career in advertising but has since become one of the most respected and most beloved of America’s couturiers. He is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America and has won praise from fashion editors, stylists and couture lovers alike.
