Bea Valdes is an accessories designer based in the Phillipines and creates some of the most beautifully embellished necklaces and bags I’ve laid eyes on. Her pieces are definitely for the maximalist, and each is made by artisans in Manila where Valdes is based and where she grew up, coming from a family that has been in the fine jewelry trade business for three generations.   It’s a time-intensive process to make each accessory and it definitely shows in the details of the craftsmanship, from the placement of the embroideries and beadwork to the unique shapes.  Feathers, glass drops, faceted crystals, and stones are sourced from around the globe and are combined to make some of the accessories below.  For more info about Bea Valdes visit Couture Lab.
