Basilio Badillo #276
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
Cassandra Shaw Jewelry
The majority of the jewelry is designed by Cassandra Shaw herself, and are one of a kind pieces. A form of art in its own right, each piece is stunningly crafted by her silver smiths here in Mexico. Very contemporary, very bold and dramatic, using natural stones, carved antique treasures and sterling silver to create a look as individual as its wearer.
Not limited to jewelry she also has a beautiful collection of hand sewn Tunics and flowing blouses designed by a local designer, Antonio Gradilla that are exclusive to Cassandra's store.
Upstairs is a gallery with paintings by Cassandra, who has been a painter for over 20 years. She started while living in Vancouver, and moved to Puerto Vallarta in 1999 to start a career in jewelry design and art. The paintings are heavily layered, with focus on color and contrast in each canvas.
If you're shopping for affordable, completely unique pieces, her gallery and jewelry store is located in Old Town directly on Basilio Badillo.
