Coquito Designs not only has beautiful jewelry, but also has the sweetest story. Owner and designer Kristen Berge began Coquito with her mom years ago, and after her mom died suddenly in 2003, Kristen kept their business going…and makes jewelry in her honor {read more of her story here}. Heartwarming. I love the vintage beads and things she has in her Etsy shop too {like the red lucite hoops shown above…fab!}.
