A hereditary designer and jeweler, Larisa Barrera works in the company of her famous parents Jose and Maria Barrera. A fashion design graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, she worked at Badgley Mischka for three years as a design assistant before returning to the family business in 1996. Designing jewelry for the Barrera brand, Larisa created her own brand of unique jewelry. In addition, she designed sophisticated collectible evening bags with precious stones and bead-embroidered clothes.
Inspired by the jewelry traditions and forms of the past centuries, especially Baroque and Classicism, Larisa made intricate jewelry, slightly modified in a modern way. Traditionally, the designer used antique gold and silver metal, enamel and inlays, volumetric engravings and the classic manual technique of setting pavé stones. A small team of craftsmen led by Larisa hand crafted exquisite costume jewelry decorated with clear and colored crystals, Chandelier-shaped clips and teardrop pendants. The production process also used semi-precious stones and various precious metals, glass, crystal crystals and Swarovski rhinestones.
Noteworthy, her high price segment and premium jewelry appeared on the red carpets and on the pages of fashion magazines. Hollywood stars and celebrities used to shine in her jewelry. In particular, Madonna, Britney Spears, Cher, Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Julian Moore, Salma Hayek and many more.
