Jeweler Candy Dizon is as bright as summer. She brims with vivacity and her bubbly personality always shows in her fun, playful designs. For her latest collection for Jul B. Dizon Jewellery, she has come up with a whimsical lineup of cheerful jewelry pieces in summer motifs arrayed in the most colorful of gems and the most fanciful of designs.
Her goal was "to create a special collection for summer" with "easy yet statement pieces that are fun, conversational, and chic." "I have always liked to design something fun and colorful," she says. "Our clients have already tagged me as the 'Whimsical Designer.' I love putting the joyful reality of life into jewelry. You will see that in my bangle of a couple sunbathing surrounded by coconut trees."
"This is not the first time I have done something like this," she says further about the merry collection. "Since all the pieces are handmade and one of a kind, when one piece sells, it takes months for us to create another one so the demand is very high, but supply usually comes after much wait. The difference is that our workers are getting more skilled by the day; therefore, the design and creation is more intricate, more detailed."
But despite the cheer and whimsy of her newest jeweled "babies," Candy would like to think that they can be worn day in and day out, regardless of season. "Even if it is dubbed as the summer collection, I think these pieces are timeless. If you wear them abroad, see how many compliments you will get from foreigners! It’s a very nice feeling."
