Janina Dizon Hoschka's jewelry is characteristically imbued with whimsy. Brightly colored, playful and exuberant, her pieces for Janina for Jul Dizon add a quirky finish to any ensemble, making it even more vibrant and eye-catching.
This young mom with an impressive pedigree (she hails from a family of famed jewelers—her grandmother, Paz Bañas, catered to old Manila's clientele, and her late mother, Jul B. Dizon, is renowned both locally and abroad) knows how to breathe life into the intricate art of jewelry making.
She constantly reminds herself that jewelry, and the craft of creating it, should always be a joy. But needless to say, she still takes her job very seriously. She tempers her fanciful take on her jeweled creations with an abundance of professional craftsmanship. She thus produces one of a kind pieces that are sure to impart the same sense of delight to its wearer as she has had in making the beautiful items.
She has just released her summer 2010 collection of bewitching rings, necklaces, bangles, and earrings, some of which are inspired heavily by animals and kids, while some stay true to her usual take on classic forms with an innovative twist. The pieces from her latest collection shine with unmistakable liveliness and pretty delicateness that are perfect for summer's vibrancy.
Her earrings, by the way, are set apart from her other pieces because of their customizable uniqueness. Called Transformers, each earring comes with several components that can be collected separately, and mixed and matched to create remarkable pairs that can suit any occasion and caprice. (We went crazy over these!)
