Personally designed by the artist, each Ayala Bar jewelry collection conveys a unique signature. The imprint of creativity that draws on simple riches to transform them into objects of captivating beauty. Ayala Bar jewelry is handcrafted. Each piece is lovingly composed of non-precious metals combined with glass beads, mineral stones and crystal rhinestones.
Lullaby Collection Necklace
Adjustable length from 15" to 18". Steel chain. The decoration, when laying flat on my table measures 7" wide. Measurement from the center to the bottom is 2". But enough about the numbers - it is way easier to take a look at the way it falls on the model. She is a life size though limbless. The design plays host to a plethora of materials including crystals, fabric, yarn, beads. It is amazing.
Given the mixed media materials, which include fabric, contact with water or prolonged exposure to heat should be avoided in order to keep the pieces in mint condition. That means no swimming or visits to the tanning salon while wearing the jewelry.

I rescue turn of the century American pocket watch movements that are unused or disregarded due to disrepair, restore them, and re-case them as wrist watches to be enjoyed again in a way that modern style prefers. -Rob Lebel
Rob's product line is currently made up of the Diver, a tribute to the great divers watches of horological past, and the Pilot. The Pilot is a tribute to the early fighter pilot watches used in the first world war. Rob carefully restores and calibrates the pocket watch, leaving the back side under glass so the mechanism can be appreciated. Watch faces average 1.75" diameter. Handmade leather strap is over .75" but not quite 1" wide. This is the sort of accessory you will want to see in person. I'm estimating they will fit wrist sizes 8 to 10".
This is a 7 jewel Divers watch. I kept the thin plastic protective covering on the watch face which makes it appear like there's a ripple in the glass. There isn't.
Ships for $10 with insurance and tracking number. Will require signature on delivery unless you specifically rwquest otherwise. Does not ship internationally.
Entirely hand made in Christophe Poly’s shop located in Montréal. The essence of the work is essentially based on an architectural concept. The production process involves cutting and forming a multitude of small parts out of wires, plates and tubing. These parts are then assembled in a complex three dimensional construction. The jewelry has the particularity to be light to wear. Only top quality materials are used in the production of the jewelry, including brass, aluminum, acrylic, rubber and leather. The brass is generally soldered and plated in a variety of quality finishes. These finishes are extremely resistant and are among the best of the industry. In general the chains, bracelets, rings and certain other small parts are also made out of brass. The aluminum is generally used to create a contrast in our two tone color combinations. Our leather and rubber will not discolor on the skin. Our stones are made out of glass, which avoids all scratches and generally glued in place using specialized industrial glues.
The finishes include; 10k gold, antique silver, black and bronze. They all have a special coating that protects their surface. It is not recommended to wear the jewelry in water. No chemical products should be used to clean the surface. If in need simply use a wet or dry cloth to clean them. All of our earring posts and wires are hypoallergenic. We also eliminated all the lead content in our solder. No special attention is necessary to preserve the beauty of the jewelry. Simply use a a wet or dry cloth to clean the surface when necessary.
These earrings measure 1.75" long from the center of the earwire curve. The design area is 1.5" long and .1" wide. Bottom glass is black or a really dark grey.
