We are a small company based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with a strong emphasis on design, specializing in contemporary jewelry and accessories. We design necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings with a contemporary flair.
Gabriela and Karina Iskin have been playing together since childhood. In 2004, the Buenos Aires-based sisters launched their first collection of playful creations. Gabriela’s industrial design background and Karina’s business background made the half-Brazilian sisters a perfect team. They take inspiration from architecture, modern and contemporary art, natural landscapes, and the sense of wonder and excitement they both keep from childhood.
The unique pieces made of unconventional jewelry materials, such as leather, suede, and acrylic, and are designed with the modern woman in mind. She wants it all— simplicity and a bold statement, inspiration from faraway travels and the pleasure of community and family, head-turning attention and a sense of personal space and taste — all the while craving comfortable, wearable, and lightweight fashion that can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion.
Our production company is located in Buenos Aires and we hand make our jewelry, adhering to the highest quality standards. All Iskin Sisters products are hand finished.
