Based in Lafayette, Louisiana, Tracy Newman Russo and Shonda LaBorde are the creative minds behind 2 Chicas! These fabulously funky ladies handcraft one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets. Pearls and semi-precious stones are their key ingredients which are always mixed in with the yin to their yang, leather!
One of the reasons The Scarab was so drawn to 2 Chicas jewelry was because of the perfect balance between sweet and soft pearls along with rough knotted leather. We also love the fact that many of their pieces can be worn different ways. From open wrap necklaces to adjustable bracelets and even unique clasps that can be positioned like a pendant, these girls are bursting with creativity!
The combinations are endless between baroque pearls, navajo pearls, turquoise, colorful stones, sterling beads and more. Another awesome feature of 2 Chicas jewelry is the fact that it pairs just perfectly with another favorite artist of ours, Richard Schmidt Jewelry.
Richard Schmidt is known for his amazing sterling silver creations with assorted semi-precious stones and embellishments. Many of Richard's pendants feature a large bale allowing for the pendant to fit on a number of necklaces including 2 Chicas chunky pearl and bead pieces.
