Chicago jewelry designer Winifred Gundeck of the line Winifred Grace has chosen a beautiful Spanish word to connect to the simple, geometric designs of her just-launched 2013 collection.

Sueños, meaning ?dreams,? was the name chosen for the collection by Gundeck, who welcomed a baby boy this year. Craving simplification in her life, the designer has created streamlined bronze pieces (a few have leather accents, and all of the earrings have sterling-silver posts) to be worn every day, fuss-free.

Pared down and quietly chic--especially when compared with the ruffled leather necklaces in Gundeck?s last collection--the necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings are handmade by a team of women near Cuernavaca, Mexico, who have learned the craft in order to earn incomes for themselves for the first time.

The collection?s constellation rings and cuffs have quickly become popular among shoppers who request them personalized with their own birth signs; they make excellent gifts, thanks to Winifred Grace?s recent addition of engraving services.

With the holidays closing in, we?ll put Sueños on our list of ways to make a fashion-lover?s dreams come true.

Local boutiques p.45, Chalk and Sweet William stock Sueños by Winifred Grace, and Gundeck will show the pieces at Dose Market on November 11.
