Miriam Bruten

"The quality is indisputable; if you acquire one of my jewels you will have it for a lifetime."

“I am Miriam Bruten from San José, Costa Rica, where I was born in 1948. I enjoy reading, theater, cinema, music and the... sea. I grew up as a happy girl with loving and hardworking parents. From them I learned to be responsible in what I am committed to. They are merchants, so they supported me from my beginning in jewelry.

“I always liked crafts, so I took several courses. My husband is a glass artist, and thanks to him, I started making jewelry 23 years ago. I accompanied him to a fair and got bored after 15 minutes, so I went to where they sold jewelry materials. From that moment, I took different courses and found my true passion. The first jewelry I made I used for my son's wedding, and it is one of the pieces that people like the most. I have always liked jewels, but they are really very expensive and not everyone can have access to them. I thought that I would like to have it be elegant, conservative and accessible, and that I would like to use it for different occasions. I love all my creations; if I am not totally satisfied, I will not produce it.

“I learned the techniques in jewelry workshops outside of Costa Rica. Now I am teaching a person who has a lot of creativity and enthusiasm. To learn I have had to work a lot, play with the materials and put them in different shapes until the model that I like comes out and I am really satisfied. I use 925 silver, gold-filled silver, pearls of different shapes and colors, and semi-precious stones. All are natural; for example use black and green onyx, malachite, turquoise, lapis lazuli, agate, chalcedony, and crystal. I have to bring the raw materials from abroad; unfortunately in Costa Rica they are not available.

“The best part is definitely creating new models. The challenge is whether people will like it. I have been very lucky; my pieces have been well-accepted in general. My inspiration comes from the need to make a piece of jewelry that many people can wear. When I go to buy the materials, right there I already get the inspiration to create something new. My art represents a tradition in my country and everywhere. If a person can have a pearl necklace, I help them to have it without paying exorbitant amounts. Parts can be reused.

“It has been a lot of fun establishing myself as an artisan and working alone. At first I had the help of my family, who would give me their opinion on the products. My dreams and plans for the future are that my brand transcends borders and that we continue to grow every day.

“My jewelry is international. My style is classic, though there are more conservative people everywhere. The quality is indisputable; if you acquire one of my jewels you will have it for a lifetime. The work we do is done with the full conviction that the jewelry you are going to wear will make you feel even more beautiful and distinguished. Thank you very much!”

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
