Lalabeyou - Buy or Create your Own Jewelry!



I made a nice discovery while walking the other day through Belen Street, doing some window shopping. At first, I was amazed to see many drawings displayed with original jewelry. I was not sure whether it was a shop or a gallery. A smiley lady inside informed me it was both, and also a jewel atelier: Contemporary Jewelry Galery Lalabeyou!

Actually, the concept goes far beyond that. It is a contemporary jewel gallery and shop, which means that all the jewels have a modern concept based on designs and materials. Laura, the smiley lady and owner, has worked as an architect but realized the similarities between architecture and modern jewels, eventually setting up this original business. She opened it in 2012 under the name Lalabeyou (a game word with French bijou for jewel).


You can peruse all the different drawers, which will take some time as they have a huge variety of options, and most of their student work on display is for sale. These make very original presents as there are unique and small editions. Prices vary depending on the design and material, and you also have the opportunity to promote the craftsman’s work.


If you are a creative person with a taste for jewels and design, I encourage you to have a look at their workshops, either monographic or trimestral. You’ll end up working with wood, steel, wax, and enamel work, and making yourself beautiful with your own creations: isn’t that cool?

Paseándome por la calle Belén, acabé encontrándome con una vitrina que atrajo mi atención, muchos cajones abiertos de unos muebles maravillosos con un montón de joyas super originales dentro. Una chica encantadora me invitó a entrar y al preguntarle si era una tienda o exponían joyas, me dijo que efectivamente eran las dos cosas, pero que ¡Además era escuela de joyería!


Se trata de joyería contemporánea, por lo que todas las joyas tienen un aspecto muy moderno basado no solo en sus diseños sino también en los materiales que utilizan. Laura, la encantadora propietaria, abrió Lalabeyou en 2012 y antes trabajó como arquitecto, pero acabó dedicándose a la joyería contemporánea al darse cuenta que entre las dos disciplinas existían bastantes similitudes. El nombre del espacio, Lalabeyou, es un juego de palabras con el término en francés bijou.


En sus numerosos cajones, podrás encontrar joyas de diferentes estilos y presupuestos, super originales la verdad. Los autores pueden ser los alumnos del taller y creemos que es un regalo original, ya que son ediciones limitadas y muy sorprendentes. Los precios varían en función del diseño y material, pero son correctos y así se promociona el trabajo artesano.


Además, si eres una persona creativa, con buen gusto para las joyas y el diseño, te animamos a que mires los cursos que se imparten, monográficos o trimestrales. Puedes seleccionar el curso y acabar trabajando con madera, esmalte, cera y embellecerte a ti mismo con tu propio trabajo artesanal ¿se puede ser más cool?
