Inspired by the haunting beauty of the desert, Sonámbulo jewelry celebrates nature's rough edges, compelling textures, and irregular shapes. Each piece embodies the quiet strength of desert dwellers. Shifting sands, dried branches, foreboding cacti - these are among the images that inspire our work.
Sonámbulo designer and New Mexico native, Joanna Manganaro, spent eight years working as a fashion stylist and trend forecaster in New York before returning to her beloved home state to design jewelry. Her love of accessories can be blamed in part on having had a fancy grandmother, who taught her about the beauty of metals and stones at an early age. Joanna is thrilled to have the opportunity to create unique pieces made from soulful materials. She hopes that her jewelry will bring its wearers a sense of quiet confidence and the strength and vastness of the desert.
