I first met the Nicaraguan jewelry designer Karla Castillo back in 2012, when we were both just getting started with our projects. Ever since, we have worked together on many collaborations and has become one of Dream Life Factory’s best allies.

To understand Karla Castillo the brand, you have to get to know her creator. A full time dentist, designer, entrepreneur and mom. To this date, I still don’t know how she manages to juggle so many different hats at once, but it’s one of the things I admire the most of her. 

Each Karla Castillo collection is infused with a significant chapter of her life; the things and places she has visited and feels passionate about. All the pieces are handmade by Nicaraguan artisans, with sterling silver and semi-precious stones from Bali, Hawaii, Australia, England, Mexico and Nicaragua.

From timeless classics to colorful maximalist pieces, each collection has something for everyone. Why I enjoy the most about them is their versatility. You can wear the pieces to compliment both casual and formal looks and are great for day-to-night transitions.
