Wilfredo Rosado’s exceptional jewelry is only available at a few select locations in the world. None carry quite the array of his work that can be found at the concept store Just One Eye in Los Angeles. Situated off the beaten path in the factory area of West Hollywood, extraordinary clothes and accessories, avant guarde art and covetable antiques are cooly curated within the 5,000-square foot art deco building that was the headquarters of business tycoon Howard Hughes during the 1930s.
Wilfredo’s jewelry has its own 412-square foot room at Just One Eye decorated with a modern mix of old, new and custom decor. On the wall is a friendly giant painted by Haruki Murakami. A Giacometti style chandelier hangs from the ceiling. The seating suite dates from the 1940s. A mid-century Alvar Aalto desk is accented by a contemporary Christopher Kreiling lamp and small wire chairs by Billy Haines. Christopher Kreiling also designed all the custom made bronze cases and wall vitrines for the jewels.
The eclectic items in the decor not only work together seamlessly, they are also truly a reflection of the edge and elegance that defines Wilfredo’s work. His collection includes elaborate diamond bibs made of segments inspired by mechanical parts. Earrings are painted with gems to look like Mondrian paintings. Sexy cameos flirt from rings and pendant necklaces. Colorful leather accents flower brooches. Feathers fly off dazzling diamond earrings. The combination of sensational things make it well worth the pilgrimage to the boutique.
