The owner of Mariposa Designs, Sergio Baril, is not your typical shop owner. As a protégé of the renowned French jewelry designer Fred Samuel, his expertise is unparalleled. With over 30 years in the jewelry business, this is truly a man who knows his trade.
The store is more reminiscent of a museum than your typical jewelry store. The variety here is astounding with crystal lariats from Columbia, coral adornments from Guadalajara, and flower brocades from the Baltic Sea.
Mariposa Designs is located in the shopping district of Palm Avenue, in beautiful downtown Sarasota Florida. Click here for directions.
Equally refreshing is his attitude towards the pieces in his shop. "My dream is to be able to capture the imagination of the Sarasota people and offer them things that you wear with a smile, something that's not just an accessory, it's fun, it has some attitude."
