After graduating from fashion school, and honing her skills through internships at Rodarte and Nike, Aimee Santos landed her dream job and is now a working fashion designer in Los Angeles. Constantly DIY'ing in her spare time, she created Swellmayde as a home for her readers to embrace their creativity. It's all about finding inspiration and teaching others how to bring it to reality with easy to follow steps. We're all about making things easy, so for a limited time, you can purchase a Swellmayde DIY Kit exclusively on BRIKA.
We were so lucky to have the talented Aimee Santos of Swellmayde host a DIY workshop at our BRIKA lunch in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago (more on that soon!). Our guests enjoyed making these rhinestone rope bracelets so much that we thought we'd make it easy for everyone to get crafty and create beautiful accessories for summer — and since the kit comes with enough materials for two bracelets, we can make one for ourself and one for our BFF.
