The work of artist Eduardo Garza involves natural-world inspired materials and masterfully crafted luxe designs.  His pieces capture the mystical and magical properties of semiprecious minerals and stones that are often paired with brass, resin and lucite. He follows up his initial collection with West Elm with additional pieces that have just launched. Gem facets, crystals and cabinet of curiosity-style can be had, all without breaking the bank.

With faceted detailing that shines like a gigantic diamond made of mirror, he has designed a Vanity Mirror on a mod swiveling brass base. It can be your Diamond as Big as The Ritz a la F. Scott Fitzgerald.

For some reason, good looking boxes are everywhere. In my opinion, you can never have too many, that is why I think this lidded box with a resin crystal formation surrounded by brass is a necessary addition. This piece most resembles his luxurious designs, which can be found at Bergdorf Goodman. Your earrings will thank you. But then again, your coffee table might too.

Shards of resin resemble a large crystal formation in this ring holder with a white marble base. Given that this piece looks sculptural, I think it could make a nice addition on a tablescape, rather than hold jewelry.
