Cha Cha Gallery spells love with diamonds.
Love bands: Fine art-focused Cha Cha Gallery debuts founder Charlotte Lena’s amorous haute joaillerie, including (FROM TOP) the rose-gold and diamond I Love You bracelet ($14,151) and the white-gold and diamond I Forever Belong To You bracelet ($18,259).
It’s appropriate that Charlotte Lena—who found, fell in love with, and moved to Aspen in 2013 after years of travel— would bring a multinational approach to Cha Cha Gallery, the art and design space she opened on the Hyman Avenue Mall in the closing days of 2015. Past exhibitions have included work from Spanish painter (and friend) Domingo Zapata, Saudi nouveau-Pop artist Rex Chouk, and Seattle-based stone sculptor Richard Rhodes. Now, the Corsica native brings a bit of Mother France to her multi-disciplinary space with a self-designed haute joaillerie collection, Promise ($12,000–$47,930). Studded with diamond hearts and messages of love, the white-, yellow-, and rose-gold pieces are produced in the eminent jewelry workshop of Edouard Nahum. From Paris with love. 426 E. Hyman Ave., 970-925- 1435; chachagallery.com
