Desperate Housewives Jewelry Goes Brazilian

November 11 2005


If you were amongst the 16.8 million viewers that watched Sunday’s Desperate Housewives, then you caught a glimpse of the Bruna strawberry necklace, a hot seller for DC-based Bakana™ Brazilian Jewelry, Purses & Accessories. Susan Mayer (played by Terri Hatcher) accessorized her designer jacket with this colorful Bakana™ piece while she and friends confronted the dangerous Paul Young. During summer hiatus, stylists for Desperate Housewives searched for unique products to enhance the individual styles of their characters. They found this in Bakana™, a collection of unique jewelry, purses and accessories, each individually handcrafted by Brazilian women artisans. 

But the characters on the show aren’t the only ones sporting “Bakana™ style”. Eva Longoria has become a huge fan of Bakana™ and will soon receive a second shipment of Bakana™ merchandise.

Said owner Priscilla Stephan, “It is great to have a famous Latina role model enjoy wearing bakana™. Eva represents a very fashionable, fun-loving, hip woman who loves color and high quality products - which is what bakana™ is all about.

We look forward to cultivating a long lasting relationship with her.” Keep an eye out for other bakana™ appearances on Desperate Housewives in the weeks to come.

Well known for its distinct design and obsessive attention to detail, bakana™ Brazilian Jewelry, Purses & Accessories exemplifies true Brazilian craftsmanship. Each item represents anywhere from five hours to several days worth of handcrafted work by Brazil-based female artisans. Signature to bakana™ is an unconventional design technique using crocheted copper, gold-plate or silver wires interlaced with semi-precious stones to create extraordinary jewelry, purses and other accessories. Priscilla Stephan founded the company on the premise of bringing Brazil’s rich culture and individual designs to North America’s fashion-savvy women. bakana™ is Portuguese slang for “hip, fun and cool”, a testament to the woman who appreciates bakana™ style.
