Arajera is a Filipino silver jewelry shop founded by Ara Villafuerte-Mondez. We were the first in the country to design a full range of original and locally-made ear climbers. At a time when only so few people knew what they were, and were not at all a trend yet, Ara introduced the style at bazaars and online.
After looking for ear climbers in the country for a long time and never finding them, she finally thought, why not make them herself? After a long research process and an incredulous amount of self-doubt, she launched an online store in 2012.
We have since dipped our feet in designing necklaces, traditional earring studs, and are continuously looking for inspiration for new stuff.
All our materials are sourced and proudly made locally by a small team of magical jewel-makers.
At present, we do not have a physical store aside from the occasional bazaars we join.
