Over 10 Years of Experience creating unique, meaningful handmade jewelry, using gold, sterling silver & hand-picked natural gemstones. All of our unique jewelry is made with careful detail by the Argentinean Artist Federico Merlo. Federico Merlo, Creator and Designer of Sneaky Bird
Federico’s passion and inspiration for high-end jewelry design comes from his family’s rich history of artistry. Starting from his family’s roots in Genoa, Italy, he continues the tradition that his grandfather started. Now operating in New York, Federico integrates his family history with his classical education in art.
Growing up seeing his father working in his jewelry studio inspired Federico to begin studying the craft. He graduated from a top art institute in Buenos Aires, earning his Goldsmith certificate. In the last 15 years he has been creating signature pieces ranging from custom-designed statement pieces, to wearable art for everyday life.
Sneaky Bird was created two years ago, when Federico relocated from Buenos Aires to New York. Since then it has become an international operation with clients all around the world. Our mission is to create life-long quality pieces that reflect the individualism of each client. Proudly handcrafted in Miami / New York, our pieces are made from sterling silver, gold, and natural stones.
