I came across this attractive jewelry brand which makes fine jewelry for women. The jewelry is crafted by Iliana, a Columbian native who has worked for ten years in advertising agencies in Latin America.
Her lovely pieces are made with a blend of 925 Silver, 14K gold and semi-precious stone jewels and experimental materials like textiles and glass. The earrings are crafted with mini-colored beads, and each piece is inspired by the Embera Chami – the indigenous people of Columbia.
I love the filigree technique used to make their jewelry. Filigree is a form of metalwork that is practiced in the town of Mompox in Columbia. Filigree is the delicate manipulation of thin strips of metal that are woven and twisted to form incredible texture and detail.
They have lovely bead necklaces which make excellent chokers. All their jewelry can be cleaned with hand soap and a polishing cloth.
Iliana also designs lovely bags for women. The bags are woven by women of the Wayuu tribe using crochet techniques passed down for centuries and introduced by missionaries in the early 20th century. The bags are made with woven cotton with a shoulder strap and tasseled drawstring fastening, making it a great errand bag. They are available in a variety of bright colours.
