One thing that I wanted to do in Paraguay was to create my Silver Filigree and Larimar Collection that I have previously designed.
We I arrived I had no idea who to hire to help me with my project, but that was one of my priorities in this trip and I’m glad I started early since my trip has been cut short at least I will be taking home a great jewelry collection.
To finally have these pieces of art come true in the material world I started to design them at the end of last year and was working on improving my designs during the first semester of this year.
The hard part was to buy the Larimar stones, these stones only exists in 1 square kilometer in the Dominican Republic and besides its beauty it has many spiritual and physical properties, it is a rare and hard to find stone…I was lucky and found a person who sent them to me with a very ordinary setting.
I brought the stones with me and a friend recommended me a jeweler from Luque, I showed him my notebook and we started our project my first week in Paraguay.
Most of my models are made of Silver Filigree and old technique that consists in very thin Sterling silver threads twisted together making wonderful pieces of art, this is the first time ever that Larimar and Filigree are combined in this way and I’m absolutely glad about the results.
I hope I can keep enlarging my jewelry collection because this pieces are exclusive and I’m very happy with this personal project and hope It will also be liked by my clients.
One filigree piece can involve 36 hours of handwork. All my pieces are handmade by very fine and skilled artisans.
I hope you like my pieces as much as I enjoyed creating them =-)
