Inspired by the diversity of the flora and fauna present in designer Mercedes Salazar’s native Colombia, the black and white Fiesta Earrings showcase the exuberance of the local vegetation.
Suspended from the gold-plated bronze fastenings is a series of repeating woven spheres. Handcrafted by master artisans in an atelier in Bogotá, Colombia, the spheres themselves are woven from iraca palm using ancestral techniques.
With an elegant black and white colourway, this statement piece of jewellery draws upon Mercedes Salazar’s animated local community and would be the perfect addition to your jewellery box.
Woven into the manufacturing process are a series of ancestral techniques from indigenous communities across Colombia, putting into effect Mercedes Salazar’s long-term vision to support these artisans.
