The artisans of Colombia are fortunate to be blessed with the ancestral technique of embroidery and bronze molding. Bronze flattened and molded to an uneven loop for a display of unorthodox vision of life looks exquisite when worn with any casual outfit. The Colombian women design each jewellery piece with great attention to detail. For a unique touch to it, beautifully dyed fiber fabric of ‘palm of werregue’ that is brought from the Colombian Pacific Coast is wrapped neatly on the edges.
The minimalist studs feature 24k gold plated finish for a glistening sheen that’s subtle and subdued. Pair it with casual to formal wear and these matchless pieces would make the next fashion statement for you!
• 24k gold plated bronze uneven studs
• Hand molded into uneven oval flattened shape
• Natural fiber fabric ‘palm of werregue’
• Multi-colored dyed threads against golden plating
Each ornamental jewellery is exquisitely designed using the ancestral techniques of embroidery. The origin of such masterful artisanship to create these individualistic pieces can be traced back to the pre-Colombian era, when the indigenous population of Chibcha were famous for gold work. The spirit of their original craftsmanship is revived via these gorgeous hoop earrings and hundreds of other exquisite handicrafts.
At Bochica, we aim to showcase the artisanal products carefully crafted by women of Colombia. It is an opportunity for native artisans to earn an income through fair trade. Moreover, it’s a massive effort to help keep alive the crafty traditions of Colombian indigenous communities.
