Piece selected for the XXI Century Spanish Crafts exhibition SINGULAR.ES in Paris.
(Piezas seleccionadas para la exposición del XXI siglo Español Artes SINGULAR.ES en París.)


Origin:

Filigree Gallery. Luis Méndez Artesanos. Salamanca, Spain.
(Joyería filigrana. Luis Méndez Artesanos. Salamanca, España.)


Background:

The most representative piece of popular jewelry of Salamanca is the "charro"* button. Like all filigree jewelry, this button is made from a thread of silver or gold, which forms the flower-shaped frame of the piece. The interior spirals are made of finer twisted threads which fill the frame in order to create the surface, on which the adornments are applied.
*"Charro" is a colloquial term that refers to a person from Salamanca.

(La pieza más representativa de la joyería popular de Salamanca es el "charro" * botón. Como todas las joyas de filigrana, este botón está hecho de un hilo de plata u oro, que forma el marco de la pieza en forma de flor. Las espirales interiores están hechas de finos retorcidos hilos de rosca que rellene el encuadre con el fin de crear la superficie, en el cual se aplican los adornos.
* "Charro" es un término coloquial que se refiere a una persona de Salamanca.)

The button was used as an accessory on such garments as petticoats, doublets, drawers and waistcoats. Its use peaked in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is a whole range of different types, and although older buttons come in large sizes, today’s taste leans towards smaller models and different uses (cufflinks, rings, earrings, bracelets, etc.) designed as personal jewelry.

(El botón fue utilizado como un accesorio en tales prendas como combinaciones, jubones, calzones y chalecos. Su uso alcanzó su punto máximo en los siglos 16 y 17. Hay toda una gama de diferentes tipos, y aunque más viejos botones vienen en tamaños grandes, gusto de hoy se inclina hacia modelos más pequeños y diferentes usos (gemelos, anillos, pendientes, pulseras, etc.), diseñados como joyas personales.)
