    GREAT GIFT! excellent handcraft and customer service. My custom made rings are exactly as I imagined. Nara heard all my concerns and took in consideration all the details and designs I wanted on my rings. Delivery was within the expected dates. If you want something unique and special I fully recommend her workshop and expertise.

Si quieres algo único y especial, te recomiendo su taller y experiencia.

Jewelry made with upcycled beads and materials. Sustainable Jewelry

I am an Architect, Jewelry Designer and Upcycler.

While studing Architecture I was under a lot of Stress so I started to make jewelry as a hobby, to keep my mind at peace. I use my old and discarted necklaces, to make new earrings; I've been upcycling since.

I retire from Architecture in 2014 and in 2016 studied metalsmithing for two years in Bogota, Colombia. Right now All pieces of jewelry are handcrafted in my studio in Panama City, Panama.

I work with recycled sterling silver and reuse beads/materials from old jewelry and give them new life. I love to mix, transform and modify them. The mix of these “Old-and-New” results in individual pieces with unique design and craftsmanship, which gives them their charm and personality.

I am mostly inspired by architectural shapes and a mix of nature (Shapes, Colors, Landscape).

>> On my way to be full responsible and sustainable in every step, from designing to manufacturing and delivery.

Is it real Sterling Silver?

Yes, it's real 925 Sterling Silver!
I usually used recycled Sterling Silver, but it is still REAL Silver.

Why do you reuse beads and materials?

Thinking Consciously and in a sustainable way. There is so much potential in these materials, still useful and beautiful. So, why not?

Do you clean these upcycled and reused materials before using them?

Yes, of course. I dismantle and clean every piece myself. I use a a little brush with water and a little bit of soap to washed them.
