Updates

Preparing the inventory for the Spring cleaning Sale. These pieces will be gone for good! Sad, but necessary for this creative brain...
Only at Macy's!!grin The Wrap bracelet and Reflector necklace in an exclusive colorway, only at the Herald Square store. If you are in or visiting NY soon, come and get yours! Otherwise, choose from three other colorways available on my Etsy shop.
About to ship these now! If you are in Minneapolis, you can visit the store Greater Goods and pick one up in the next couple days. If not, they're just a click away in my shop!

About

Story

For nearly 10 years, Sol Proaño, formerly Sol del Sur, has been designing and creating handmade jewelry crafted exclusively with mixed metals, leather, yarn, and silk. Items are made primarily of recycled materials that are purchased, whenever possible, from other US-based small businesses. But a commitment to the community doesn’t end there. A portion of all sales are donated to the UN refugee agency, UNHCR.

Founder and designer Sol Proaño creates one-of-a-kind jewelry that marries her South American roots with American minimalistic style. Her pieces feature clean lines, interesting shapes, and lots of texture, and many include elements such as leather braiding and metal hammering. The result is wearable art that is simple, elegant, unique, and crafted with love in New York City. Sol’s collections are available for purchase online, and have appeared in renowned retailers including Anthropologie, Macy’s, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

She's had a great eye and a knack for creativity her entire life. A move from Chile to the US landed Sol in a Los Angeles-based art program, which led her to design an original collection of jewelry and wall pieces. Sol's necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings are all masterpieces, waiting to complement your own individual style.


Materials:
When buying our supplies we always look for three things: smaller companies, US made, and environmentally aware products. Here's the detail of our current sourcing - we hope soon all our supplies will be made locally.

All our fine metals and findings (clasps, tags...) are made in the US. Sterling Silver is recycled.
Brass findings are either made in the US (sometimes to order) or imported. The brass chain is made in the US.
The leather cord is made in India, following all environmental and health regulations from the US and Europe. We buy it undyed (natural) and then dye it black using a natural oxidation method.
The fibers used in our braidings are made in the US or Italy.
We don’t use any plated metals. Our goldfilled metal has a very thick layer of 14kt gold that will behave as regular solid gold with the proper care. It is also appropriate to wear for people with allergies - we use it in all our earwires (except as noted in post style earrings).

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

I am wholesale friendly. You can find me on the Etsy Wholesale website, or contact me at hola [!at] solproano.com for pricing information and terms. Please include your store information when contacting me!

Custom and personalized orders

I very much welcome custom orders. Please don't hesitate to contact me with your idea! Sometimes custom orders will have extra charges, depending on how custom they are. Also, please note, custom orders are not returnable or refundable.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every order will ship packaged ready for gift-giving in a reusable, hand-dyed muslin bag. If you buy several pieces, I might contact you to know if you want everything to be packaged separated (as gifts) or together in one bag (as only for yourself to keep!). The less waste, the better.
