About

Story

It is my intent to create objects that carry both simplicity and a strong sense of craftsmanship at the same time.

I love playing with contrasts in colors, materials and textures. I value materials by their function and not necessarily by their cultural value, and specially love leather because it ages with so much dignity and looks so beautiful in all stages of its life.

Sol del Sur is the jewelry line by Chilean designer Soledad Proaño.

Starting from an early age Sol had an instinct for making things, which she put to good use as a teenager, when she hitchhiked throughout Chile during summers selling beaded jewelry and leather goods that she made herself. Right after finishing her engineering studies, a course in color studies brought her back to this early passion for design and craft. Moving between the two for a while, it was relocating to the US that gave her a chance to take her passion more seriously. The line of jewelry Sol del Sur was started in 2009.

Sol obtained a certificate in metalsmithing and took other design and art courses at Pasadena City College in California, before moving to Brooklyn, NY in the Summer of 2013. All her jewelry is made by hand in her light-filled studio in Bushwick.

Sol del Sur jewelry has been sold at reputable stores such like the Museum of Fine Art in Boston and Anthropologie.com. It is now available locally at independent shops in the US, as well as worldwide through soldelsurshop.com.

Materials
When buying our supplies we always look for three things: smaller suppliers, 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 are made in the US, as well as the brass pieces.
• Brass findings are either made in the US (sometimes to order) or imported.
• Some of the leather is made in the US, most is made in India following all environmental and health regulations from the US and Europe.
• The fibers used in our braidings are either made in the US or in Italy.

Our gold plated pieces are 18kt gold, plated to the best industry standard, made to last.

Our goldfilled metal has a very thick layer of 14kt gold that should 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.

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.
