Mix and Match
The composition of the week
‘La isla’ is a journey across some of Mercedes Salazar’s favorite corners of Colombia. Mompox and its fauna, the deep green shades of La Ciénaga within the Magdalena region and the biodiversity of the Caribbean Coast are present as motifs along the collection. This time they have collaborated with a community of master artisans from diverse regions of the country. Fishes, stars, corals and magical shells sculpted, painted and woven by hand in gold-plated bronze and natural fibers, give birth to this island Mercedes has dreamed of. A place to come back, where one can take a deep breath and walk barefoot along the coast.

Colombian jewelry designer, Mercedes Salazar, finds endless possibilities when designing her exotic jewelry pieces. Since studying the art of jewels and jewelry making in Mexico, Salazar designs and constructs her pieces through her fundamental principle of preserving artisanal techniques in Bogota.
We admire her work and the way she wants to preserve the craftsmanship techniques, by working with local and indigenous communities from Colombia.
“Artisanship as art, the journey as an infinite discovery, spirituality as a path.
Colombia as the beginning.”
