Mix and Match
The composition of the week
The fauna of Mompox, the deep green of the swamp in Magdalena and the biodiversity of the Caribbean coast are present as motifs in these earrings. This time Mercedes Salazar has collaborated with a community of artisans from different regions of Colombia. Fishes, stars, corals and magic sculpted, hand painted and woven shells in natural fibers and gold-plated bronze give life to the island I dreamed of, a place to return to, where you take a deep breath and walk barefoot on the sand.

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.”
