Unique piece made entirely by hand.

Most of the indigenous people of America, from the north to the far south, were known to adorn their bodies richly with paintings, tattoos, jewelry and feathers. With the Spanish colonization, new techniques and styles became popular and the native jewelry began to evolve with new combinations of materials and designs, giving birth to high quality pieces and a unique style, full of creativity and imagination.
