The work in silver and nickel silver is like a flash of moon on a starry night, a dance of lights and shadows that reflects the magic of the ancestral craftsmanship of the Araucanía, O'Higgins and Maule region. In the artisan's workshop, metals become masterpieces, and the hands that shape them carry with them centuries of wisdom.
Silver, noble and resplendent, becomes jewels that tell stories of the earth, water and air. Each bracelet, each necklace is an ode to Chilean nature, a symphony of mountains, forests and rivers carved in precious metal.
Alpaca, with its subtle and elegant shine, adds depth and texture to the craftsmanship, like nature itself awakening in the light of day. The Mapuches, custodians of the land, have inherited the wisdom of their ancestors and capture it in each piece of jewelry. Each design is a tribute to their culture, a testament to their connection to the land and spirit of their ancestors.
- Store your pieces in a cool, dry place, preferably in a jewelry bag or box to avoid oxidation and scratches.
- Avoid contact with chemicals: Protect your jewelry by avoiding contact with harsh chemicals, such as perfumes, lotions, chlorine and cleaning products. These can cause discoloration and damage to the metal.
- Use a soft, non-abrasive cleaning cloth to gently rub the silver and nickel silver surfaces. This will help remove dirt and restore its natural shine.
- Soaking in warm water and mild soap: If the jewelry is very dirty, you can soak it in warm water with a little mild soap for a few minutes. Then, gently scrub with a soft-bristled toothbrush and rinse with clean water. Make sure to dry it completely before storing it.
- If the alpaca acquires a yellow tone over time, dilute a tablespoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water and moisten a clean cloth with the mixture. Pass it on, dry and the metal will regain its shine.
- Avoid contact with hard surfaces: When storing or wearing nickel silver jewelry, be careful to avoid contact with hard surfaces that may scratch or bend the nickel silver, as it is a fairly soft metal.
