Our Jetlagmode Melted Ear Cuff was created to be used every day, you can mix it with other pieces from the collection to create the coolest look!
It is made completely by hand in their atelier in Cali-Colombia, with sustainable materials such as recycled brass mixed with silver / Gold-plated 24K.
The step by step is as follows:
First they create the wax shape, carved by Karim (their Jewelry leader) completely by hand. When they are not satisfied with the wax result, they design the piece in a 3D program on the computer and it is laser printed.
Once it is approved, they make a mother mold from which multiple copies are made. The trees are made with wax, they are filled with metal (which in our case is recycled bronze mixed with silver. They buy that bronze to other jewelers and we do it with the purpose of reducing waste in the industry).
Upon leaving the oven, each piece is polished by hand, by their team of goldsmiths and finally they are bathed in 24K gold (which we outsource to an expert company in this technique).
