The Mountain Earrings are made with recycled Teak wood, collected from large wood shops in Medellin, where the brand buy the small remnants, avoiding tons of waste which allow them to make a contribution to a more conscious production.
Each piece is carved around and by hand by Luis, an expert in wood carving, in his workshop. First, the wood must go through a removal process to prevent the final product from deforming, that is why it is left to dry between 3 and 4 days, and then goes on to carving. Each pair of earrings takes about 4 hours to be carved in detail and is finally finished to protect the piece. This work is done with liquid porcelain. The art of applying porcelain tile well is quite complex, because if it is applied incorrectly, brushstrokes or patches would appear damaging all the previous work done. Then Luis goes on to make the holes to put the rings that finally allow the grip to the gold piece (Studs) and also for the details in freshwater pearls.
The union between artisans and jewelers always passses through a curation process by the brand's production leaders, both in Medellin and Cali, for quality control.
Can be worn two different ways as pictured!
