Silver Filigree and Coral Earrings

$ 155.00

The Silver Filigree and Coral earrings are perfect for daily wear as well as for special occasions. Each earring is hand-made using centuries-old filigree techniques and .925 silver.

Luis began working at his father’s filigree jewelry workshop in Tamames, Salamanca when he was 14. He and his brothers now represent the third generation of goldsmiths in their family. Holding tweezers, the Méndez brothers draw fine, pliable, silver threads into intricate designs through curling, twisting, and plaiting of the metal. The threads are smoothed and twisted and then joined at points of contact. The added coral adds a pop of color for a unique look.

"We want our work to inspire an appreciation of the diversity and the beauty of the authentic, of the genuine and unique." - Luis Méndez of Luis Méndez Artesanos SL, Spain
