  • the story

Petal to the Metal

Argentinian jewelry designer Fernanda Sibilia brings the flair of traditional Latin American handicraft to her rustic, hand-hammered metal pieces. To make this autumnal necklace, she deftly shapes brass sheets into delicate petals and then electroplates select elements with lustrous gold and warm copper. She then lets the magic of oxidation give select pieces a one-of-a-kind patina that varies in hue from dark umber to creamy sea green. To finish, she strings the soft, triangular pieces onto thick chain that showcases the various processes that give this accessory its one-of-a-kind allure. Handcrafted in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
