Interview by Farah Kanaan
Colombian artisanal jewelry delivered straight to your doorstep. What a nice way to uplift your spirits or those of your loved ones!
Ana Carolina Valencia is a jewelry collection with a distinctive bronze look, harkening artisanal skills of the past to create modern pieces of Colombian beauty.
My inspiration comes from empowered women who have the confidence to show their inner beauty. My Colombian roots are reflected in all of my pieces. I love to showcase Malachite; the green stones reflect my countries beautiful natural environment and pair with the gold sets beautifully.
– Ana Carolina Valencia
Sourcing raw materials throughout Colombia, the brand takes the traditional filigree technique (a European process practiced for centuries) and made it their own.
The result is earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets that are worn as pieces of art. Exquisite detail, fine materials, and artisanal mastery combine to create jewelry unlike any other.
The integration of raw Colombia emeralds, mother of pearl, quartz, Swarovski crystals, and other mixes of materials make for a stunning accent to any wardrobe. Wearable art at its finest.
It takes anywhere between a day to two days to create one set of jewelry. We love to handcraft our pieces so that each piece of jewelry has its own unique design.
