It is a place that instantly attracts attention, You´ll be in love with the variety of charms and designs that can be appreciated in the momento that you enter!
What I find incredible and distinctive of these pieces is that they all have a meaning which makes them not only beautiful charms, but also personal amulets.
One of my favorites, is a bracelet with a coin engraved with a crown in the middle.
It also has a little card that says, it is a bracelet for all women with an inner princesses who are beautiful, smart and full of other virtues.
Well, that's what I remember and the message conveyed to me. The beautiful thing is that each person can interpret this positive message differently.
I was speaking the other day about many people who think products from other countries are better than those made in their own. I thinks that is a bit the way we think about indigenous products.
I admire the fact that Mercedes Salazar uses bracelets made by indigenous Colombians, garnish them with crystals and chains and makes the more modern and sophisticated without losing their style and origin.
