Hi, I'm Sol. As a teenager, I hitchhiked throughout Chile during summers selling jewelry and leather goods that I made myself. Years later and now settled in the US, my designs translate my experience as an migrant living in vibrant New York City mixed with my longing for experiences in the calm and openness of nature.
Currently living in NYC, through my craft practice I try to stay tuned to the feelings of connection and adventure I enjoyed traveling through Chile, still moved by the magical landscapes that I was able to witness and that I carry inside me wherever I am. I hope for you, the wearer, to pause and find those silent and open spaces that are within you.
I make my jewelry one piece at a time in my studio in Queens, with recycled sterling silver, 14k gold fill and brass. With a global aesthetic, my pieces combine both clean lines and organic shapes, incorporating textural elements such as metal hammering and up-cycled leather. The result is wearable art that is unassuming, graceful and distinctive.
