Good evening everyone! I hope you are having a beautiful evening. Today we’ll talk again about ”The brand of the week ”, but this time I wanted to bring something different, so I’ll talk about a Chilean brand called ”Clandestino Joyas”, a creative brand created by a group of women, where they have several projects, among them the ”Naah project” and ”Geografia Magallanica” project.
These two projects are full of magic, beautiful shapes and colors, but the ”Naah project” is inspired by jewelry of the Chilean southern and it’s something I found very interesting, because we can know more about their culture and that’s the main reason I wanted to make this post.
A little more about ”Clandestino Joyas”:
Clandestino Joyas is a brand that searches inspiration and design, to show testimonial collections, causing a personal feeling to the person who wears it, making it a totally opposite to the commercial excesses of today.
In addition, it is a brand created by a group of women with different themes and passions. That’s why they made this clan, which shares a concept or a personal problem, to transform them into spontaneous jewelry with various shapes, lines, colors and materials. At this time, they have two big projects, but they still have new challenges.
They have many techniques, that’s why they explore and study the goldsmithing. Their creative processes start from a concept obtained in the research process, which will unveil the elements to make every piece.
As they have two projects, I will talk about each one, so you can know well what they do:
Naah project, jewelry inspired in the chilean southern:
It has been named ”Naah” because in the Selk’nam language means woman, that’s why they want to show a jewelry proposal that comes from several elements taken from the body art of this culture called Selk’nam. They have taken this culture as a way to recognize, praise and value their existence and legacy, because most people in Chile don’t even know this culture exists.
And I must confess I’m totally in love with this project, not only because their jewelry is beautiful or different, just because it has a meaning and that’s something many people seek.
My favorite pieces were the earrings, because the shapes are different from what we see in most collections.
”Geografia Magallanica” project:
This was a project made for a cultural space called “La Galeria Tienda de Arte y Diseno“. Magellan’s own characteristics were their inspiration for shapes and colors to create each piece. The intention of this project, it’s to invite you to take a piece of the Magellan.
The intention is to take their jewelry projects to art exhibitions of other countries, to publicize their culture and their way of working collaboratively between united goldsmiths by the same passion for art.
The materials used are varied, but the main ones are silver, copper, and complementary techniques such as enamel, resin, engraving, glass, Japanese lacquer, among others. Making the pieces even more beautiful, I’m sure you will fall in love with each design.
