Dia de Muertos Calaveritas earrings

With less than 3 weeks until Day of the Dead I'm super excited to share my recent collection of Calaveritas earrings.

These cute earrings have at their centre a howlite white skull surrounded by a colourful flower shape made from Czech Dead beads, topped with a Silver earring hook.

They're about 3.5cm diameter, so not too big and imposing but the vibrant and shinny colours will look stunning with anything you wear.

I have a range of colours available, from Neon Pink to Red, to Black and silver and many more. And as always, if you've got a specific colour range in mind let me know and these can be custom made.

So, get ready for Day of the Dead (or even Halloween) and pick up a pair of these earrings from my Etsy shop. They're retailing at only £10, so there's really no excuse!

#GoMexican Independence Day Party

Last Thursday we celebrated Independence Day in style at Victoria House in London where Mestizo restaurant and the Mexican embassy organised a fantastic party.

On top of food, mariachis and margaritas there was also a Mexican market where we held a stand along with our friends from Navar Silver, La Mexa Clothes, Ay Que Chula, Mexart, MX Foods, Gringa Dairy and Kankun.

The event was a great success with a huge turnout and fantastic atmosphere - something we'd recommend to anyone in the future.

Style meets culture

There's something indescribable about owning and wearing hand-crafted jewellery. Not only does it look unique but it also feels unique. Especially when it's routes are from a strong cultural lineage.

I feel passionately for my culture, country and people. And Huichol runs in my blood. Not only do I create age-old Huichol designs but I also take it's inspiration and infuse it into modern and contemporary styles.

Culture doesn't stay still. It evolves, grows and looks forward while always respecting it's past.

Many of my creations can be found for sale on my online shop here at etsy.

Also, much of my work is custom and I work with my clients to create their desired styles, colours and patters. So please do get in touch if you'd like to discuss something even more bespoke.

Dia del Niño - Wahaca Brixton

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to support the Dia del Niño celebrations at Wahaca Brixton. Dia del Niño translates as "Day of Children", which in Mexico is an annual celebration for children.

Tutorial for beaded flower

(Improved technique)


Its been months since may last tutorial, very recently somebody requested a printable version and while making it I realized that now days my flowers are made with a different and easier technique.

I'm using exactly the same colors as Previous tutorial. So you will end up with the same result; its up to you to choose witch one is best.
Lets begin:

Huichol art for your pets!

We've recently had a new addition to our family, a beautiful white puppy lurcher. She's called Tequila and she's been keeping us all busy!

When buying all the needed bits and pieces (bowls, leads, food etc) the idea of huichol-inspired collar struck me. So, a few days later here's the result.

It's been a very long time since my last post, so without further ado, here we are!

This post is a special request as I'll be sharing a design pattern for one of my recent bracelets, the Ojo de dios pattern.
