For some reason, I feel like silver is meant for hands that work, to empower rather than just adorn. You get used to its tone and the light it creates and it becomes like a charm. Once you start wearing it, you can't take it off.
I've been reading about how silver has been in contact with humans for thousands of years. It has some properties that have played a significant role in our history. It's antibacterial, so besides being used to heal wounds, people used it to collect water, store food and even prevent diseases and viruses. It has so many benefits and it made me feel a primal connection. Sometimes, without even realizing it, I play with my rings, twirling and touching them and it surprisingly brings me a sense of calm. I've never been into jewelry until I embarked on this journey and now I feel a deep connection to a material that accompanies me every day, making me feel powerful and connected to both my present self and our ancestors from centuries ago. It's like a protective shield I always carry with me.
These pieces bring me joy. They represent months of work and rewards, just like someone who works, sows, and reaps, all while enjoying the process. I'm wearing Fruto, Guinda, Uva, Estiu, Earcuff and Simuero bracelet, all from the latest collection, El Fruto. And of course, my Gota ring, one of the first pieces we ever created, instantly takes me back to the room where Simuero was born. It reminds me that nothing happens without hard work.
