KyD Artisan Collection, 2023

So happy to offer works from Buenos Aires, Argentina duo Karina Firpo and Diego Cano. This pair has created hundreds of unique jewelry pieces and decorative arts for Cactus Gallery since 2005.

Works are created from German silver (called alpaca In South America) and formed using a hammer and soldered with silver.

German silver when used in the creation of jewelry and art objects resembles sterling silver. It does not contain silver, rather it is an alloy mixture of copper, zinc and nickel. It is a strong and very durable metal combination that wears exceptionally well. My alpaca jewelry and art objects are 20 years old. 

The posts on the earrings and the chains are hypoallergenic (stainless steel).

The leather/suede necklaces have a handmade closure.
