Details

If there is one thing that distinguishes the hummingbird from the rest of the avian kingdom, it is the rapidity with which their wings move--about 70 times per second while in flight. Katherine Satizabal in Mexico captures the kinetic energy of the tiny birds in this wonderful necklace. Crafted from sterling silver, the hummingbird pendant features wings that can actually move. The pendant centers a sterling rolo chain. The artisan signs her pieces with 'NASAKA', representing the initials of Katherine Satizabal Narváez.

Katherine Satizabal

"I combine my knowledge of mechanisms with my love and inspiration of nature."

“I'm Katherine Satizabal Narvaez. I came from Colombia to Mexico in 2011. I decided to stay since I was doing things... that I really like and that motivate me--designing, making jewelry and creative things. I started working in a jewelry workshop where they made silver pieces. That allowed me to learn about the different processes, materials, suppliers and how the jewelry field works. However, being away from the people I love is one of the biggest challenges. I like jewelry because with it you can make small sculptures. Silver is so versatile that it allows you to create pieces with many details, explore new ideas, and in my case, add mechanisms; creating pieces that you can keep for a lifetime, like a relic.

“My love for design and art comes from when I studied Industrial Design at the Universidad del Valle in Colombia. For some years I worked in the mechanical design industry, where I learned some techniques such as gearing, different types of mechanisms, the behavior of materials and 3D design. Several years allowed me to learn and gain experience and then make the decision to create my own designs. This has resulted in me making many mistakes; but ultimately I will improve the technique and above all, continue learning.

“Mainly I work with 925 silver; it is a very noble material that allows you to make mistakes. If, during the process, a piece is damaged or you make errors in its measurements, there is always the possibility of repairing it. And above all, the infinity of designs that you can create, letting your imagination fly. My main tool is drawing first; then with 3D design I can explore shapes and options. When planning a design, I feel like a fish in water. I have the support of the Jewelry Chamber and a workshop where they provide me with the jewelry casting and printing service. When I have the piece ready, without assembly, I take care of the entire process of finishing, polishing, assembly, welding and quality control in which I review the mechanism of the piece. The final part is the most special--to see the piece that you imagined come true. I consider that each design, especially the most complex ones, is like a child, because you take care of their process with a lot of love, until they are ready to go out in society and continue on their way. That is why, all my creations are marked with my initials NASAKA, which come from my name Katherine Satizabal Narvaez.

“Nature, with its textures, shapes and designs, gives me the inspiration to create different pieces, which are characteristic for being "kinetic", with that unique movement and hidden treasures. I combine my knowledge of mechanisms with my love and inspiration of nature.

“Finally, I want to contribute to the field of design with the 3D technique, proposing innovative pieces with applications of mechanisms, better known as “kinetic jewelry”. I also hope, little by little, to gain the trust of people, and that they like my work. And, on a personal level, to allow my restless mind to get married.”

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.
