Details

"I created this collection after seeing the chainmail armors worn by medieval knights. Each piece in this collection is named after a European city," confides Diana Solis. This original pair of earrings is crafted by hand in sections with fine threads of sterling silver which are also prepared at the workshop.

Solis designs a stylish clasp, which requires light pressure to hook and unhook sideways.

"I've been working with you since 2014, and have had the opportunity to learn the great importance of quality, technique and maintaining tradition. We work with a variety of techniques, such as filigree, molding, lost-wax casting, texturizing, and textiles, and we are even creating a collection with other metals.

"You have allowed us to better position our work, giving us a focus on sales that has helped us grow. Our sales with you represent 25 percent of our total income. This has allowed us to continue working as a family, contracting help if necessary. Our silverwork sustains three separate families. We have also received some honorable mentions for our designs. This greatly inspires us and helps us remain active.

"Our jewelry is made with love. Our goal is to continue maintaining quality and continue delighting our clients with designs that are full of tradition."

Original Artisan Story

"I am passionate about my work — it's fascinating because it expresses the best of who I am. And I'm so demanding of the quality of my work, that it makes me seek the best techniques in my line of work.

"My love for jewelry began when I was a little girl thanks to my father who, as a silversmith, provided for our numerous family – we are nine children. So it feels like this is something that runs through my veins.

"I'm always eager to learn more about my craft. I developed my skills working at different workshops but also on my own so I could create my own designs. My father was a great teacher who taught me all there is to know about this art and its tools.

"I set up my own workshop in 2006, and I've gradually been acquiring the tools and equipment that I need to craft my own designs.

"I've also enjoyed crafting jewelry by hand as well as the different procedures such as mixing the alloys. We also make our own silver strands for the woven pieces. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction seeing a finished piece of jewelry, especially if my design is quite laborious to make. I enjoy the challenge of crafting them.

"My inspiration comes from the ideas that may come to mind and that sustain my own unique style. My greatest challenge has been establishing my own workshop and teaching my relatives so that this art form continues to live in our souls. We do this in honor of my mom and dad, who have passed away.

"It's thanks to my parents' encouragement that I've gone after my dreams and made them come true, like being able to create work opportunities for my relatives as well as for artisans in our community. I teach them, and they teach me. I listen to their proposals and, in that way, we really work together as a team.

"My work is guided by my motto, 'Keep tradition alive. It must not get lost, but it can be modernized and it must be offered to the younger generations so they can learn.'"

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

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

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.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
