Details

The rich tones of amber flow like warm honey into the shining elegance of silver. Olga Hinojosa is inspired by nature's uncultivated beauty and works with the natural shape of amber, creating an imaginative ring for the refined wardrobe.

.925 Sterling silver.

When used in jewelry, amber beads can include a stunning arrangement of tones and hues. Natural amber ranges from yellow to deep orange. It may sometimes even have a green cast to it, as well as opaque swirls within. Because amber is the preserved resin of prehistoric trees that grew millions of years ago, it sometimes has tiny inclusions of plants and insects -- making it highly prized.

“I have been working hand-in-hand with you for several years. These marvelous years have allowed me to grow and create beautiful designs full of meaning.

“As a designer, I have always looked to grow more and bring my work to the best places possible. Novica has offered me the most satisfaction and tranquility. I have managed to share my designs in foreign countries through Novica. I believe that having your work appreciated is the most satisfying thing as an artist.

“My goal has always been to preserve the silver traditions of Mexico, along with its beautiful techniques, such as lost-wax casting and laminate. Seeing a piece melted down, ready to be molded, is very satisfying.

“In these years, I have been allowed to exhibit my pieces in various museums. Aside from that, the most important thing for me is creating a unique piece filled with emotion.

“Through this adventure, we employ three families who are in charge of the melting, chiseling, and detailing processes so that each piece is of the best quality. One thing that I have learned is that it is important to value what you do and how you do it. This is what you imbue in each thing that you do, and it shows.

“My primary success is through relying on the people with whom I began this adventure, including my clients, who give me the opportunity to continue showing my designs. With Novica, I am in good company with an enormous journey ahead.”

Original Artisan Story

Olga Hinojosa began designing and making silver jewelry in 1970. She studied at the Talleres de Artes Plásticas y Artesanías at the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social. She has also studied in specialized workshops in various cities throughout Mexico. The artist has exhibited her work since 1972 in Mexico City, Washington D.C., Venezuela, Canada and Germany, among other countries. In 1984, she began to teach her trade and open workshops for production. Hinojosa became successful at commercializing her products through her own stores, but she decided to close them down a few years ago to dedicate herself to her workshops and have more time to teach her skill and create new designs. Since then, Hinojosa has come to treasure her unique skills and craft more than ever.

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

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.
