Argentinean jewelry designer Fernanda Sibilia creates contemporary, eclectic, and geometric jewelry that really defies description! She uses hammered metals in 24 kt gold plating, old-fashioned brass, 925 silver, copper and bronze to create bold yet contemporary and totally wearable jewelry.
Andean people were skilled in the use of gold, silver and copper, using these metals for tools as well as jewelry. Pre-Columbian gold ornamental objects, probably had religious functions, as they were often linked with funeral rites. The most beautiful gold of the Andes region came from the centers of Chimu, Chanchan and Ika, and especially the first, during the Tiahunaco and Inca periods. Apart from the gold beating and repousse work, the people of the Andes, in particular the northern Chibcha, knew how to weld and understood the lost wax process, alloys and copper gilding.
