For lovers of design and authentic craftsmanship Nathaly Durán is committed to the principles of preserving, valuing and reinventing. It is not about fast and ephemeral fashion, it is about author's jewelry with essence and above all the sense of respect for materials. Through jewelry, I refer to the geometry of Pre-Hispanic America, taking the square as the main shape since it symbolizes what was created on earth.
Rumi - conscious rocks
Rumi was born from the personal desire to make more ethical and sustainable jewelry. Like my other works, they contain details that refer to Pre-Hispanic America highlighting the role of the jewel as a cultural heritage. These "conscious rocks" are made of recycled paper that I transform through rigorous treatment and mould by hand, as if it were clay. These "rocks" are then dried naturally, in the open air for 24-48 hours. Finally, I apply the same process as for metals using precision tools to give them their finished look.
Kurumi - rainbow in a box
This collection reflects the fusion of man-made shapes such as square and rectangle with lively colors found in nature, such as lake placid blue, sherwood green and ocean turquoise. The shapes are first created in clay before being transformed into silver. The inside part of the box is based on resin carefully mixed with color pigments. Each texture is unique and the color can be selected according to your state of mind.
Itzel - evening star
This collection is probably the most timeless. Its name Itzel comes from the indigenous Mayan language and was inspired in textures that are found in fabrics and tissues. It follows intuition and spontaneity without looking for perfection.
Everybody has creative ideas waiting to be realised. If you want to design your own unique jewel and have it hand made with care and precision, I will be happy to help you. The world of artisanal jewelry offers almost unlimited possibilities of creating unique objects from lily flowers to tiny electric guitars.
