Colección Oaxaqueña is a set of jewellery that celebrates Oaxacan culture. It is composed of a pair of earrings, a ring and a pendant, all embossed with a traditional Oaxacan pattern.
Given my Mexican background, I wanted to design everyday jewellery that reflected this identity and lived experience of the wearer. This type of pattern is typically embroidered and worn by Oaxacan women, and deeply reminds me of home.
Research on embroidery patterns and available materials in the region were thoroughly researched during the making of the collection. Once the final design was sketched out, it was replicated on Rhinoceros 3D and turned into this gold-plated collection.
