Rojo Pitaya “Handcrafted Jewelry” is a company from Michoacan founded in 2010. It was born from the idea of creating a handcrafted jewelry line inspired by the Mexican culture. Its concept is the contemporary popular art. With the idea in mind of creating handmade products using Mexican materials, Rojo Pitaya has chosen to work with earthenware clay to create handcrafted pieces, using a 100% crafting process, miniature paintings and embroidery. The Mexicana Collection, is inspired by the warmth, folklore and popular art of some Mexican iconic representations such as the heart, the Catrina, the watermelon, birds, flowers and Frida Kahlo. These Rectangular earrings belong to this collection. Made of earthenware clay. Hand painted leaves and claw set in alpaca silver.

Rojo Pitaya

Rojo Pitaya is a growing micro-business founded by Christophe Carlier and Guadalupe Tafoya who work every day to develop new designs and to generate employment for the people from the community of Pátzcuaro, Michoacán. Each piece is handmade with a traditional manufacturing process. The production starts with a sketch that is later modeled on clay, then the clay is cooked, painted and varnished. A final touch is given at the assembling workshop, where they mount the pieces. To complement each piece, they use materials like stones, suede or leather. Rojo Pitaya currently has two major collections:  The Mexican collection inspired by Mexican folklore themes like “catrinas”, hearts, Frida Kahlo, and watermelons. The second collection, is a contemporary collection that is inspired by design and color with a Mexican touch that at the same time is considered universal.
