Description

In 2008, Liz Santa Olalla, who had more than 15 years of experience in jewelry, decided to start her own company. For a while, she collaborated with important Mexican jewelry companies such as Joske’s. When she presented a project to the recognized Mexican actress, Yadhira Carrillo for her store “Momentos by Yadhira”, she gave Liz Santa Olalla the idea to start a line for babies, which pushed her to open her own company based on her love for designs in silver and after realizing the recognition of Mexican designers was getting stronger in the jewelry world. This is how Liz Santa Olalla started her first collection made of pearls and silver. Her collection Huichol was created after realizing Mexican handicrafts had a more positive impact among foreigners than Mexicans, which is why she decided to combine her designs in silver with huichol handicrafts. She contacted a Huichol family from the state of Jalisco and managed to create this extraordinary combination of huichol art with her exclusive designs in silver, supporting the elderly during the process, since some of her bracelets are made by them. This is a pastel bracelet made by huichol artisans with a .925 silver fretwork plate of an exclusive design in the middle.
