Adriana Guelfi Herrera is the dream of an artist who sought to translate the magic of Nature’s life cycles, into her jewels. Born of an interactive and conscious search within Nature, each piece is handcrafted by the artist. Most of them are one of a kind jewels, a faithful legacy of Nature.
Our jewellery pieces are Sterling silver, bronze, gold-plated, leather, wool, semiprecious and native stones, of extreme quality and craftsmanship.
Our packaging is handmade, from the hand-dyed cloth of our bags to the boxes made of native wood and handstamped with our brand name.
Dead Nature…Alive is an ecosystem composed of small collections inspired by Nature. Some of them are born from dead elements from Nature; others vibrate with the life colours of incredible flowers.
In this cycle in which life dies… only to be reborn and live again… we can appreciate the magic and wonder of creation.
