Geometric Filigree - intersecting circles (gold plated silver)
This piece is created by Andrea Tello, a Jeweler since 1998 in Cuenca, Ecuador, who focusses on a "savoir-faire" technique also known as Filigree. Andrea's pieces feature this traditional Latin American technique within both modern and traditional designs from the Andes regions of Ecuador. Andrea Tello's work focusses on preserving the intricate techniques of the Andeans indigenous cultures, with each piece having historical and cultural significance.
Every piece is hand made from sterling silver, with some then being gold plated due to the delicacy of the lines requiring the base strength of silver to complete the designs.
