We individually handcraft each of our bracelets using traditional techniques, that have been passed down for generations.
We use only solid metals in our bracelets, meaning there is no metal plating to ever wear off or chip away. The metals in our bracelets primarily consist of Pure Copper and different Copper Alloys such as; Jewelers’ Brass and German Silver. Click here to learn more about the benefits of wearing copper.
Each of our bracelets are annealed to enhance their strength and flexibility.
Is a special technique used in metal forming, of heat-treating metal in order to relax and realign its crystal structure. Annealing is meant to reduce hardness, and increase metal’s flexibility. Since metal tends to harden the more it is worked with, some of our more complex patterns, such as the Sage Bundle, are annealed several times before they find their human wrists.
Due to enhanced flexibility after the annealing process, our bracelets become more adjustable for a custom fit, increasing their comfort and metal to skin contact.
Is a technique of soldering several metals together into the same piece of jewelry. This technique requires delicate precision, and with practice one learns how to understand the different temperatures of each metal, by reading the glow of the torch flame as they are heated.
Preserving Cultural Traditions
Sergio has traveled every continent learning his craft. From the Andes to the Himalayas, the Sahara to the Amazon, Sergio met with master craftsmen who taught him ancient metalworking techniques, and shared their inherent beliefs of wearing metals for health and vitality. Sergio respectfully preserves these cultural traditions by incorporating them in the design and creation of his jewelry.
“While traveling around the world I always made a point of meeting colleagues,” Sergio says. “It was not a problem if we didn’t share a common language, I just needed to show some of my work for them to invite me in and show me their pieces. Often we would end up in their shops doing demonstrations for each other.”
