Embracing our goldsmiths rootsSay hello
Napaloli, It's a hug. I'm hugging you.
Napaloli means embraced in nahuatl. Lets embrance our goldsmiths roots.Say hello
My first impulse, to make jewelry were the rings. I found them easy to create. They are affable, private, close, and personal, such in the case of wedding rings. They become part of you, they embrace you. It means beautifying yourself in a small expression but in a great unbreakable strength of beauty. That’s how Napaloli began.
Necklaces were my second step in jewelry; designing charms and just adding a chain in shape and size that provide harmony in its composition.
Before I was not used to wear earrings. I did not identify with this accessory, but then following an order, I had the need to create them. This made me research and get closer to its composition to visualize the structure and articulation. Now I love and I really enjoy using my own product. You can find the first set of earrings at IIK SPA.
As I mentioned, the process of making jewelry has been slow. I've spent a lot of time making rings, in turn, the development of other accessories was not the center of my focus. Bracelets are also something that I’m passionate about and it motivates me to continue to create an entire collection.
01Choose a stone
I start by picking a stone, from this, is how I interpret the design. In case of not using a stone, I skip to the next step.
With the spirit lamp and the instruments for modeling wax, it is how it starts in a tangible way the creation of the piece.
Using a centrifuge machine for pouring, the next step is to melt the metal. In centrifugal casting, a permanent mold is continuously rotated at high speed as the molten metal is poured. Molten metal is cast into the wall centrifugal mold inside, where it solidifies after cooling.
07Polish and darken
The last step is to polish the piece, if the design requires to darken some of the surfaces of the silver, then I oxide completely the piece and then give brightness to the protruding parts.
I take my sketchbook and my pencil and begin to translate that idea, I play with shape of the stone and try to provide a foundation to continue the organic of its structure.
04Process of lost wax
It is time to put the wax in a beaker and cover it with investment. After curing, it goes in the kiln and starts the burnout process.
06Sanding and filing
Now it is time to clean the piece, removing excess silver, sanding, filing the rough edges, leaving it ready for the detail finish I want to give.
Abrazos que cubren el alma.
