Filigree Adornments, Dayan Candamil's signature touch. Every handbag by Dayan Candamil includes her signature touch that makes it a one-of-a-kind work of art.

 

Every handbag by Dayan Candamil includes her signature touch that makes it a one-of-a-kind work of art - an exquisitely designed piece of jewelry. Made of 970 sterling silver, this filigree adornment is handcrafted by artisans in the small, remote Colombian village of Mompox, seven hours from Cartagena, the nearest city.

 

For centuries the Mompox villagers have created these delicate designs of miniature proportions. Their knowledge of ancient filigree weaving techniques has been passed along from generation to generation.

 

 

The jewelers' work is slow and refined. Using only rudimentary tools, they stretch, twist, flatten and finally interweave fine sterling threads of different thickness into endless circles. The result is an intricate design of superb quality and timeless beauty.

 

Dayan Candamil has established a team in Mompox to work exclusively on her designs. She personally delivers her concepts to the Momposino artisans and oversees their efforts to create prototypes in brass. They are led by a master craftsman who has worked with filigree for more than 50 years.

 

 

Every filigree piece is unique, requiring intense attention to detail and two to three weeks to be produced.

 

Proud of her Colombian heritage, Dayan Candamil is pleased to include the elegance of filigree fine jewelry in her handbag creations and to share this legendary artisan craft with the world.
