New Designer!

Hi Everybody!
     I'm excited to announce my new collaboration with a Colombian designer specializing in Pre-Columbian iconography! Her designs are based on artifacts from the Pre-Columbian cultures inhabiting the geographic area of the modern day nation-state of Colombia, and while she typically works in gold, she has designed an entire line in sterling silver just for Design Imports. All of the icons are based on molds she has taken from actual artifacts in the collection at the Zenu Gold Museum in Cartegena, Colombia - she's the only artist to have been allowed that privilege! - and casts each silver piece individually using a lost wax process. Check out her work on the page titled Pre-Columbian Designs!

Hoping you're as excited as I am,
