As many of you already know, I am obsessed with yellow gold and am always looking for new pieces to add to my collection. Recently I came across Colombiana Artisan Jewelry and their intriguing 18 karat gold plated designs immediately captured my attention. Colombiana features pre-Colombian, Meso-American symbols in their designs that are created in bronze and finished with 18 karat gold plating. The jewelry is bold with a strong sense of historical influence. The pieces are made in Colombia and often feature gemstones or materials such as leather. Immediately I was taken with the Bronze Carino Monkey Bracelet (see above), I love the visual impact it offers and the whimsical nature of the monkeys. Another piece that I am particularly fond of is the Leather Tassel Necklace (see below), I love the use of the disc and charms to create an inspired and unique piece.
