Since 2006 after studying Goldsmith, design jewelry, handicrafts of different techniques including 3D modeling and with the idea of making high quality handmade jewelry, Yiceth used Colombia’s rich natural resources, including its world famous emeralds, to develop custom designs from various raw materials according to customer needs, giving a personal and unique touch to each piece. After selling exclusively in Colombia, Yiceth is now in Los Angeles, with booths at various local markets.
Her pre-Columbian inspired designs combine varieties of handmade techniques from different regions of South America as well different fabrics and materials such as beads, silver threads, and Moralla, an emerald stone matrix containing inclusions of quartz, pyrite, calcite and emerald. She also incorporates metals such as silver and gold among others, then adds parts using 3D design software and combines all of these delicate parts to create one of a kind works of art. Yiceth will make custom made pieces upon request. Please enjoy these vibrant and beautiful works of art, created by a special person, inspired by a special country.
