Amazonian inspired jewellery using curious elements such as beetle shells, parrot feathers, porcupine quills, semi precious stones and textiles handmade by Francesca Herrera
Palomita jewellery. For a woman who loves to feel exotic.
Growing up with a proud Peruvian father and beautiful bohemian mother has meant a childhood environment a little different from most. With swirls of bright colours in our Andean textiles covering our walls and furniture, exotic objects such as giant green snail shells, huge seed pods and ancient pots lining our shelves and of course the sound of my father playing his pan pipes drifting through the halls, I have been engulfed in a world of curiosities…
Subsequently I have been inspired to create my jewellery with vibrant colours and unusual natural products such as porcupine quills, real beetle shells, parrot feathers, snake spines, rough-cut semi precious stones and intriguing symbols and emblems from around the world.
