Our first trunk show of the season features Hasta El Cogote from Colombia. Hasta El Cogote began in 2013 as an artistic search to open the spectrum of traditional jewelry by implementing sculptural techniques, focusing on creating figurative and organic pieces.

Andrea Hermida and Valeria Leal, founders of Hasta El Cogote, are trained in plastic arts, so their pieces are more than jewels, they are small works of art, and require the most delicate and meticulous production process. They work primarily in silver, gold, rhodium and some of their alloys. They have included other materials such as natural stones and alternative elements such as resin and acrylic, always keeping in mind the  shapes of fauna, flora and the human figure.

Their latest collection "Braiding Freedom" is a tribute to the resistance and ingenuity of the Palenqueras communities towards freedom through their hairstyles in times of slavery. The ethnic history of Colombia, and the role of women is silenced. Recovering this memory is Hasta el Cogote's intention, and they transform their symbols into jewels.

In the Colombian Caribbean, during colonial times, only Afro-descendant slaves knew the exit routes from the lands of their masters. In their illusion of freedom, and they created a language from their hairstyles and braids. The textures, forms and designs formed maps that indicated the escape routes to what is known as San Basilio de Palenque. 

Please join us for a "meet the designer" event on Saturday, November 7. Designer/founder Andrea Hermida will be at Nomad Chic from noon to 4 pm. Sign-ups requested so we are aware of number of people to expect.  Thank you!
