    European Silversmiths who accompanying viceroys on their trips during the Spanish Colonial era brought the filigree technique to Mompox and Santa Fe de Antioquia, in the current country of Colombia. The technique was learned by the local artisans and goldsmiths in these indigenous regions. Since then, their knowledge has been transferred from generation to generation and kept carefully faithful to the original technique.
    These earrings were elaborated following the Spanish Colonial filigree technique. The earrings depict a delicate ball made of intertwined handmade gimped threads of silver.
