    Story & Highlights

    FOUNDER: Marina Hernandez

    TEAM: Founder & Jeweler

    LOCATION: Mexico City

    MATERIALS: Recycled silver from X-rays and photographic film

    The only thing that fascinates Curadox more than jewelry is Mother Nature, with her power, her strength, and her ever-inspiring forms. Mother Nature exhibits a unique generosity - one that is neither a strategy nor discourse, but a sole way of understanding life. To honor that generosity, it is deeply important to Curadox to never lose contact with the process, the materials, and to minimize their carbon footprint as they create.

    CuradoX works slowly and deliberately; each piece is made to order - Everything from their packaging to the jewelry itself is made from upcycled and recycled materials.
    The silver is extracted from X-rays and photographic film. This innovative process involves shredding the film, which is then bathed in a cyanide solution to separate the silver, followed by electrolysis for purification, achieving a near-perfect recovery rate of 99.9% silver.

    Forever inspired by those who came before her, Marina names each piece she creates after a woman she admires, hoping that in the owners hands, they will someday be part of their heritage and a homage to our own.
