By Mexican jewelry brand CuradoX by Marina Hernandez.
Handmade by Marina in her Mexico-based jewelry design studio from pure recycled silver extracted from used X-ray plates and photographic film with semi-precious stones. Each piece is unique and is shaped both by Marina’s hands and her early fascination with her ancestry - specifically the women in her life. Every stone is named after an important woman in her life:
Labradorite - The Martina
This ring set is inspired by Martina Duque. It is said that Labradorites teach us how to bring life-giving energy to all areas of our souls. Martina is the definition of determination and giving the energy to achieve what we want.
Moonstone - The Clara:
The Clara Ring is inspired by Clara Perez Andujar. Clara is a talented musician and engineer and has been a dear friend to me for over a decade. We met by chance of fate in a foreign country to me at a time when I was away from home. The stone I chose is delicate, transparent, bold, and feminine.
Green - The Agnes
The Agnes ring is inspired by Ines Moreno. This Green Jade is an amulet for good luck, just as Ines is to me, a talisman for welcoming abundance, and a stone of sublime peace and well-being, which is all anyone feels when she is around.
Turquoise - The Remedios
The Remedios Ring is inspired by Remedios Varo. My deep admiration for her goes way back in the history of my family. My grandfather had a very keen eye for art and met her in a gallery in Coyoacán. He immediately fell in love with her work and asked to buy a piece, yet all the pieces from the exhibition were sold. He ended up convincing her to create a piece for him given the fact that my grandmother was pregnant with my father and wanted to give it to her as a gift. She ended up delivering the Creation of The Birds, which is to date one of my favorite paintings ever. The stone I chose for this ring has a connection to the realm of dreams and my past.
Care: with a soft cloth clean your piece, do not use cleaning agents that may harm your pieces.
