Even Rose Love Design
Mendez hand fabricates botanical jewelry in copper, bronze, brass and sterling. Their work is a celebration of the beauty and resilience of nature. Many of the plants that inspire the work are among the most ancient life forms, such as ginkgo and ferns. The jewelry pieces are often boldly colorful, utilizing rich patinas or hand painted finishes. Every piece is hand drawn and hand-cut and finished with techniques that include chasing, stamping and repousse. They combine these handbuilt metal elements with semiprecious stone beads and cabochons culminating in an organic line and feel.
