About the Technique

The journey of these exquisite pieces begins with the discovery of raw quartz, meticulously sourced by skilled miners from the regions of Queretaro, Guanajuato, Sonora, and Veracruz. This raw quartz is then entrusted to the seasoned craftsmanship of Don Crecencio, a revered lapidarist with over four decades of experience. Collaborating with Tita for a decade, his expertise and profound understanding of quartz have been passed down to his nephews, who work alongside him.

For this collection, an additional skilled artisan uses a traditional method that has been passed down for generations: martillado. This technique requires the artisan to use hammers of different shapes, sizes, and weights, depending on the alloy, the object's size, or the work phase. In addition, stone chisels are used to outline and adorn the object's final shape. This creates the casing in which the heart will go into.

After undergoing meticulous work, each piece is lovingly cleansed and prepared for delivery. This journey is imbued with reverence, love, and an abundance of knowledge and skill.

Tita López is a multifaceted artist who dedicates her time to art and jewelry design. Inspiration to create each piece is born from her paintings and art pieces intertwined in singular harmony. Tita uses the natural forms of quartz, a pure element of nature; each piece is hand carved through artisanal ways dating back to pre-Columbian times, considering that they are unique pieces with all their qualities intact. The objective is to maximize the artisanal method using local products such as quartz and silver and combine it with designs inspired by the mysticism of Mexican culture, fusing tradition and art.
