Santavanitas Phoenix’s Tears 18kt Gold-plated Bracelet
Santavanitas, from Spanish designer Pilar Cano Romero, is an intensely story-driven labor of love, with each piece uniquely representing and commentating on a keen observation of our lives and humanity.
From the chain of the Phoenix's Tears Bracelet hangs a charm depicting a Phoenix being reborn from its ashes. The Phoenix is one of the most ancient figures of mythology, and has analogues in many different cultures. The Phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor andsymbolises rebirth and resurrection. As a powerful spiritual totem, the Phoenix is the ultimate symbol of strength and renewal.
Mixing past and future, every piece is designed from the latest 3D techniques and crafted by local artisans through the old process of lost wax casting. The process is slow and the productions are small, but always responsible, sustainable and human. Pilar wanted to create a brand that is rooted in a purpose beyond aesthetics, contemporary heirlooms that make the wearer feel empowered, protected, stronger. Masculine and feminine, both are always present in Pilar’s personal aesthetics, for her there are no divisions.
