Tane will surprise with a collection that expresses, in its on voice, Tane’s oldest techniques and textures: the martelé, the indentations of hammer strokes.
So characteristic of the firm has the use of silver been in past times, this texturing was principally chosen as one for silverware, it now pertains to Tane’s new vision, creating a range of jewelry pieces so very different, yet current.
In keeping with Tane’s style of storytelling and transporting us to the memories of its collections, Tane finds inspiration to weave a story in the mystery of the Ixchel, the goddess of the moon, partner of the sun and divine creator in the ancient Maya culture.
Her power manifests in the tides, where the waters and liquid represent life itself. This collection, being moon, earth and water; represents a woman in her state of total purity.
An irregular texture formed out of the impact from each hammer gives life to, bracelets, necklaces, earrings & rings, all engrained with a wild, tribal & free spirit.
To realise their mystic and artisanal character, the pieces have multiple finishes, which contrast with their simple circular shape. Primitive rivets that capture an essence of the Maya culture are used to join the pieces themselves.
This is further highlighted in the impactful design of the small necklaces – mimicking the full moon in all its glory – definitively the overarching piece of the collection.
Ixchel is a compact collection with an intensely Mexican history, for an accomplished and spiritual woman striving for wholeness and living in the present.
