Jewelry Brand

In 2016, sisters Laura and Ana María Maya Silva combined their knowledge as a jewelry designer and industrial designer respectively to create VATTEA, their own jewelry brand based in Medellín, Colombia. A unique blend of bronze and cotton thread is the main feature of their signature designs, which result in high-quality artisanal jewelry.

At VATTEA, they carefully handcraft each piece and are constantly experimenting with new materials and techniques. The sisters draw on ancient cultures and their conceptual representation through objects and symbols as their main sources of inspiration. Their jewelry has been featured in magazines including Vogue Latinoamerica, Caras Colombia, Carrusel, and Aló.
