MEET THE MAKERS
From the Mopa-Mopa plant, the resin that is sold in the Mocoa region of the Putumayo department in southern Colombia is extracted and transported to Pasto, where the Master Craftsmen begin the process of decorating the jewelry pieces. Each piece of jewelry decorated with the Mopa-Mopa resin has been previously designed in our jewelry workshop in Bogotá with minute details, fully realizing the silver and metal parts that will be joined with the parts decorated with resin, so that everything together is assembled according to the final piece..Explore
