Fiel Complementos (Daniela Gloger & Jimena Bravo) / ONA / Macarena Gaete


Do not be alarmed if you have a sudden urge to pet these rings and feed them apples. The colourful fibers are actually woven horsehair, a traditional Chilean craft. Returning to Chile after a seven-year stint in Barcelona, designer Daniela Gloger decided to reconnect with her cultural roots and, along with Jimena Bravo, started creating jewellery as Fiel Complementos — a name chosen to reflect their fealty to their South American homeland.




Above, a few more horsehair rings from ONA, a gallery of Andean artisanal work.
