De Polvo Y Viento is the work of twin sisters Ana María and María Fernanda Gavilán. Based in Costa Rica, they craft unique, enchanting pieces of jewellery, which evoke the spirit of nature & a feeling of shared heritage – “Nature is expressed in all deep feelings of men; upon contact with their emotions dead nature transforms into an immortal poetry. The spirit rises into dust but still lives with us in the most poetic way.”

Their first collection, Espíritu de la Tierra (Spirit of the Earth) is made up of fragments of bones, semiprecious stones & metals, each piece crafted & polished by hand. Heavily inspired by Goethe’s great tragedy ‘Faust‘, it is translated beautifully in the organic, natural shapes & the way the bones are treated so preciously, like treasures themselves. There is definitely a tribal feeling to these pieces, but the delicate shapes & polished metals make them feel incredibly modern too; raw, yet feminine. I think my favourites would be the tiny bone ear cuff, I love the way the curve of the bone follows the ear & the fishbone rings, which are hauntingly beautiful.

“Birth and the grave, A limitless ocean, A constant weaving, With change still rife, A restless heaving, A glowing life — hus time’s whirring loom unceasing I ply, And weave the life-garment of deity.” – ‘Faust’ by Goethe
