Frida’s Kahlo Earrings.
- Paper, glass
- Metal back plated base
Alejandra learned to make Frida Kahlo Earrings because she has always loved making things with her hands, and she perfected her jewellery making skills in Singapore where she lived for a time under the tuition of a local teacher.
Alejandra is the owner and creator of Kelkay Jewellery. Originally from Chile, “I love making jewellery; It makes me happy, making others happy”. Kelkay is the indigenous Chilean word for Necklace. Alejandra’s eclectic designs are also inspired by the traditional jewellery from Chile and Latin America and Frida Kahlo is a particular inspiration. The materials she uses include: aluminium, copper; lapis lazuli; recycled plastic materials like coffee cups; cardboard and rubber inner tube from bicycles.
After arriving in Australia, Alejandra wanted to find a way to promote her jewellery. Through becoming involved in SisterWorks she was able to learn about the Australian market, become familiar with the local customers, and to establish her own business:“I’m happy with the opportunities SisterWorks give to me for improving my business and my live”.
