The craftsman behind these one-of-a-kind items is Marlon Obando Solano. Marlon was born in rural San Lorenzo, Nicaragua. He spent his formative years exploring the surrounding forests and mountains, learning about seeds, nuts and different types of wood.
His artistic process begins by collecting seeds and fallen wood from the forest floor. He then dries, cleans and cures his materials before carving, sanding and inlaying them to create his unique necklaces, earrings and rings. Marlon's work reflects his cultural heritage and nature and he is always experimenting with new design elments and innovative uses of natural materials.
