The Craftsmanship Behind Each Piece of Kuu Jewelry

By Valeria Amaral

Kuu works alongside of Wixárika artisans to produce each piece of jewelry. The manifestation of the vision in the Wixaritari becomes tangible in the traditional pieces that they produce; it is more of a way of life than an activity. It is the inner light that they recognize that allows them to contemplate and later realize.

Kuu is a company dedicated to creating luxury handcrafted Wixárika jewelry. We do so by providing the artisans with quality raw materials, which are faceted crystal beads that are plated in 24k gold, silver and platinum. Our pieces represent the pinnacle of Wixárika art. Thanks to the quality of our raw materials, we alongside the artisans have managed to merge an ancient tradition, in contemporary pieces that enhance one of the purest cultures in Mexico. Valuing and respecting the work of our artisans, reflects our respect for our country and our roots. Our products enhance, promote and preserve a Wixárika tradition.

Most artisans are taught how to hand weave jewelry from a very young age as part of their culture. This development of creativity is connected to their beliefs and unites their communities. They have been doing so for centuries and their traditions have helped formed Mexican culture in many ways.
