”Mitos” is the Spanish word for “Myths” – an important notion with the South American Indians who spiritualized nature around them. To them, gold was the sweat of the sun and silver the tears of the moon. You will recognize the same fascination with nature and respect for its raw materials in Miryam Stenderup’s jewellery design, which elegantly expresses her Columbian background in a refined, light Scandinavian style.
Materials The materials too come from nature: gemstones, gold and silver selected to uncompromising standards by Miryam, who also shapes each individual piece herself, adding a very personal touch to the jewellery.
