The sculpture Elke delves into the symbolism of hands from a mystical and spiritual perspective, creating a new narrative using the most enigmatic part of the statue of "Cristo Redentor," one of Brazil's most iconic symbols, which is located in Rio.
Designed to function as an amulet, the sculptural hands come together, merging into a single body that gives the piece an aura of protection. Its sinuous lines and elegant curves contrast with an unexpected geometry that lends it strength.
The Elke sculpture celebrates the feminine entities that comprise the energy of Rio, integrating, protecting, and welcoming them.
The piece was named in honor of Elke Maravilha.

Important to note:
All 925 sterling silver jewelry with 18k gold plating requires special care and is subject to changes in its appearance. The gold plating is a thin layer with low adhesion to the 925 Sterling silver, so contact with various surfaces, exposure to chemicals found in creams and perfumes, and the pH of the skin itself act as a polish or react with this thin layer, gradually removing it and revealing the 925 Sterling silver underneath. When the gold plating wears off, it is possible to replate the piece or clean it to use it as 925 Sterling silver.
