Artisan: Maicon

Wire wrapped earrings and bracelets with blue, turquoise, green, purple and black stones

Maicon is a guy with a vision. When we met Maicon he was neatly dressed in a blue polo and khaki shorts (very non-baiano, actually). The 33-year-old artist started making jewelry when he was 17, and his years and years of experience are obvious in the pieces he makes.

Of all of the artisans we work with, his pieces are the most intricate — bending and weaving the wire together into arches or half moons and then hanging a Chapada Diamantina sourced gemstone stone from that arch or moon.
