Engagement rings – Tramuntana Skyline – Author: Carlos Tellechea

One of the emblematic jobs that give meaning to the trade, are the engagement rings…
The couple arrives at the Workshop and after chatting about their hobbies and tastes they tell me that they are mountaineers, mountain lovers, thinking about design, the boy suggests a Tramontana skyline from where they live, which is Campanet…

They sent me a photo of the Tramontana, just as they saw it from home, and off to work…

Everyone happy with the result
Thank you very much for the Trust and letting me participate in your commitment

Culture in Mallorcajoyería artesanal de autor

The Myotragus Balearicus is the only known domestic and extinct species in the world. The most recent testimonies of their presence in Mallorca date from 2030-170 BC.

The Myotragus Balearicus was a mammal, endemic to Mallorca.

It was discovered in 1909 by paleontologist Dorothea Bate. It is the largest mammal on the islands, similar to the gazelle, which belonged to the antelope group.

The name of Myotragus comes from the Greek and means “goat-rat”. It is estimated that this mammal arrived in Mallorca when the islands were still attached to the continental shelf, more than five million years ago.

Once the islands were separated from the mainland, their ancestors became isolated, found no major predators to threaten them, and evolved differently from those outside the islands, adapting perfectly to the insular habitat.

Both males and females had two small horns, fine and sharp, which, starting from the forehead, elongated towards the back.

The Myotragus Balearicus was rather small in size, about 50 centimeters tall and about 10-12 kilos in weight.

In the absence of other predators in his environment, his locomotor system adapted to running very little, his movements slowed down and he lost the ability to jump.

His ocular system underwent variations, the position of his eyes was frontal, he always looked forward, since in the absence of other competitors, he did not need to take precautions of possible dangers that could come from the sides.

All these morphological changes were negative for their evolution, since they facilitated their capture by man when he colonized the Balearic Islands.

The remains of this animal have been found next to human objects or bones, which shows that man lived with this animal and domesticated it, surely, extinct it from the islands to feed.

In May 2010 a group of paleontologists carried out a new and fruitful expedition in the Cova des Pas de Vallgornera (Llucmajor),in which the 65 kilometers surveyed have already been reached, discovering in an isolated gallery called «Tragus» the oldest preserved complete skeleton of Myotragus, about two million years old, belonging to a missing link in the evolutionary chain of the «goat -rata» between Myotragus antiquus and Myotragus kopperi.

Eva Terrades Joyeria Textil ARTEARATESANIA





Contemporary jewelry is genderless.

Contemporary Jewelry accepts experimentation with all kinds of materials.

Contemporary Jewelry understands the Jewel as a means of plastic Expression.

Contemporary Textile Jewelry

Fabrics, seams, pieces of fabric, embroidery, wefts with different threads, fabrics with different techniques, are the materials with which Eva Terrades makes her delicate pieces.

It is a pleasure to present the next exhibition in the small room of ARTEARTESANIA.

Eva Terrades Pellicer is Majorcan and in her range of life experiences, she treasures during 6 months in India working as a volunteer for the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, with women with high degrees of disability, an experience that marked her life…

to almost the other extreme, becoming passionate about the world of fashion, and arriving in New York, working for years with the designer Miguel Adrover, for example…

But it happens that she returns to Mallorca and changes her state, stops traveling, becomes a mother,

she decides to go down to the calm of the embroidery and germinates there the seed of the work that we will see.

Creativity and Reuse:

Another very important point of Eva Terrades’ Work is that she reuses pieces of different fabrics, many of them are old Majorcan fabrics, which give her work a subtle and authentic local character.

The fabrics keep the emotion, the smells.

The clients of the Contemporary Jewelry Galleries, for the most part, are not specialists or collectors, they are simply sensitive people who are attracted by certain pieces that they want to wear, without further pretensions…

However, a very attractive aspect of contemporary jewelry is its closeness to the body.

Among the postulates of Contemporary Jewelry we find, in addition to the Jewel transformed into a means of plastic expression, the very body that carries the Jewel, can be understood as the exhibition space of the work…

The complicity of the wearer has always been essential when framing the creation of the Jeweler.

These types of pieces are displayed and worn differently.

They come to acquire prominence and set trends…

Comments from Alla, the model of the Pieces.

  • Speaking of how special Eva’s work is, it is impossible not to mention one of its greatest benefits: weight. The pieces are so light and soft that while you have it on you almost do not notice anything else apart from the attention that the pieces attract.
  • And then, packing for a weekend getaway trip, you just put it in your jumper and that’s it, no extra weight or space… Isn’t that great?



ARTEARTESANIA RE-opens the Small Room to Exhibitions of “Contemporary Jewelry” or “Art in small format”

The idea with the exhibitions is to enable Artisans/Contemporary Artists to show their work, through an Exhibition in Sóller.


DORA GOOD (intervention of the Small Room year 2007)

Inauguration of the ALBERTO MIGUEL Exhibition

arteartesania Escultura 5 - Alberto Miguel


2017 – BORIS JAKOV – Exhibition of silver pieces cast in Cuttlefish

Questions about the format and conditions.

This exhibition occurs through a collaboration whose costs are assumed by ARTEARTESANIA (Space rental, attention during the Expo, light, posters, etc.) and that the Exhibitor shares by donating at the end of the Expo, a Piece (of an estimated value of PVP €300.00) which becomes the Gallery’s Artwork Fund.

These Exhibitions are a way to “introduce” the artisans who will be part of the ArteArtesania staff. (as happened with Ramon Puig, Silvia Walz, Judy Mc Caig, Yukiko Kitahara, etc)

At the end of the Expo we would like to have a sample of your pieces that were exhibited, so that they have their space and market them during the season (some of them will also be for sale during the Expo in the online shop on the website, at At first, the pieces that remain after the Expo will go to the web shop)

How many days does an exhibition last?

The Exhibitions last 2 or 3 weeks (to be agreed with each Artist)

There are three days prior to Assembly and 1 day after to disassemble

At least one month in advance, we require photographs and texts, curriculum, etc. of the Artist/Craftsman that allow us to prepare a presentation of the expo, as well as the name of the exhibition if it is specific to the occasion, with technical characteristics of the work, as well as other information that serves as an introduction to the exhibited work

What is the % of the sale, which remains the Gallery?

Here then there are two parts.

The first While the Expo lasts and for all the exhibited pieces, the Gallery keeps 33% of the PVP, (without VAT), that is, in cash sales, there are two parts for the Artist, one part for the Gallery, Yes the customer wants an Invoice or pays by card, we increase the 21% VAT, which is collected and kept by the store to pay later.

The second, Once the exhibition is over and the pieces go to the Store (the group of pieces that we agree on can be on consignment this season), they are left in equal conditions as the rest of the suppliers, on the cost price, it is recharged 50% plus VAT

Is there an “Opening”? Does the gallery pay these expenses?

If we open on a Friday there are two and a half hours from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. of vernissage and then from 10:30 p.m. the inauguration usually continues with a celebration in the courtyard / Workshop with live music (some group of local musicians ) and from 10:30 p.m., there is a small bar with drinks…

If the Exhibitor has a preference for some type of Opening in particular, we can agree on it…

Is there a promotional poster? The cost is borne by the gallery?

If posters and postcards are made to leave in hotels, the cost of which is assumed by ARTEARTESANIA

How is the return of what has not been sold?

At the end of the Expo, if the Exhibitor does not reside in Mallorca and cannot collect the pieces, we can agree to send those that have neither been sold nor remain in the Gallery, by transport agency.


Stories of a Chameleon


Carlos Tellechea Stories of a chameleon | Art in Arteartesania

For me the Chameleon means something like:

“Non-violent adaptation”

At one point when I was between Cercedilla and Segovia, in my early years in Spain, leaving aside the production of costume jewelery, which I did to sell in markets, I decided to make a small sculpture of a chameleon, with a hollow body, welding bronze cuts … .

Some time later I asked the “Loqui” (my founder of those times) to melt the original and thus I had the first 10 cast bronze chameleons …

And so, once the bronze chameleon was created, I built a landscape of metal cutouts for it as well, and this one, within the world of feminine ornamentation, which was my trade.

And the first Piece that was put together was a Choker. Then a bracelet that were run by the little chameleon

Understanding as Roberto Bolaño that contests can be an alternative to stick his head out for a craftsman from the provinces, I decided to present the Pieces to the Castilla y León Craft Design Contest

The Work was a Regional Prize. In a way, the chameleon remained, as a resource, as a talisman and finally as a characteristic signature of my works. Every year he cast about twenty pieces and made completely different series, Jewels, small desk sculptures, objects for personal use and other decorative items such as the bowls that appear in the photo above.

The chameleon transforms the piece in which it appears in a small story, the aesthetic is added to the narrative.

General information about Chameleons
Chameleons are a family, Chamaeleonidae, of small scaly sauropsids (reptiles). There are about 161 species of chameleons, most of them in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The term “chameleon” derives from the Latin chamaeleo, a loan from the Greek χαμαιλέων (khamailéōn), in turn composed of χαμαί (khamaí) “on land” and λέων (léōn) “lion”. The Greek word is a carbon copy of the Akkadian nēš qaqqari, “land lion.”
Some species of chameleon are capable of changing color, which is their most famous characteristic.
Contrary to what some believe, they are not colorless, nor do they change color only according to the environment; in reality, the change in its basic color more often expresses a physiological condition (related to temperature or the time of day) or a psychological condition (caused by the proximity of an eventual adversary or partner).
The color change also plays an important role in communication during chameleon fights: the colors indicate whether the opponent is scared or furious. Colors can vary from reddish to greenish.
Chameleons have specialized pigment cells in various layers of the dermis, under their transparent outer epidermis. The cells in the upper layer, called chromatophores, contain yellow and red pigments. Below that of the chromatophores is another layer whose pigment cells, the guanophores, contain a colorless crystalline substance, guanine. The guanophores reflect, among other things, the blue color of the incident light. When the upper layer with its chromatophores determines a yellow color, the blue light reflected by the guanophores is stained green (blue + yellow). Even lower down is a layer rich in melanophores, loaded with the dark pigment eumelanin that also stains human skin. These melanophores regulate brightness, that is, the amount of reflected light. All these pigment cells can regulate the distribution of the pigments they contain, expanding or contracting it, which in turn gives rise to the differences in brightness, hue and pattern that distinguish chameleons.
Throughout the West, the term “chameleon” is used in colloquial language as a synonym for a fickle person, who adapts his behavior and characteristics to circumstances. The term does not always have a negative connotation (of falsehood), and can also mean “flexibility”. It is also quite used to adjective good actors



Paco Colombas Xavier Marin in the Cave of ARTEARTESANIA

Great night of Jam with Jiva, Paul and Ned



The Cave of ARTEARTESANIA emerged about 12/13 years ago spontaneously as a meeting place and creativity for the musicians of the Soller Valley from spontaneous jams after the “presentation” of the last group that tried their new songs in small format and for friends.
LA CUEVA has been operating in a self-managed and free way … and as a complementary event to the Openings in Exhibitions

But in recent years it has become a benchmark as a cultural space for many musicians who propose encounters in which to test and confront musical ideas.

It is within the framework of these inaugurations that the “nights of music in the Cave” arise, there were musicians who temporarily rehearsed there and we all understood that presenting live music coinciding with an Art inauguration was something complementary and that as it happened they would feed back ..

This enriching activity of the exchange of musicians who got to play without a score or guaranteed training, ended up being an authentic laboratory of creative musical ideas for dozens of instrumentalists from the town and from many other places that participated in these usually spontaneous jams.

Carlos Tellechea is an Autonomous Balearic Artisan Master, his Company also has the DQA Consideration (Artisan Qualification Companies) that in Soller for example, have this Qualification “Can Matarino” or “Fet a Soller”

He came to Soller 20 years ago and has all those years contributed to Social Security, working as a Craftsman and Gallery owner.

His small business has generated sustainable activity and employment in the Valley, collaborating with local artisans, years working for example with Bernat Forteza or Llucía Magraner (joiers solleriks)
He has represented in National and International Fairs and Exhibitions the name of Mallorca and Soller, where in some cases, such as in the Feria Mercado de Artesanías de Sevilla, he has received awards for the best work.

On Calle de la Luna from the beginning he began to collaborate with other Artisans from Mallorca and Menorca and carried out monographic exhibitions bringing Soller to Exposure to different Mallorcan jewelers … Damiá Mulet, Quico Tent, Tasso Mattar, Pep Joan, Boris Jakov and Menorcans such as Santi Capó or Xavier Monclús, later also relevant in the world of Contemporary Jewelry, such as the teachers of the Massana Ramon Puig Cuyas School, Silvia Walz, Judy Mc Caig, and a long etc.

La Cueva was a “Bonus Track” to his ARTEARTESANIA Project, which was far from being planned.


Collection “CHUMBERAS” by Carlos Tellechea

The prickly pear cactuses have been the inspiration for the production of this collection.

Chumbera – the traditional cactus, belonging to the cactus family. It is a shrubby plant of the opuntia genus, with more than 300 varieties.

This collection is made of brass / bronze with patina application.

Patina is the layer of copper salts that is generated on the surface of said metal after the process of its spontaneous corrosion.

Bronze and copper slowly degrade, combining again with elements from the environment to return to their natural state. The result, over time, will be a layer of copper salts on the surface of the metal, called a “patina.”

Artificial patinas are applied to copper or bronze using chemical solutions that react with the surface when applied to fire, to form a thin layer of color that also protects the surface.

Patination has been used as a decoration technique on metals by many different cultures for thousands of years.

New TALABAR collection at ArteArtesanía

Talabar is a family business located in Seville that manufactures leather objects (such as bags, backpacks, wallets, glasses cases, belts, …).

They work with leather in a traditional way, painting, embossing and stamping the articles creating reliefs and textures.

All the pieces are made by hand and one by one they go through different manufacturing processes.

We are very happy to announce that the new summer collection 2021 has arrived.
Enjoy some striking colors under the sun!

BVIEL Barbara Viel – New artist in ArteArtesanía

Bviel is a timeless jewelry brand on flattened papers with an enamel effect. They have a light and delicate shape. The items are made by the designer Barbara Viel.
All models are mounted in brass dipped in a silver bath for a brushed silver finish, made in France.

According to Barbara, her idea of ​​working with paper stems from the desire to combine graphics, colors and paper in a light way. Paper is a sustainable, recyclable, strong and durable material while surprisingly light.

The pieces of paper are flattened with an organic plastic and are accompanied by ribbons, threads, semi-precious pearls. The result is a timeless jewel with an enamel effect, reversible for necklaces and bracelets, made in small batches in brass or 925 silver. Each piece has a different pattern on each side and is engraved with the BVIEL logo.
