This year, 2018, D’Argenta Studio was born with the aim of exploring new ideas and markets, and to get closer to the world of design. Thanks to all the expertise of our artisans, whom together with designers and artists from all over the world, transform our experience into world-renowned unique elegant pieces.
Artists & Designers
In D’Argenta we collaborate with Sima Abraham, founder of the company, Pedro Ramírez Vázquez, Ricardo del Río, Eduardo Buenrostro, Martín Mendoza, Javier Arenas, Claudio Rodríguez, Oshra, Federico Cardona, Manuel Alvarado, and Enrique Jolly among others.
Our best collections have emerged from their hands, ranging from the most beautiful animals to the surreal world of Salvador Dalí and Frida Kahlo.
For centuries, the art of sculpting in precious metals involved the process of traditional high-temperature melting. D’Argenta developed a technological improvement in hand with our artisans, who innovated the method.
Through a combination of melting at high temperatures and electroforming, sculptures are initially covered with a copper layer .015mm thick, then they are silver or gold plated (24K) 0.001mm thick (24 microns). Inside, they are made up of a polyester core and fiberglass to reinforce the metal cover. Lastly, all pieces are protected with a high-resistant lacquer to avoid tarnishing.
