Folk Art Meets Contemporary Jewelry
Founded in 2003 by Claudia Betanqort and Nano Pulgar, Walka Studio has been trailblazing in artisan jewelry-making for a decade. Incorporating uniquely Chilean noble materials like copper, crin (horse hair) and cow's horn, they have merged avant-garde design and craftsmanship for trendy accessories beloved by many hip Chilenas (and appearing on local runways). They also have a jewelry-making school for students wanting to learn their craft.
