Soledad Arte Joyero

Soledad y Arte Joyero is the workshop of independent Chilean artisan Soledad Borel, who empowers women through beautifully-designed, Costa Rican inspired handmade jewellery.

Enchanted by jewellery from a very young age, Soledad’s passion was further ignited while living in Africa, where the local handmade jewellery inspired her to purchase local gems to create her own necklaces. From 1990 onwards, she started to take courses in the rudiments of metallurgy and basic jewellery making techniques, continuing to more advanced processes, such as mokumé and acid etching.

At Soledad Arte Joyero, we produce earrings, rings, charm necklaces, and bracelets made entirely by hand. All our creations are one-of-a-kind, adorned with high-quality metals such as silver and semi-precious stones.

ITC project

Central America - Women and E-Commerce

The project, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC) in collaboration with the Secretariat for Central American Economic Integration (SIECA) and national implementing partners, supports 200 women-led businesses from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama to export their handicrafts through e-commerce channels. Alongside work to improve product quality and design, the women-led businesses are trained and prepared to list on international online marketplaces such as Etsy and eBay, develop and optimize their own websites, use different digital marketing channels to generate traffic and sales, receive online payments, prepare orders for shipment and provide quality customer service.
