NEW! Plumeria Earrings by Oropopo

Dark Copper

Plumeria is a tradition of artisanal feather-work that evolved from craft work in early Mesoamerica to an elaborate style in the 17th century during the Spanish Colonial period. The association of feathers with flight and spirit made it a natural bridge between Indigenous and Catholic iconography. The hybrid designs spread back to the Old World, the royal courts, and was used in trade, reaching as far away as China and Mozambique.
