LL, LLC is a jewelry line entirely handmade in Mexico on the historic William Spratling Ranch. He himself is credited as the "Father of Mexican Silver." As a matter of course, the jewelers executing Lia Lowenthal's designs are paid fairly, the conditions are sustainable (executed in shorter, workshop formats), and the product follows as being of exceptional quality.

So that's the process, next is material. Copper, silver, and tumbaga are some of the primary metals used. Likely you know the two former (clean your copper with a lemon/salt scrub), but tumbaga is more obscure. A pre-Columbian alloy comprised of gold and copper, it was believed to have sacred properties. Often mistaken for gold, it's easily cleaned with dish soap, warm water, and rubbing. 

And what of design? Starting with the spiral, Ms. Lowenthal takes its obvious spiritual symbolism (a kind of infinity), and does an end-run around "spiral methodology," which in factory terms is considered high-risk and combustible. In these small runs, made by hands with care, those are positives.
