Welcome to ArtesanosByCynthia  


Artesanos is a Mexican word meaning 'handmade'. As the name 'ArtesanosByCynthia' already presumes, here you can find handmade products crafted by Cynthia.

Already as a little child, handcrafting was my favorite waste of time. Over the years, it became a passion that grew bigger and bigger. At this point in life, no longer to be considered as a hobby. Therefor ArtesanosByCynthia came to life, this way I would like to bring my work to the attention of those who are interested.

My interest for other cultures, in particular the African with its diversity of tribes and the Native American culture is clearly shown in my workpieces. Inspiration and knowledge are gained during journeys across countries such as Canada, Alaska and South Africa. Not only by visiting museums, but also through observing local people performing their skills. Either watching local artists carving a totempole or me sculpturing together with Xhosa people in South Africa, all experience is embraced.

But not only different cultures are a source of inspiration. Also music and events of everyday life are of great influence.

The result of this all, can be found here on the website of ArtesanosByCynthia. Such as: exclusive handmade silver jewellery, masks and sculptures of clay or wood and Indian paintings on wood or leather. Some workpieces have an underlying meaning, which are summarized.

Aside from workpieces shown on the website, it is also possible to have something designed and manufactured according to your personal wishes.
