Made of luxurious crocodile skin.
Every handbag by Dayan Candamil includes her signature touch that makes it a one-of-a-
kind work of art – an exquisitely designed piece of jewelry. Made of 970 sterling silver, this
filigree adornment is handcrafted by artisans in the small, remote Colombian village of
Mompox, seven hours from Cartagena, the nearest city.
For centuries the Mompox villagers have created these delicate designs of miniature
proportions. Their knowledge of ancient filigree weaving techniques has been passed along
from generation to generation.
The jewelers’ work is slow and refined. Using only rudimentary tools, they stretch, twist,
flatten and finally interweave fine sterling threads of different thickness into endless circles.
The result is an intricate design of superb quality and timeless beauty.
Every filigree piece is unique, requiring intense attention to
detail and two to three weeks to be produced.
Proud of her Colombian heritage, Dayan Candamil is pleased to include the elegance of
filigree fine jewelry in her handbag creations and to share this legendary artisan craft with

The best way to care for an exotic leather accessory is to simply keep it clean and dry. Do NOT (DO NOT) Use cleaning or conditioning products designed for cow leather; such products will damage most exotic leathers. Ideally, you should clean your alligator, crocodile or other exotic leather accessory every few months with a clean damp cloth or with a cleaner specifically intended for such exotic leathers. After a cleaning, it is very important to condition the leather to replace the lost emollients and moisturize and reseal the leather. A great natural product to condition, moisturize and reseal exotic leather beeswax. A light coating of extra fine beeswax gently rubbed into the leather and then lightly buffed off, is all that is required to preserve and protect the skim. Some of these beeswax products may include carbon wax. Several sellers on eBay offer such products, or you can search google for ‘’ beeswax leather care’’ reptile skins are fundamentally different and more complex than cow leather, in that a reptile scales are held together with membranes. While the scales are relatively rigid and armor-like it is membranes that allow for flexibility. It is important to properly moisturize and re seal these membranes with proper care your exotic leather can remain flexible and look great for a decade or more.
Note: It is strongly recommended that you test any cleaning or conditioning product on a small inconspicuous area to test for discoloration, before you proceed in using the product.
