The Andean symbolism and details of the keychain are made from a bronze plate by local jewelers @killarijoyasdeautor, through the technique of carving and chiseling that allows us to obtain the figures in low relief. This is achieved with special chisels specifically for this purpose. Then the piece is placed in a patina, which consists of introducing the piece into a sulfur solution, blackening it. Then it is polished to obtain some darker parts and others with more shine, giving an aged effect to highlight the final work.
