Welcome to our contemporary jewelry, where inspiration intertwines with themes of gender, ritual, and diversity. Our artistic contemporary jewelry endeavors to transmute materials into transformative art pieces, much like alchemists of old. Each piece is crafted to enrich your daily experiences, infusing them with meaning and beauty.

Drawing from our rich Mexican heritage, our contemporary jewelry collections are imbued with a unique dialogue that spans geographies, identities, religions, and philosophies. We believe in the interconnectedness of all beings, envisioning each individual as a vital thread within the intricate tapestry of existence—a precious jewel in the cosmic net.

From Founder
Once I read “Avalokitesvara, the bodhisattva of great compassion uses innumerable hands and eyes in order to help beings. This innumerable refers to Indra’s net, in which all beings are connected. In this sense here each and every being, is a knot in the thread of the net, is one of the hands and eyes of Avalokitesvara. The totality of interconnectedness where all beings and things permeate each other completely"

Our history
Art and fashion: jewels of ritual and identity

Art and fashion: jewels of ritual and identity

XANAN is a jewelry born in 2016 in Argentina. Created by Ixchel Ledesma, the jewelry initially sought to work with designers and photographers from Buenos Aires such as: Nati Petri and Alberto Romano. Its production inspired the first XANAN designs that were exported to Montreal and Mexico.

Later, the contemporary jewelry was based in Mexico City and focus was placed on the production of artisan jewelry, learning techniques from the artisan master Rogelio de La Fuente. The pieces at this time took an artisan importance, valuing the processes made 100% by hand.

Currently the jewelry is based in Galicia, Spain and the designs combined artisan process with contemporary designs nourished by local artists such as: Adataberna, Pelucas Pilas Bubbles, Kifi, Peri Helio among others. 

XANAN is now working in designs which can combine antique techniques with contemporary art inspired in ritual, gender equality our Mexican roots and human transformation .

100% Handmade

We do not want our jewels nor our relationships to be ephemeral that is why we build a strong dialogue, in order to create pieces that are handmade with love.

Sustainability

Fast fashion has created overconsumption and expectations. Causing harmful consequences to our planet. So we reuse and give new life what is supposed to be no longer needed.

Ethics

We are very inspired by many religions and philosophies specially Buddhism. Xanan thinks that we are the judges of our action. It is in these terms that an act or a series of acts is deemed ethical or unethical. We try to follow this guideline in all of our work.
