Soledad ProañoSoledad Proaño is an artist + designer of jewelry, textiles and mosaics. Born in Chile, she lives and works in Pasadena, CA.
Starting from an early age Soledad had an instinct for making things, particularly felt and with beads. Going on to study engineering at a university in Chile, it was a course in color studies brought her back to this early passion for design and craft. Moving between the two for awhile (very left brain right brain here), it was meeting her husband and relocating to the US that gave her a chance to start something new. The line of jewelry , Sol del Sur, was started in 2009.
