Alexandra Agudelo's silver pieces are inspired by the artisan traditions and tropical nature of the Pacific and Caribbean regions of Colombia.

Her pieces are characterized by the dichotomy between the rigidity and the malleability of the silver with which she works. Agudelo’s work transcends the stereotypical silversmith work in Latin America, which is historically linked to Spanish colonial finishes and Neo-Baroque influences present in the Republican period.

Agudelo creates an ideal harmony in her work through the interplay of the perfection of her handcrafted silversmith work and the imperfection inspired by Colombian nature represented by irregular borders, shines, shadows, and textures of each piece.

Each piece is unique and as such, conveys different emotions and sensations; some objects appear delicate or malleable, when others look solid and rigid. Agudelo says of her work, “I experiment with many textures and colors. From shine which represents innocence to bright red colors that symbolize the process of silver being exposed to fire.”
