What Came Before Jewelry

Madrid born, Brooklyn based. Former potter and overall maker. Currently learning geology and lapidary arts one piece of jewelry at a time.

My main interest in all creative mediums has always been to create pieces that will add meaning to our daily rituals, so in 2014, I settled on jewelry as the perfect outlet. But not after dabbing in a number of creative mediums such as ceramics, marbling and leather, all ways to channel my love for color, simplicity and craftsmanship.

 

 

 

The broad range of techniques and materials used in the world of jewelry and my respect and interest for ancient world crafts were initially captivating, however the conceptual power of the idea of adornment, celebration and other symbolic meanings related to jewelry were what has kept me interested and inspired for the last few years.

The jewelry journey started with my Third eye pieces, I have practiced taoist meditation since I was a teenager and wanted to create an eye ring to wear as a reminder to connect to myself and keep my third eye open. When other people became interested, true to form, it remained open to interpretation. For some it serves as an evil eye used for protection, just one of the many associations I feel lucky people have with it. Regardless of the specific nature, I am happy to provide people with a vessel in which they can pour their good vibes.

We cannot wait for you to see what we have been up to!
