A plastic bag is the icon of our 50 years of disposable culture. It is fragile and ethereal, but at the same time, resistant and durable. I like to work with it because of its meaning and apparent insignificance. I convert it into a portable object to remind me of the nonsense, the comfort and immediacy of our societies and my own life.
I am a designer from the Catholic University of Santiago de Chile. After having worked as a designer and photographer, I decided to go further into my design studies learning about jewelry in Spain. Since then I have my wokshop, and jewelry became my way of living.
In the last 6 years I have been attracted to Contemporary Jewelry. I am a member of Joya Brava and I have done workshops with Sharon Kransen, Ruudt Peters, Jorge Manilla and Jorge Castañon. Their visions of jewelry have brought me closer to a concept distinct from the one I was used to, where emotion and experimentation are the pillars that forge the work. I have been discovering freer and more authentic forms of expression in my creations.
I love making objects that will be carried by others and that will accompany them in their daily lives, generating a channel of communication through them.
I have participated in exhibitions in Chile, Spain, Germany, Poland, United States. In 2016 I was selected artist for Joya Barcelona and in 2018 I was the winner of Mydaybyday promotionship.
