Alex De Haro's Profile

About

Hi my name is Alex. I was born and live in Barcelona,Spain.

I have always been fascinated by structures, spaces, nature and the essence of places and I realised at an early age that jewelry could be created to reflect almost all the forms that I could imagine at a relatively low material investment and with my own hands.

When I was 19 my sole focus was to travel, get to know exotic places and experience thrilling adventures. And this is when I started my trips first to Colombia and Brazil, and then China, Mongolia, Russia as well as other places in Europe. These trips became rites of passage to self knowledge, which led me to open my perspective of the world at both a human and spiritual level.

Hi my name is Alex. I was born and live in Barcelona,Spain.

I have always been fascinated by structures, spaces, nature and the essence of places and I realised at an early age that jewelry could be created to reflect almost all the forms that I could imagine at a relatively low material investment and with my own hands.

When I was 19 my sole focus was to travel, get to know exotic places and experience thrilling adventures. And this is when I started my trips first to Colombia and Brazil, and then China, Mongolia, Russia as well as other places in Europe. These trips became rites of passage to self knowledge, which led me to open my perspective of the world at both a human and spiritual level.

Architecture, sculpture, industrial design were all disciplines that I liked, but my travels and the fact that my parents are artisans -my father a silversmith, and my mother specialising in kiln glazed enamel works- provided me with direct contact with metals. All this created conditions that led me to the design and creation of jewelry as a way of life.

In 1993, at the age of 23 I initiated the family company Haro Bosch specialising in contemporary jewelry. In 2007, I went to live in Portugal and I founded the brand “Aro” in collaboration with the well known jewelry designer Cristina Costa. Two years later, I then returned to Barcelona and started my own company Alex de Haro. My work is sold all throughout Spain in the most important contemporary jewelry stores such as Hipótesis, Onajoya, Pajaro Azul, El Espiritu de la Esquina and Istra. Apart from Portugal and Spain pieces have also been commercialized in Japan. I have participated in collective and individual contemporary jewelry exhibitions, of which the latest took place in Barcelos (Portugal, 2008) and Amber Art (Barcelona, 2011).
