Maritza Kath's Profile
As a professionally trained designer keeping with my cultural traditions of my native Spanish-Andean Muisca and Taino Tribal heritage, I am continuing my family's legacy of over three generations of craftsman jewelers.
By choosing a different artistic approach from my family, I use fine gemstones from the Americas to the Far East, creating my exotic, Western-style unique pieces Native and Mexican pieces.
Growing up as a Mestiza, Taino tribe (almost extinct), Spaniard and Muisca. I always wanted to 'blend', so I turned my back on anything remotely folkloric, tribal, ethnic, or 'different' that would make me stand out. Basically, I walked away from my true artistic tribal roots and followed what everyone else was doing. Burying, and trying to forget it all, I finally realized that I was not being true…
