NATALIA GOMENSORO created Metalnat, her jewelry design brand, in 1994 in Uruguay after hearing herself say "I can't find any jewelry that I'd like to wear". She went from that first phrase to her first ring in a very short time. She learned the silversmith technique from several Latin American masters, and added her design and architecture background to forge unique pieces that were quickly in high demand. A few years, awards and shows later Gomensoro lives and works in New York City.
Gomensoro’s educational background in architecture is reflected in her jewelry, which is characterized by a keen understanding of spatial relationships. The artist seems to consider everyday objects and experiences with an inquiring and reflective mind. When you see her jewelry, you realize that her observations open a door to a whole new world of possibilities. She is drawn to the concept of movement…
