About my process:

I make all porcelain components by hand- using my own molds, shaping, embossing, stamping, and sculpting.

After drying, each piece is kiln fired. I use commercially made glazes, lead free and even food safe. With the exception of post earrings and brooches, everything is glazed front and back. Glazed with three or more coats, the pieces are then ready for their final firing.

After they're finished and glossy, each piece is then carefully assembled, embellished, and ready for its photo shoot!

A recovering perfectionist, I've learned to love the handmade process. Every piece is slightly different, with its own character and quirks, making each one wonderfully unique.

About me:

I'm originally from Mexico City, lived in and around Chicago for 30 years, and now reside in Portland, OR. I've been making jewelry and accessories out of porcelain, gemstones, pearls, vintage and new glass beads, and textiles since 2002. I studied fashion design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Columbia College Chicago.
