How I got passionate about jewelry design

I've always loved art since I was little. I studied fine arts and became a graphic designer which I practiced for more than 15 years.
One day when I was out shopping, I saw a necklace I really liked, and thought this looks like something I could make. I then started designing my own pieces. I wanted to learn more, so I decided to take some jewelry courses as well as silver smithing. This led me to a whole new passion. I was in love with antique ethnic jewelry, so I decided to take some time off and go visit the places where these jewels were created like Thailand and Morocco.
After such an inspiring trip I decided that I wanted to create my own jewelry line with materials from Ecuador, the country I grew up in. I then started using natural materials like hand woven fibers, seeds, stones and shells.

    I grew up in Ecuador surrounded by a vivid culture and art. I've always been an artist and designer. The texture and color of natural stones, shells, seeds and woven fibers are what inspire me to create my jewelry designs.
