How I got passionate about jewelry design

I've always loved creating since I was very little. I was always drawing, painting, carving, or printing, anything that had to do with creativity. Eventually I went ahead and got my BA in Fine Arts and became a Graphic Artist/Art Director.
However, antique ethnic jewelry was one of my greatest fascinations. I was intrigued by the jewelry from Nepal, Thailand, and Morocco. So I decided to take time off and go visit these wonderful countries. I wanted to experience their art, culture and get to see their amazing jewelry designs.
After such an inspiring trip I decided that I wanted to create my own jewelry. I decided to create a collection that integrated natural materials from Ecuador (where I grew up) like hand woven fibers, seeds, and shells. I was also recently living in Arizona which is the place where you can find such amazing quartz, turquoise and other natural stones.
I design my jewelry like little sculptures. They are mini pieces of wearable art. A combination of natural stones enhanced with metals or hand woven pieces to create translucent earrings. I truly love designing and creating new designs with a variety of natural materials.

    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.
