A few words about my jewelry

I started making jewelry in the early 80’s with artist Marcio Mattar in Brazil. Moved to NYC in the mid 80’s and got a job working for Robert Lee Morris in his then SOHO shop. Today I live in California and after a brief (actually very long) intermission, I'm back making jewelry and it was the best decision I've ever made.

I enjoy making jewelry and joy is my fuel. Jewelry can be empowering and not just a "vanity thing" in my view. When I create a piece I’m doing so with someone in mind; I just don't know them. One day the two will meet.

When you see a piece of jewelry and there is an emotion attached to it, the piece was made for you. There is a certain energy that happens. It is almost like the jewelry finds his or her owner.

I like to work with a variety of materials like silver, gold, iron, leather and stones. It is important to me that my jewelry complement a person’s true identity. My work is always changing and never finished. I'm just getting started.

I love to carve wax models the old fashion way. I use the computer to create a few of my models but I prefer to carve by hand. Computers tend to be so boring and tedious. And I also think that when you carve by hand, there is a magic of creation that happens, and that doesn't quite exist with computer modeling.

Number nine is my lucky number. Many important events in my life are associated with the number nine. Amulets are items people used for protection and they mean something special to them. I like to think of my jewelry in this way. Hence the name NineAmulets.



I spend hours and hours in my studio and I don't feel the time, I just crank up the music and work. Looking out the window I see the beautiful California nature and I feel lucky.

    A reliable companion and hard at work doing what he does best (sleeping right next to the heater, is one thing he does best). Occasionally goes outside and barks, but comes back, specially if treats are involved.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

The best way to determine your ring size is to have a professional jewelry store or other to obtain your right size with a ring sizer. Remember there are several units of measurement. The ones I use are the US standard sizes
