Jewels as objects that one day will be archaeological remains of current material culture

I'm Venezuelan. Seventeen years ago I moved to Buenos Aires (Argentina), my first daughter was born and I started my Contemporary Jewelry Brand, all at the same time.
My methodology for designing comes from bioarchaeology, since this was my first professional training, my materials, and my color palette refers to the Caribbean, the place where I grew up.
Architecture, abstraction, and synthesis are part of my language. I remove everything unnecessary from the piece, leaving only the mínimum needed to open a dialogue. When I get these objects -my pieces- materialized, I imagine myself extremely small, walking into these objects as if it were an architectural space, a world made of colors and shapes... the world as I see it.

I am concerned about sustainability, so I think, design and elaborate lasting products from their materiality (quality) and from their aesthetics (independence of fashion and trends), with the aim of extending their useful life to the maximum.
From the productive processes, I look up to the optimization of the raw material, reducing waste, and taking care of the leftovers for reuse in the elaboration of unique pieces. This is where my archaeologist background takes place... I find remains, discarded fragments of my own processes and I rebuild them into new jewels.

For the past 17 years, my brand has been seen in the most important galleries, stores, and design events of the local scene, and all of my products have received the Official Argentine Good Design Hallmark (Sello Buen Diseño), an endorsement of the Argentine Department of Industry that recognizes and rewards national products for standing out in terms of innovation and quality.
My products are sold in Museum Shops, Contemporary Jewelry Galleries and Concept Stores in Argentina, the United States, UK, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, France, Brazil, Switzerland, Luxembourg, among others. If you're interested in selling my products in your store, please get in touch!

Production partners

  • Laser cut service

    Buenos Aires, Argentina

    I design and made the prototype of a new model by hand, and then I design the cut drawings of the pieces in AutoCad. These processes are done by me in my workshop. Cutting planes and raw material are sent to this company, which performs the laser cutting process.

  • Turning service

    Buenos Aires, Argentina

    To cut and shape my raw material (aluminum) you need a cnc lathe and a lot of space: I work from pipes 6m in length !. This company cut and shape my raw material, following my indications to obtain the elements that I have designed for my products.

Care instructions

Apply perfumes and cosmetics in spray before putting on your jewelry.

Your jewelry should not have contact with products containing ammonia, chlorine or acetone.

To remove dust clean gently with a dry cotton cloth.

If your piece becomes soiled with moist or creamy cosmetics, wipe it with a cotton swab soaked in soapy water, dry it with a soft cloth.

The elements made in Silver in some models of earrings may become tarnished with time, it is a natural reaction of the Silver in contact with oxygen and light. If this happens, wipe gently with a cotton cloth slightly moistened with jewelry cleaners.
