About

Intuitive, organic, minimalistic art jewelry for the contemporary woman

I am an artist making small sculptures made to be worn as jewelry. I choose metal as a medium because I love its feel, malleability, durability, and the patinas it acquires. I love to give form to sheet metal with just fire and pounding. I feel we should try to minimize our impact on nature’s course, that is why I’m inclined to organic shapes and patinas that occur in nature. I'm interested in the process of time and its effect on things, to nature's unpredictability, but also its repetitiveness.

My latest collection of enameled jewelry is inspired by the plants I am surrounded by. I started collecting leaves and plants from my field and garden, usually weeds with interesting silhouettes that I find in my walks. I press, dry and use these plants as stencils for my enamel work. I pick contrasting colors, or embrace the natural colors of the copper oxidizing under a clear enamel coat. I work in a playful, unrestricted, loose, and asymmetrical manner, but am very precise when the leaves need to be lifted so as to not drop the sieved enamel powder on top of the leaf into the piece. I have to carefully pick up the pieces and torch fire them until the glass powder fuses to the metal.

My inspiration comes from my own environment and my lifestyle. My studio is in my home. I live with my husband and son in an antique rural brick and adobe home with two feet wide walls and high ceilings in the “Argentine Pampas”. We have horses just because I love them, cows that give us fresh organic milk, chickens, dogs, cats, and a vegetable garden. We have a cattle tank with a windmill that pumps underground water for the cattle drinking water, supplies drip irrigation for the vegetable garden, is used as a swimming pool in the summer; and fireplaces and wood-burning stoves in the house for wintertime.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I now accept direct checkout in addition to PayPal. You may still make a payment with your credit card through PayPal even without PayPal an account.

Immediate payment is expected. Please contact me if you are having problems with the checkout process.

If you fail to make your payment and do not contact me I will cancel the sale within 1 day if it is a one of a kind piece, and within 4 days otherwise.
Shipping
Pieces are shipped inside a gift box tied with a ribbon and ready for gift giving. I stuff boxes inside a bubble mailer to ensure safe arrival.

I ship to the address you provided to Etsy, not PayPal. Please make sure this address is current and correct.

Orders are shipped from Argentina, so allow approximately 20 days arrival from date of payment. I ship my orders by air through Correo Argentino (Argentine Post Office). I use "Pequeños Paquetes Certificados" which requires a signature. If nobody is home to sign for the package, you might have to make a phone call or trip to your local post office (USPS if you're in the U.S.A.)

The buyer is responsible for any customs fee applicable in your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do accept returns under limited circumstances. Contact me as soon as possible so we may discuss it. Generally a return postmarked within 20 days of my shipping of an item to you will be acceptable. However, custom orders may not apply.

Postage costs for a returned item will not be refunded unless it was an error on my part.

Also note that if an item is lost or damaged in transit back to me, I may be unable to refund the cost, so please ensure items are well packaged and insured/tracked if you are concerned.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like me to slightly modify a piece, request a custom order, or if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, don't hesitate to send me a conversation.
