About

I make jewelry for women with a personal fashion concept

I love the Greco-Roman, Asian and African art. I find inspiration in contemporary artists, from them all I have to learn. I am fascinated by the imperfect pieces of big proportions mixing different textures and materials. I am inspired by them to design and create my pieces. I don’t exclude any material, but I prefer brass, leather, ceramics, glass, natural stone, feathers and seeds. I am experimenting with recycled materials at the moment too, and I intend that my pieces are completely eco-responsible in the near future.

The havanaflamingo names come from the union of my beloved Havana my hometown (a city of mixtures, cheerful, imperfect and seductive) and flamingos, birds of whimsical choreographic, exotic and graceful movements, which I adore.

I can not deny my life is full of paradoxes. My passions have always been design and art, but I ended up studying accounting in Havana in my teenage times. I came to Spain and studied Marketing, but I ended up as a real estate agent. One day my mind and my heart said it was enough. And with the support of my partner, and without any other training than observation and passion (I know I have to study more), I created my studio-workshop in a small town outside Barcelona, where I live, and decided to design and create all the jewelry pieces that came to my mind. It Is never too late, I told myself, and so I hope it is.

Care instructions

In every shipment you will find these care instructions.

All the pieces of Havanflamingo are protected with varnish for metal. Brass, as any other metal, rusts with time. This is part of a natural process.

Do not shower or get into the sea using your jewelry.

You should take into consideration the PH of your skin, skins with a very acid PH tend to rust easily any metal.

Moisturizing creams, sun block cream and make-up contain components which absorb water, this is why you should wear your pieces only after the make-up or the cream have already dried out on your skin.

After taking off your jewelry clean them with a soft and dry cloth.
