About

From an artisan family to architecture and then to minimal and experimental jewelry

=======ME========

I was born in a small village, Coruche in Portugal. I live in Coimbra, Portugal, with my son and his father in a small apartment, in a friendly neighborhood. Coimbra is the home of the oldest university in the country, and one of the oldest in the world. I came here to study architecture and never left.

I come from a family of crafters, my great grandfather, from my mother´s side, was the master builder and carpenter, his sons grew up to be carpenter, joiner and fitter (mechanic). My grandmother married with my grandfather, who was a fitter too, and later was the master teacher of my father, and that’s how my parents met. Isn’t it sweet!?

So I love the smell of the wood being cut, I grow up between tools and benches, and I love it, and never thought some day I will be missing it so much, that I have to be creating something too.

Then I decided that I should take some workshops. And the thing that seduced me most was to learn how to work with acrylic.
I loved it so much, that I started to buy tools and materials in order to make more.

==========The Process=========

I design the image, saw, sand and polish all the pieces by hand.
I love all pieces, because they are made with care, searching for peace of mind, and trying to learn new techniques.
I buy the acrylic sheets of 50-60cm x 1,10 m approximately. Study the design of the bracelets, and rings, materials to be applied. Thereafter, the acrylic is cut with a jewellery saw, filled, sanded and polished, all handmade. When hot, the acrylic is molded according to the desired shape.
A bracelet takes two to 6 hours depending on the design. Rings are faster, because the surface to be saw, sand and polish is much smaller, and take about an one to two hours.

========= Moving Foward =========

Since then I´ve been experiencing new techniques to work with acrylic, and aluminum, and improving my tools in order to create a cleaner, faster and objective process,including buying a laser machine.
