Changes, Travels and Love...

I was finishing my medicine career, Martin was leaving a rutinary work. Different ways but same vital crisis. Both needed a change.
One day, we start to think the way to work while we travel...Then Martin said: "Ya sé! Querés que te enseñe joyeria??? ("I got it! Do you want me to teach you jewelry???").
He had studied several years as a hobby...and that was the opportunity to start doing a very complete activity: creating, designing, producing, selling and always learning something new ...
No Doubts.
Hard work and a joyful new way of living, make our life gets a completely new meaning... Jewelry became a full time job for both, and I find some extra time during the week, to see my patients at my home-office. Hard Work. Hard Work. Study and Hard Work. This is our recipe. We´ve always believed: Inspiration will catch you while you´re working, as Pablo Picasso said.

We used to live in a very old style apartment in the historic city centre of Buenos Aires. Now, we live in a very old style studio! We gave to our inspiration some freedom (some many years locked..), and It took a very big space: the entire house became a workshop area!
Our work space is never "clean". We´re constantly doing something: drawing, producing, taking some pic´s or projecting a new journey. When you love what you do, is hard to stop.

The last six years we´ve been working on this project, mostly in Buenos Aires, but we always find the way to spend some days, travelling all along our country...Argentina. Mountains, deserts, jungles, valleys, seaside, glaciers and most important, many new friends everywhere we go!

For Us, Life is a journey. Travel it with no regrets.
