BIOGRAPHY
BIOGRAPHY
My work is developed in the field of Contemporary Jewellery and Textile Art. My academic studies are in the areas of languages, I graduated as a Translator in French. In the artistic field I have conducted studies of contemporary jewellery and different workshops in textile techniques including Kumihimo, weaving, creativity with textiles materials, Shibori, handmade felt.
I always felt attracted the textures produced by different textile techniques and the work of jewelry. The textile is very important in my pieces of jewellery. Contemporary jewellery allows me to amalgamate these techniques by either transforming metal into a textile weft or using alternative materials used in the textile field mixed with metal. By using these thousand-year-old techniques I seek to include new concepts and a new modern design into my pieces.
