My passion for traveling led me indirectly tojJewelry making since it was the only way to afford it. I would spend hours and hours sitting on the streets of the visited countries, selling my jewelry in order to pay for food and housing. And what started as a need for survival became a need for living.
Traveling, I met my husband (after bumping into each other for years in different countries). We first lived on an island on the French west coast for a few years, then we’ve moved to Paris to start a new life. It’s been a year since we moved back to Mexico (I am Mexican). We make everything here by hand and send all of our orders to Paris to be dispatched from there around the world.
In 2005 I took a short silversmith course at the Escuela de Artes Plasticas in Taxco, Mexico (The mecca of silversmith in the country, you gotta go visit! It is such a beautiful village), but I would say that I am mostly self taught.
My work doesn’t follow one particular design aesthetic but rather involves some form of technical experimentation; that’s where I find the motivation for making every piece. However, I have to say that my most beautiful creations so far are my 2 and 10 year old sons, Nilo and Teva.
I put my heart into every piece of jewelry I make, that is why for me they all tell a story, they are all unique, I hope you can feel that too.”
