"I take a socially responsible approach friendly to the environment. Each piece is crafted by hand."

"I first came close to jewelry was when I was 12 years old, when I took an occasional workshop class. It wasn't until I... was 20 that I decided to focus on this art. No one in my family had this passion for jewelry, so you could say it's a natural gift.

"For me, jewelry is a utilitarian sculpture. It is a creative process that consists of the abstraction of the forms around me to make them come to life in silver with a style of my own. For me it has become a means of expression and, therefore, a passion that acquires meaning thanks to those magical moments of the person-to-person encounter.

"I owe my knowledge to the mentoring of a Belgian teacher who instructed me in the magic of silver. She inspired me even more by her distinctive style. Later I was fortunate to continue training with an Argentine teacher, and with an artisan from Guanajuato who showed me the charm of Mexican silver.

“It wasn't until 2014 that I was able to create my workshop. I am still studying techniques, designs and approaches in order to give more authenticity to my technique, which gives me more security in each of my creations.

"My main material is sterling silver, obtained through the process of electrolysis from discarded materials in the medical and electronic parts industry. In this way I take a socially responsible approach friendly to the environment. Each piece is crafted by hand with different techniques, but without a mold. This allows me to give my jewelry unique and special details.

"Now my goal is to share my designs with more people."
