Tell us about your education.
My first forays into jewelry making occurred as a child helping my mother at age 11. She taught me different techniques and concepts of jewelry – that was my first school. At age 18, I moved to Santiago where I studied for four years at the Bellas Artes Academy, which specializes in metal techniques, granulation, enamel and chain-making.
Share some of your career highlights or goals.
Most of my products are rendered in grade 950 silver and semiprecious stones, but I also utilize other metals, including gold and copper in addition to semi precious and precious stones. Of course, each item is individually and lovingly hand made. I also sometimes use different materials like fish leather (salmon), wool, horse hair, seeds, feathers, enamel, resin, glass etc.
