I have always had a restless mind and busy hands, something that led me to study art as soon as I had the choice. First jewellery, at the Arts and Crafts College, then Fine Arts, at the University of Barcelona.
There are two important reasons I make jewellery. The first one is that I need to create in three dimensions, and the size of jewellery is ideal, much more intimate than sculpture. It allows me to take it where I please, observe it from every angle, situate it in space and on the body. It must always have a functional aspect, because of its relationship to the body, and I like this functionality because it keeps my feet on the ground, which brings me to the second reason… I love adornment, I’m fascinated by human beings in general (how they relate to one another, how they dress, their customs, how they feed themselves, how they develop…). Becoming part of other people’s lives through a piece of jewellery, or an idea, sends shivers down my spine.
Everyone is capable of judging a piece of jewellery, of using it, of linking it to emotions or important events in one’s life. For me, a piece of jewellery is identity, it is memory.
I would define my jewellery as an aesthetic blend of industrial and natural. I am attracted to pure forms, perfection, and movement. I like working with metal because from a cold material, put through an aggressive process, delicate pieces emerge that are charged with emotions.
