Each of my handmade jewelry pieces is an expression of my life experiences. Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, I was constantly surrounded by the works of local artisans. From the intricate carvings of the Santeros to century old, stone farm instruments in the countryside, I was drawn to objects shaped and created by hand. My fascination for how an abstract thought could be transformed into a tangible space, led me to pursue careers in architecture, interior design and set design. This background has shaped and inspired my designs. My work draws upon both the organic curves and shapes of nature and the stark geometric forms found in architecture. I seek to find a balance between fashion and architecture in my hand made jewelry pieces, many of which are one-of-a-kind.
