When I was in New York for the first New York City Jewelry WeeK I had the chance to be interviewed by Sarah Rachel Brown for her amazing podcast Perceived Value.
Our conversation is about “ Coming to Jewelry later in life” and it was a pleasure to recorded it.
I hope you enjoy listening !

I had the incredible opportunity to exhibit my work at TuuuLibreria in Barcelona (check it out) during JOYA BARCELONA 2018 from the 4 to the 6 October.
TuuuLibreria is a non profit that gives you books ! You are asked to contribute what you want to help them pay the rent and wages but the books are essentially free… you donate what you want.
I had been working with poetry and text for a while, making necklaces with text in Morse code (“To be Human is to be in Time” collection) and when my friend and great jeweller Jordi Aparicio mentioned the place to me I knew I wanted to exhibit there.
So I called Alejandra Ferrer Escobar and Marcia Cirne and we put together a really great little show (at least I think so ).
Although the work I show follows the lines of what I was doing and presented at Galeria Reverso in Lisbon in July 2018, it is entirely new work, done specially for the exhibition in Barcelona.
We are thankful for all those who visited and for those who bought and to Xanthi and Elena (the women in charge of the place) who were our guardian angels and super cool and interested!
Here some (iPhone) images!
The group show ABC, shown for the first time in Valencia, will be presented again at JOYA Barcelona between 4 -7 October in the parallel events OFF JOYA. Some pieces of my Tathata collection will be there. Thank you Carlos Silva, Catalina Gibert and Isabel Tristan for organizing everything and to all the artists who participated.
Melting Point is happening again this week!
From the 26th to the 29th April Valencia hosts its Jewellery bienale.
I will be showing my work with an amazing group of artists in the Museu de la Ciutat, right next to the Valencia Cathedral.

I had the opportunity to show my works at the Perfect Strangers ´18 during Munich Jewellery Week. It was a great experience, mainly due to the great team that curated it and organized everything, Laura Alvarado and Aiko Blumer and of course, the perfect strangers exhibiting their works together with me.
Thank you all and thank you everyone who came to see it and took part in the events!

AMBER TRIP NATURE MORTE
Place: Copper Museum, Patryzantów 3
Exhibition open till: 11th June 2017
"Amber Trip" is the largest specialized international jewellery show in the Baltic states. This is an event that found a unique place in the cultural map of the world. This international exhibition is counting its second decade and brings together hundreds of jewellery companies and designers from around the world to the capital of Lithuania. The 14th International Jewellery and Amber Show "Amber Trip 2017" took place on March 8–11 and – as usual – was accompanied by Art Jewellery Competition, this year held under the title “Still Life.” This exhibition presents works submitted for the Competition.
Nature morte or still life, a genre commonly associated with painting, has been present in art from the earliest times. Contemporary artists still explore the topic with all its symbolic tradition as well as new connotations in different media. We asked jewellers and artists to explore this topic in jewellery form. There are very few works of contemporary art jewellery associated with nature morte. It may mean that such a subject is not an easy one for makers but it certainly is an interesting and inspiring one. Equally, amber, the recommended material (though not obligatory) fits well into the topic as it is itself often contains the fossilized remains of ancient life – and could be called a natural nature morte.
Winners of Amber Trip art jewellery contest:
Grand Prize - Lauryna Kiškytė “The crown of shame” (Lithuania)
1st place ring category - Daniella Sarayae “RE-COVER” (Israel)
1st place necklace category - Dovilė Kondrašovaitė “Beauty in full bloom” (Lithuania)
