I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
Since I can remember, art has been a strong influence in my life. I come from Mexico, a country that is so rich in traditions, culture and art. Everything that surrounded me when I was a child living in Southern Mexico (Chiapas) was very important in my formation. I think that I felt more in love with my country when I moved to live in the USA. I miss so many things. This great passion for my culture motivated me to take my first class in metals in San Antonio, Texas. I had so many ideas in my heart that needed to come to life and metal smithing allowed me to do that. . My inspiration comes from my big love for my culture and traditions and this love allows me to create pieces with much soul. -

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.

Behind the Brooch: A closer look at backs, catches and pin stems (Book)

I started a wonderful project last year about collecting images of brooches from the side we rarely see, the back side. It was such a wonderful experience to see how different artists approached the back look and mechanism of their brooches.

I started looking around for more pictures, and although it was not an easy task I managed to create a wonderful board on Pinterest named, of course, …

Behind the brooch

I have always thought that the back of any jewelry piece is as important as the front. I always try to have something on the back of my pieces as a surprise for the wearer and also because I think it says a lot about the maker.

Most of the work I do has a detail on the back, I enjoy very much doing it.…
