San Antonio
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. -

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal.

Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

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.

This necklace was made inspired in the wonderful Mexican celebration of Dia de Muertos (Day of the dead.) The skull is surrounded by butterflies who represent the soul and transformation. Inside the milagro heart I added dry flowers and rice…

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

Posted on June 13, 2013 at 8:56pm 1 Comment

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.…
