"I understand jewelry as a portable object for experimentation. For interpretation. The discovery of a trigger that catches my attention, an intellectual investigation, inspiration and references, an evolutionary process in interaction with design, accompanied by an investigation of technologies, application of artisanal and industrial processes, experience with materials, in this way they dialogue knowledge with experience, opening a debate to the expression of contemporary jewelry. I research the power of language in society, Latin American contradictions, social contradictions, themes that inspire me when it comes to communicating. "
"The body is not only surrounded by things ... but it is the body that has gotten into objects." Jose Morales
