I m a contemporary jeweler from Chile, Industrial Designer from the UTEM, and cultural manager from the University of Chile.

I started my training as a jeweler with my father, who is a traditional jeweler. I also completed my formation with specialization studies. I have been practicing the field for ten years, I have exhibited my work in Chile and abroad with my homonymous brand Rita Soto.

I’m a founder and director of LAJOIA School of Jewellery since 2012.

From the year 2014 until 2018 I was president of the Association of Contemporary Jewellery of Chile Joya Brava.

I develop pieces that have a strong research for new materials shapes and colors. I complement design processes with hand manufacture, rescuing materials and crafts that belong to an ancestral territory. That way I link design, craft an innovation.





JoyaBrava is a non-profit trade union association that gathers more than 30 contemporary Chilean jewellers, who work the jewellery as a means of artistic expression,  investigating and experimenting with materials, concepts and processes.
