'City mess and chaos hold the patterns that inspire my jewellery making. These can be found anywhere from the layered, disordered building in Mexico City to the specific movement of a crowd at rush hour.
Process is everything. To catch this untidy energy I must lose control during the design process. The result is playful jewellery for the bold.'
'El desorden y el caos urbano contienen los patrones que me inspiran la fabricación de mi joyería. Ejemplos de estos patrones incluyen la disposición caótica de los edificios de la Ciudad de México y el movimiento específico de una multitud en las horas pico.
El proceso es todo. Para a capturar esta energía desordenada, tengo que perder el control durante el proceso de fabricación. El resultado es joyería lúdica para el audaz.'
