I find design and form, fashion, cultures and people very interesting. I have explored these interests in different ways since I can remember.
I started making accessories when I was a teenager. My first earrings were made of insulated copper wire from my dad´s stuff. I loved the vibrant colors of the plastic cover and the fact that I could easily mold them. They were kind of heavy though.
But that was long time ago! Nowadays I work in Silver, it is an amazing material to work with. I warmly invite you to follow my journey as jewelry designer and entrepreneur.
I studied Silversmithing and Jewelry Design at Folkuniversitetet, in Stockholm. It was a great one and a half-year of learning and sharing my passion with other students by the hand of two well experienced and highly educated teachers from Konstfack, Ann-Sofi Forsman and Rolf Lindståhl.
Although, I started my career in tourism, at Margarita Island, Venezuela. After graduating I decided to complement my studies with a Master of Business Administration. As soon as I started my new career I felt in love with marketing, customer behavior and innovation, so I digged my way into market research which I have been working on for years. In 2011, after moving from Caracas to Stockholm, while adapting and installing in my new hometown, I took the chance to study a half a year program of Silversmithing and jewelry design. The experience was captivating and the start of this journey.
