One of my concerns and ways of expressing has to do with the art of jewelry. Being able to talk about dreams, ideas, observations, current problems and transform them into real and tangible objects is a way of creating, projecting and manifesting mini-portable sculptures.

My search mainly has to do with observing the details given by nature. On the other hand, my training as an architect has led me to discover topics to be developed on a different scale, understand and project from a process and a creative proposal that also includes research, history and critical thinking when designing a collection .

Ornamental research space FAB LAB Santiago seeks to rethink the concept of materiality and the way to build a jewelry proposal. The name Ornamental, has as main objective to question the definition of ORNAMENT as an element or composition that serves to "embellish" a body or an object. This space invites us to reflect on a form of expression which speaks of our own culture and a current reality, where the main support is the body.
