IN EACH CULTURE THERE IS A COMMON SOUL AND EACH OF US HAVE OUR OWN RITUAL


rites around me taught me to feel, communicate, hate, and love

2014
This is a ceremony of liberation, a ritual, the action of bringing out the dead part of my body through a long and unique scream.

My jewellery-tools are the symbols that represent this act, to amplify my sound, and thus releasing the energies of my body with the language of my voice loud and clear.

They liberate my emotions from within me.

The shapes used in my collection are inspired by the instruments in the Mapuches and Andinos rituals, made in horn, shell, textile and ceramic.


Una ceremonia de liberación, un rito. El acto de sacar las partes muertas de mi cuerpo mediante un gran y único grito.

Mis joyas-instrumentos son el símbolo del acto que representan; la acción de amplificar mi sonido y así soltar las energías de mi cuerpo con el lenguaje de mi voz.

Libero mis emociones.

Las formas usadas en mi colección están inspiradas en los instrumentos usados en los ritos Mapuches y Andinos, los que eran realizados con cuernos, conchas y a la vez incorporando las técnicas textiles y cerámica.
