OLGA PRIETO

 
My jewelry tells my story, where I come from, what I love, what it inspires and what I am. They fuse Mexico's past and my way of looking at the present.
.
When I was barely 25 years old, I moved to Venezuela and later to Mexico where I discovered a fascinating world, full of color, energy, light but above all craftsmanship, on every corner, on every street, you can see an artisan making a unique piece , and I begin to realize how beautiful is the only thing, what has no mold, what is really different.
.
I am a pharmacist and somehow I was always attracted to alchemy, special formulas and I am beginning to feel captivated by all this that surrounds me.
.
My jewelry is inspired by gems, the stone is the essence of my work. Sapphires, Emeralds, Aquamarines, Rubies ... I choose them one by one, based on their whimsical shapes and their peculiarity, turning each piece into a unique and unrepeatable jewel.
.
I love crafts. Only hands create unique things and my pieces are made to exalt the beauty of the irregular, the imperfect beauty.

.

Jewels have a soul, beyond the material with which they are made, there is the immaterial, abstract and ancestral value with which they are created. That is what makes them eternal.
