While I studied Social Communication in order to become a journalist, I started attending jewelry classes as a hobby. This extracurricular activity turned into a priority as sson as I started creating 3D objects. I made special workshops on Mokumé Gané, Acid etching and Marriage of metals with silversmith Oscar Bocassi and Paper Jewelry with designer Luis Acosta. I worked for 6 years with Argentinean Pop artist Marta Minujín as her personal assistant and as an apprentice with Oscar Bocassi for 2 years before I set my own studio and contemporary jewelry brand.
I use sterling silver, gold, copper, bronze and nickel silver combined with wood, semi-precious stones, and rare natural pieces. The main premise is: true craftsmanship and care for details. The way I work: exploration of different techniques and combination of materials. I believe in learning from each method, increasing skills and innovating. Inspiration may come from nature, geometry, a visit to a museum or to a hardware store. My jewelry results in unique objects that embellish those who dare use them.
PINCHE. La naturaleza tiene sus metamorfosis y mecanismos de defensa, uno de ellos son las espinas. Lo punzante y áspero protege algo bello y valioso. Nuestras piezas funcionan como amuletos protectores de la belleza de cada ser humano que los use. PINCHE. Nature has its metamorphoses and defense mechanisms, one of them are spines. The sharp and rough protects something beautiful and valuable. Our pieces work as protective amulets of the beauty of each human being that uses them. Ph. Ivanna Mazza
