With a needle, thread and beads I weave original artisan jewelry. With these basic materials, I design and construct jewelry that can be softly draped, like fabric, or geometric and structured. Influenced by the art history and costume design courses I took as a history major at UC Santa Barbara, my style incorporates classic, vintage and modern elements. My design is driven by color and texture. I often choose bold colors and love to mix them reflecting my Mexican American heritage.
