"Since 1981 I have been a self-taught artist, sculptor, designer, ceramist, and jeweler. I formulated a new method of teaching art, which I apply in my workshop, focusing on providing my students experience with the new concepts of physics and quantum mechanics. These understandings expand our consciousness towards a new perception of the human being and our reality, making us understand and integrate into our daily conceptualization the idea that matter and energy are aspects of the same thing. This learning aims at transforming our vision of the world and of ourselves through the creation of new forms, which is art.
"These innovative concepts emerge in the jewelry I develop. I create accessories that allow for harmonization, and consequently bodily health. Precious stones, in their colors, forms, sizes, and compositions, are chosen and combined in accordance with the points on the body of he or she who will wear it; the same points used for acupuncture, aimed at facilitating the harmonious distribution of energy in our body and mind. The quality of the wire, be it silver or copper, is chosen according to the same criteria.
"The origin of jewelry dates back many millennia, when some ancient civilizations, like China, India, and Egypt, combined clothing and jewelry with stones for protection, good luck, and healing. These pieces were used to equilibrate the body and help in the development of consciousness. With time this knowledge was forgotten and corrupted, giving way to the jewelry of today, used only for adornment.
"Today, besides my work as an artist and set designer, I am writing two books and I transmit my learnings in partnership with humanitarian organizations, and the development of a protective consciousness towards life and the citizen, working with under-assisted populations and training educators, psychologists, and professors, among others. I believe in this way we acquire a broader vision of that which is life on planet earth and we can better respect it and protect it."
