copper and sterling silver
3.8 x 2.3 x 0.4 cm
Lucía is in a constant search for the potential of materials, through the investigation and experimentation in her jewelry work. The copper and silver metals with their diverse physical and chemical properties, allow that through malleability and thermal conductivity, be treated like paper. The multiple techniques of folding the paper, generate abstract and figurative forms, being a source of inspiration for her jewels.
The textures, the bending and the oxidation of the metal create their own character due to their innate plastic characteristics, but they are also resistant, rebellious, remembering that she is working with metal. In her jewelry pieces, there is a democratic work, where there is no distinction between precious and non-ferrous metal, and where there is a need for search, for expression, for dialogue, for reflection, and a need for response.
