Herança (Inheritance) (2006)

We inherit jewellery.
We inherit traditions.
We inherit values.

Latex has been the material of my jewellery pieces since 2003.
Latex is liquid and can be used as paint, which is a thing that interests me because it allows a crossing action between medias: jewellery and painting.

It was once very valuable, a vegetable gold….
As an artist I am interested in the meaning of value. Jewellery appears to be an excellent media to discuss it. I am also interested in finding ways to cope with lack of technique or materials. This can arouse one’s need to be creative and flexible, and then to cope with art and life.
