Intro
When anodized, Titanium is the most jewel-like metal with it’s glowing spectrum of colors shifting in the light. It is also one of the most challenging materials to smith, but Jose Marin makes the challenge look effortless with these new works. He incorporates precious and semi-precious stones set in the Titanium and chooses forms inspired by plant and marine life that shimmer with every movement.

Artist list

José Marín
When I choose a material, it is always with the idea of transforming it into a magical object. At this time I have opted for Titanium, a unique metal. Its hardness and toughness brings the challenge of making jewels by hand. Inspired by botanicals, and combining Titanium with gold, silver and semi-precious stones, I enjoy exploring new directions for contemporary jewelry with all the colors that nature provides. / José Marín
