Tiny balls of gold are welded onto the jewellery and form ornaments, patterns and lines. patterns and lines. It is the millennia-old technique of granulation that gives Pura Ferreiro's work its special radiance and value. The goldsmith has been working with granulation since 1990, developing the possibilities of surface design from antiquity and anchoring them in contemporary jewellery art with her very own language of form.
