Jorge is a teacher and has participated in numerous fairs, publications, solo and group exhibitions like SOFA and Schmuck.

Berto Martínez
This year and to celebrate its 5th edition, JOYA invited illustrator Berto Martínez, who has worked for magazines such as the Rolling Stones and the Washington Post Arts, to produce a series of 12 illustrations based on the artists pieces submitted for JOYA 2013. The exhibition will be held at FAD and is open to the public during the days of the event.

Enjoia’t Awards
ENJOIA’T, Prize for Contemporary Jewelry Making, is a unique event within the sector, which has been rewarding the most outstanding proposals within the field of jewelry making for professionals as well as students. The award goes to originality, technical quality, conceptual richness and transgression in the field of jewelry making so much as to question its own limits.

In 2013, JOYA challenged itself to reach outside the FAD exhibition hall by pairing jewellery artists and galleries, that are not necessarily jewellery oriented but understand its contribution to art and design. The purpose is to further extend the offer of this art event to the public and to create greater synergies between the contemporary jewellery outlets that already exists in the city.
The end product is a route of jewellery exhibitions around the city of Barcelona that are open to the public and reach a larger audience.
