Intro
I expect people to see and get in contact with Contemporary Jewelry, the different type of aesthetic in jewelry, show them how a piece of jewelry can be beautiful not because the use of precious materials but for the concept or sentiment the artist wants to show or to provoke in people that wear it.
Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work? 
Commercial jewelry is standardized, people tend to wear what other people wear or buys and so the industry produces what their clients will buy and wear. Commercial jewellery goes always with fashion or trend of the moment. My work is local because I am inspired always by my surroundings living in Mexico, is very easy to see beauty in all the urban scenes and the contrast we have here, all this influences my work making it more local. And this contrast in the big city is not only here in Mexico but we have them all around the world maybe with different elements or scenes, they are universal. 


What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I expect people to see and get in contact with Contemporary Jewelry, the different type of aesthetic in jewelry, show them how a piece of jewelry can be beautiful not because the use of precious materials but for the concept or sentiment the artist wants to show or to provoke in people that wear it.


Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
 Yes, I am also a teacher, teaching people helps you understand the different types of perception people has, something that is very obvious for me may not be that obvious or clear for someone else. It has helped me to be more compassion and understanding.


The last work, book, film, a city that has moved me was...
I have to say it is ROMA not only because is from a Mexican Director, but it reminded me and made me reconnect with my childhood in Mexico city, all these elements very local that are typical in the city not only the historic ones but the city scenes of the street, the sounds, etc.


A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
Mexico, is a country full creativity, you can find it everywhere, art-crafts, food, in the street, the market in a light stop, everywhere!


Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
I appreciate all of them, anyone who proposes and creates, some are good some are not that good but the simple fact that they are trying to innovate in some form has to be appreciated.


What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
My process of creation is very difficult sometimes, I tend to hate one piece of jewellery during the whole process and when I am finished I put I away to rest, and then I see it again and I feel that satisfaction. 


Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
I do not read magazines, I have a lot of books and use social media to connect with other artists or events.


Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes I do, we do a lot of critic in my workshop or art collective with other artists and also with my teacher.


What is your first thought when you hear the word Future?, What do you expect for?
Tomorrow, to still be in the process of creating.
