Intro
Anne Luz Castellanos is a French-Mexican contemporary jeweller living and working in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She studied Industrial Design in Mexico City, and then entered into the jewelry world. Once she moved to her new home, she discovered the contemporary jewelry and she found a new way to express her self. She has participated in several collectives exhibitions, and in 2018 she is selected at Schmuck 2018.

Statement

I left the country where I was born, even though each day I’m more adapted to my new life, it was and is still hard to be so far from my relatives. There is nostalgia, self-reflection and new relations to come.
I think this is the main source of inspiration for my jewelry pieces.

As I thought about how to express these feelings through a piece of contemporary jewelry, I realized that having tea can be both a very social activity, as well as a time for solitude and meditation.  Drinking a cup of tea can be associated with enjoying banal, funny, even deep conversations with your close ones or just yourself.

During the last years, I preserved and transformed into art the tea and tea bags used in each occasion.
Each tea, lived each moment and witnessed every meeting, what was said and what the thoughts were.
