Intro
Hebe Argentieri is an art jeweller based in Junín, Argentina. She has taken classes in contemporary jewelry design at Mabel Pena´s studio, in addition to a number of seminars and workshops. She has shown her work at different national and international exhibitions. Her jewelry is the means to question the world around her.

Statement

My work derives mainly from questioning issues about the world around me. Living in a small agricultural city in Argentina, such issues may refer to the growingly negative effects of unsustainable farming on the environment, to the impact of being a woman in such a chauvinist society or revolve around the reactions this immediate world has on me. 

My most recent work results from the feelings of impotence and rebellion I have always endured at the constrictions experienced as a Latin American woman living in a misogynist society and the self-determination needed to transcend the social construct of femininity.
The materials are selected in close relation to the intended message. For instance, I choose the wood that can be carved and modified in line with the idea that gender stereotypes can be altered; also the horn, and plastic broom filaments that do not correspond with the preconceived concepts of male and female. Or in my collection Terra, I combine recycled plastic-overdue test tubes- with metal to depict fields that used to be green but turned black, void.
