Among her works stand out the coordination of the Jewelry and Foundation department of Arch College of Design & Business (IN); development and mentoring of the creative processes workshop 'A Joia Expandida' (BR), & individual art jewelry exhibition 'A pele é o mais profundo' (BR).


Jewelry enchants me because of its ability to affect us in all its dimensions: thinking, making, dressing, and seeing the object on the body. My work proposes to bring to intimacy subjects from political and social spheres, often looked at from some distance. In shaping and bringing to surface deep values, I invite each one to reflect on individual responsibilities and the notion of interconnection.

The everyday digging
The series proposes to expose social and environmental consequences of mineral extraction processes, inviting reflection: 'what do I decide to finance in the world with my daily choices?' A call to look beyond the surface. Nothing is just what the eyes see.

Under/on skin
Jewels made with pictures of my family's women and pieces of heritage jewelry. An investigation about the layers that compose me and how my questions and ideas about life, feminism, and patriarchy are the links with my ancestors but also my freedom.
