Intro
Rita is a jewelry artist living in Santiago, Chile. She studied Industrial Design and Cultural Management in Santiago. She worked collaborating on various Crafts and Design projects. Since 2002 she has learned the jewelry trade from her father. In 2012 she formed  LAJOIA jewelry school. Between 2014 and 2018, she held the position of President of JOYABRAVA Association. She has developed a deep work of relevance to the micro basketry technique, researching, experimenting and generating pieces that stand out for their innovation and sensitivity. LOEWE Craft Prize 2018 Finalist.

Statement

My work comes from the search for a language of its own and from textile experimentation, working for many years with natural fibers and traditional basketry techniques from my country, added to the knowledge of the jewelry trade that have allowed me to generate a proposal around textile bodies and wefts. Creating biomorphic objects, textile creatures that dialogue between the organic and the poetic, weaving identities, interweaving imaginary. Transforming these objects into pieces of art jewelry.
