How it all started

I've always been an artist. As a kid I would ask Santa Claus to bring me crayons, pencils and paint. When they asked me: "What do want to be when you grow up?" My answer was: "An artist". 

After graduating from high school, I entered Art In the Pontifícia Universidad Católica (PUC- in Santiago de Chile). After two years, I decided to make a move, because it was not challenging enough.

I took the PSU (equivalent to SAT) with the intention of going to Business school. When the results came out, I was devastated. I hadn't made the cut for Business School in the PUC (which, at the moment, was the best and only university I would attend). 

My sister who had taken the test that year told me I had done pretty well. "You actually could go to medical school with that score", she said. 

"Medical school? That could be interesting." I thought to myself. The next day I applied and was accepted. After almost two years of a lot of hard work and frustrations, I decided being a doctor was not my vocation. 

In 2007 I joined Business School in Universidad Adolfo Ibañez. After being in Medical School, it seemed like a breeze. Although I enjoyed Business, there was something missing in my life... Something creative. 

I started googling all types of courses to see what could be of my best interest. Jewelry seemed to be on the top of my list. As a teenager, I made string and bead bracelet and would try selling them to my friends. After watching videos of metals fusing together and stone setting, I decided to take a jewelry course. This has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.

Why am I sharing all of this? Because it's part of my past. Sometimes we need to experience a full circle before finding the answer. Although I'm not even close to having it all figured out, I know one thing: There's nothing that makes me happier than designing jewelry.
