For Rita Martinez every object represents a story with a mixture of happiness, melancholy, love, fear and passion. At times it has a leitmotiv and gets shaped in progress, at times it is just a stimulus, a sensation and can bring up a memory or show a route, not necessarily following the artist’s intent, but the personal experience of the person who observes or wears the jewel.
Every piece she makes has no season, no place, is simply a part of a journey, a piece of her life and the fruit of a deep, constant research: a tale turned into an object by the storyteller she has inside.
For two years she got the Venice Design Week prize. She has had her pieces on show in galleries and museums in Switzerland, Bucharest, Porto, Milan, Venice, Adria, Casalmaggiore and present in reviews like Vicenza Jeweller and Preziosa Magazine.
