Cabo de Gata brooch
Piece created for Challenge 2021 Jewelry and Nature
Materials plaster, oxidized brass
Nature is alive,
it moves and expresses itself in a continuous
and unceasing transformation.
An unstoppable circle of life and death.
Often, this ancestral ritual
is altered and interrupted by mankind,
even causing its irreparable loss.
These fragile and ephemeral pieces,
will be transformed over time,
as Nature does.
Impregnated with the memory
of a place and a moment,
captured through the plants.
Those living beings that inhabit every corner
of our beloved world.
