Masaoms Jewels

Today I am featuring Marta of masaoms.etsy.com She is a jewelry artist who makes some beautiful pieces that mix metals that are very organic and unique.



What inspired you to make this product?
Currently I have Atón, Geb, Nut, Isis and Lotus Flower collections. All of them come from the ancient Egypt, from its gods and goddesses and the beliefs that survive till today. I admire German jewelry and enjoy their technique very much. I love to mix modern techniques with more personal designs and new takes on old jewels. My passion for stones led me to study Gemology and this opened for me windows into an incredible world, with lots of minerals to discover and utilize.

What are your favorite materials to use?
I usually use Silver and natural stones. Sometimes I include 24kt gold in my jewels to create textures and colour contrastes.

Where do you live and how does that influence your art?
I live in Barcelona, although I was born in Vic, a city 70 km from Barcelona. In Vic, when I go to my mother's home, I find nature, clean air and a lot of memories. When I'm in Barcelona I love the sea, the mix of diferent people and to get lost at antique streets. One of my favourite places is "Plaça Sant Felip Neri", it's inspiring
