The guiding value of ARTICULA’s workshop and shop is appreciation of the true worth of manual work. A unique piece crafted by hand allows the passerby to see how the work is done and what different techniques are used to create it. Knowing that some pieces were made at this location
promotes contact between the creator and the final user. This is very reassuring today – when most products travel the world to reach the consumer – who probably does not have the slightest idea who made the product, or even where and under what conditions it was made.
One of the concepts on which I base some of my works is the recycling and reuse of materials and objects in new jewellery. This bestows great dignity to articles that were previously discarded as junk or considered uninteresting.

Genius loci is a Latin term referring to the “spirit of the place”, to the genie of the place inhabited and visited by man and that was an object of object in the Roman religion.
In Thailand it is common to be placed at the entrance of a newly built house, a spirit house, because it is believed that the spirits already inhabiting the place must be granted shelter before the arrival of the new owner. According to this belief, these can cause problems if the owner does not own one.
Playing with the idea of the genie’s place, the protective spirit, of the mysterious and the video surveillance, I created a collection entitled “Genius Lab”, composed by 6 necklaces. They are made up with fluorescent, metallized Plexiglas test tubes, silhouettes and compositions with images, some of them already eaten by bibliophile insects, which were taken from a German catalogue of optical mechanisms and instruments from the 1900 international exhibition in Paris, which I found in an abandoned house.
