2013-2015. Five years ago I had to abandon my dream of staying in the US after graduating from my MFA, just like many other international art students and friends who had to leave during 2008 recession. Only the though ones remained, gloriously if I may say, they honor the opportunity they were given every day. What to do with a degree that is barely know in México – contemporary jewelry – often mistaken for traditional designers jewelry?

Well, I decided to teach. It’s been four years since I started this life project, and I call it that because for me, informing the new generations about contemporary jewelry is a life mission. I work with waste materials. Why? Because they were all I had left as working materials after graduating from a very prestigious but also pricey school. So I decided to make lemonade with the lemons I had, or as I named my toilet paper cardboard rolls jewelry series « When Life Gives you Shit, Use it as Fertilizer « . As a result, three years later, I am gathering the outcome of this project with a physical & virtual exhibition. Thank you everyone who has handed me an opportunity to make this happen. Special thanks to Universidad Gestalt de Diseño in Xalapa, Ver. Mx for fostering an opportunity for contemporary jewelry to flourish in México.

Sustainable jewelry at Universidad Gestalt de Diseño Xalapa (Mexico): BREATHTAKING !!

Classé dans : ECOLE / SCHOOLS,Mariana ACOSTA (Mx.),Mexique (MX),recup' / recycled — bijoucontemporain @ 0:09
Mariana Acosta  professor at sustainable jewelry class of Universidad Gestalt de Diseño Xalapa, Mexico  :
« Aug_Jan_2014/15 : This is my students work. The class goal was to make a piece of contemporary jewelry from waste materials that are considered useless outside the creative realm. A dialogue between the maker and the material is enabled through a process of profound research and experimentation. Understanding the possibilities of the material to be transformed into an out of the ordinary body ornament was central to the success of the work. I feel very proud that some of them were able to develop their own personal exchange with the material«

Can you guess the material from which this piece was made? Have you seen how Styrofoam sheets are made?

In México, brands of snacks like chips usually have this « tazos » inside their chip bags as a collectable item for years now. They usually depict cartoon characters. My student created this amazing piece which interestingly shines like it was made of precious stones due to the holographic prints in them. / Esta pieza esta hecha de « tazos » que por su naturaleza holográfica brillan como si fueran piedras preciosas.
