    My Life as a Wire Artist and Jewelry Maker

    This is where all begins: my little studio in Jersey City, New Jersey. I used to work mostly in the Caribbean, but after hurricanes (two years ago), I moved up here. My studio is full of boxes, wires, beads, glue, tools… also dreams, many dreams. All my dreams are woven into the wire. I let my imagination go wild and I follow the wire. That’s how things come alive. It’s so much fun! I constantly change my designs, they are never the same, that is why I always say that my pieces can not be replicated 100%. My first tree of life pendant came like this. I liked the free-form…

    Gaia, Earth Goddess Wire Art

    Today I would like to introduce my latest wire art, which is a large wall decor piece, 25″x25″. It is my own vision of Mother Nature, Gaia, the Earth Goddess. It took a while to finish it, 6 month or so, because I worked only when I had spare time and inspiration. My art pieces are all free-form, no drafts or drawings, I basically go with the flow. Here is the final piece, hanging on my wall. … and a close-up, to check those details… I remember the first steps. I started with a head… experimenting the wire twisting technique. I had no idea what will come out of that…

    Wire Art – Palm Tree Wall Decor

    Wall Decor, 18″ x 24″ x 2″. As per these dimensions, you can see that this is a not a flat piece, it raises about 2″ from the surface. It is very hard to take a good picture of it, I tried with two different backgrounds, still doesn’t make justice. 🙂 Anyway… like any other artist out there, I am inspired by Mother Nature. Palm trees always fascinated me. Here is a beautiful photo of a majestic palm-tree I took in the Caribbean. … let’s go back to my wire art 🙂 My wire palm tree is a very happy tree. This is the message I am sending through this…

    Wire Art – Rasta Woman Wall Decor

    When I lived in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, I was surrounded by beautiful people with long dreadlocks. Most of them were practicing Rastafarianism, which is a strong religion in the Caribbean. I made a lot of friends and of course I got inspired by them. This wall decor is my interpretation of Dorothy, a beautiful, witty and very courageous women, whom I had the pleasure to meet there. Dimensions 18″x22″. I used galvanized wire and a few wooden beads, to emphasize the Rastafarian liberation colors. I started with a frame, again free form, I never draw anything on the paper! I let the wire talk to me 🙂 Then…

    Wire Art – Lionfish

    I’ve been asked recently about my Lionfish Mobile Ornament source of inspiration.   Here is the story: Lionfish is a destructive fish. It has poisonous fins, it hurts badly if it stings, it eats other fish and their eggs, especially lobster eggs, so it is a threat for the environment if spread out of control. I once saw one Lionfish caught in a fisherman’s net in St. Thomas, USVI. I did not have a camera handy to take pics. But my brain certainly photographed the creature. It was as big as my fist, with long, beautiful, colorful fins. It was moving like crazy. My feelings were so strong, I was…
