"Arts and crafts in general keep me company in day-to-day living. I cannot conceive a life without them!"
"I began crafting jewelry and belts about five years ago and it was my daughter who introduced me to this material. She would make her own necklaces and belts to add a special touch to her clothes, and I used to watch her intently. Little by little, I began to take an interest in it. I would help her organize the ensembles, embroider, and even share my opinions. Eventually I began buying my own materials and making my own accessories, which I always kept at home.
"When my neighbors got to see what I had been making, they wanted to buy my fashions and started placing orders. My collections began to take shape and my production began increasing. Meanwhile, my biggest concern was to ensure that my designs were original and different. I keep an eye out for fashion trends, but my designs are always my own.
"This work is a kind of therapy for me. Arts and crafts in general keep me company in day-to-day living. I cannot conceive a life without them!
"My necklaces, bags and belts are the reflection of my hands' dexterity at interpreting, in a delicate and unique way, what's in my imagination."
