About the Artist
Carmen was born in Valencia on the eastern coast of Spain. Since 2001 she has been living in Norwich, U.K. where she began silver-smithing. Her passion for silver craft has developed as a journey of experimentation and discovery into the raw beauty of the metal. Her ambition is to expose the core of silver in a way it can complement and enhance the wearer in any situation.
Carmen produces her designer jewellery in her workshop in Norwich using the highest quality 925 Sterling silver, semi-precious stones and fresh-water pearls.
"My aim is to create unique, simple and organic forms in a contemporary style, whilst keeping a timeless feel. I believe less is more and try to focus on the simplicity of each piece, finishing the jewellery with textured matt surfaces and scratches that result in a greater reflection of the light. By the very nature of how the pieces are created, every piece is slightly different"
