The word alchemy comes from the Arabic "al-kímiya", hence the name of my personal brand, KimyaJoyas. Of all its meanings, I'm keeping the word Transmutation, as a synonym of change. That, mutate, is basically what jewelry is for me, transforming the raw material into small objects full of intention.
KimyaJoyas is a small artisan workshop located in a village near the coast of Alicante. The sea and the Mediterranean landscape is part of my inspiration and source of ideas. I am moved by architecture and all kinds of art, also the female body. And last but not least, motherhood revealed to me, at the time, a whole new range of emotions that I definitely saw reflected in my work.
I make my own designs using traditional jewelry techniques, focusing on beauty and quality. I love handmade pieces of all disciplines, where you feel the human touch, the texture, its unique being, we could say the soul imprinted on them.
Since I was a child, I have been moved by curiosity, by knowing and imagining how things were made, where they came from, how they were built. As a young girl, I explored different fields, ceramics, iron, silk painting, and finally I arrived, almost by chance, to jewelry, where I discovered an endless field of learning. Within jewelry I declare myself more as a builder, I like to handle the metal and adapt the idea around it. Gems and all their infinite variety are totally inspiring. I am passionate about buying them, selecting them, and knowing every day a little more of their vast world.
This project was born approximately in 2017, although it has always been there, as I have been making jewelry for at least 15 years. Giving it a name, and with it a structure, helped me to know where to go. This project contains years of study, many hours of work and passion for this interesting world of jewelry.
I am very grateful to my clients, who have accompanied me throughout the time, supporting me in every step of my process. Without them KimyaJoyas would not be such. They are a guide, a source of ideas, and generators of strength. Thank you very much.
