Votiva

Votiva is a collection closely linked to the idea of the body. It stems from the introspective search originated in the eyes.  Eyes that direct the gaze to the path of life.

Conceived as sculptural jewellery, the collection is presented in the form of several vital organs, such as the brain, the ovaries, the heart and the breasts. Each piece traces a pulse, a rhythm that like the heartbeat creates movement, stimulus, reactions.

These organs, which become small sculptures to be worn close to the body, to the skin, allude to the emotions and feelings reverberating in people who give them a special meaning depending on their individual history.

The collection opens a channel to reflect on the fragility of emotions, impulses and reactions moods generate in us.

Votiva

Votiva invites us to pause, to stop and listen to our own selves and to those who surround us, as a way of registering and sharing experiences, making them a common treasure

The pieces are solid. They hold and accentuate the actual weight of material, so the wearer intimately feels the weight of affection, passion, memories. They are items to be given as tokens that seek to make sense and give new meaning to the stories linked to those vital parts of the body.

The brain keeps stories

The heart vibrates with them

The breast feels them

The ovaries take care of them

Technique and Materials

Votiva is a collection of solid jewellery pieces made of sterling silver.

It is a 100% hand-made collection in which the jeweller intervenes in all the manufacturing stages, from the design to the wax casting and the finish and polish. That is why each sculptural piece is unique.

All pieces are subjected to passivation, a chemical process that protects them and prevents the natural oxidation of silver, so the jewels have a long-lasting life. This process does not affect the colour or the brightness of the piece.
