Cristina began as a jewellery artist from Chipiona, Spain, now based in Barcelona. Cristina successfully creates an intimate collection of jewellery that plays with tradition and modernity, by handcrafting her pieces using locally sourced materials. The process starts by modelling the pieces in wax by hand and melts them in 18ct gold, silver or brass. If the piece has been melted in brass, she then bathes them in 18ct gold, the sacred metal, recovering the tradition of her roots. All the gold used is recycled from gold which has already been used after purifying it and making its corresponding alloy again.
