Biography

Trinidad Contreras was born in Seville, Spain, in 1977. She studied at the Advanced Training Programme in Artistic Jewellery at Escola Massana, Barcelona, Spain.

She is now part of the Bórax08001 contemporary jewellery group, founded in 2010 at the Escola Massana.

“The pieces that I am presenting are the result of the materialization of a personal and emotional state. Order, beauty and the concrete that exists within my private memory take the centre role. A chance encounter with nature, after having performed a sincere and demanding introspection. I feel attracted to what is known, simple, pleasant, round.

It makes me reflect upon what can exist within a sensual and harmonious world. A world where time passes by slowly, but in a vital and ephemeral way, in a constant circular motion of creation-destruction.”
