Collectiva International Meeting 2019

11 Jul 2019
As last year, I have the great honour to have been selected for the Collectiva International Meeting in Porto that will take place from 21 September - 31 October, 2019.
I feel doubly great about that because this venue has been and always will be the event that was a stepping stone launching my presence in the international contemporary jewellery design scene.

This year, it is all the more personal for me because there will be two ladies exhibiting their jewellery in Porto. Me and my mom. It has been quite a clandestine operation to get her there. She is a great artist but does not speak much English so would never think of applying. To give her a surprise of a lifetime, I applied secretly on her behalf and - with the great help and understanding and saintly patience of my accomplices:), the ladies from the Collectiva - she was selected to be a part of this stellar gathering in Porto. You see then, there are no limits when you create, no boundaries. The creative spirit connects us all. Thank you again, Anna, Joana, Lia, Marta e Susana, you made one dream come true!

I will be in Porto for the grand opening on 21st September, too, so I would like to take this opportunity to invite you all to come to see what is new in the exciting world of the contemporary jewellery.
