I believe that the ornaments complement us, they can change our energies, and make us travel. I love ethnic art and ancient Greek jewelry, and I’m inspired by them to create my pieces. I look for elements in the four corners of the world that have some strength or beauty, that I feel somehow special, and I mix them. I use materials such as semi-precious stones, metal, pearls and leather.
In 2012, with the slightly older kids, I opened a studio in Baixa de Lisboa with a friend. There was a balcony over Rua Augusta and we could feel the frenzy of the city. I also started to frequent the markets that appeared in Lisbon. I loved it. For the first time, I received customers and realized what they saw and looked for in my pieces.
I started to be more and more sure of what I wanted and how I wanted to do it. In 2014 I moved to Chiado with my sister and a friend. There was no turning back, I was surrendered.
I always kept jewelry close by, but I followed Hotel Management and, for 10 years, I lived in Alentejo. I created pieces just as a hobby, but when the hospitality stopped making sense, there the jewelry returned to give me a sense.
I started by working at home. My boys were still too young, and I wanted an activity that I fell in love with and that allowed me to follow its growth.
A new stage!
This sharing of space, being with those I like and feeling good every minute are very important to me. I really try to make the most of this. This was one of the reasons for opening a new studio at Lx Factory. I have always loved this space, due to the simultaneous experience of various arts and crafts. I think it is the right place for Antik Pink to be and receive my clients.
