National Artist: Emily Armenta
Emily Armenta came from a family of artists and as a young girl she designed and worked with stones. You can see the Spanish influence in Armenta’s jewelry but she wants you to be able to feel it.
She was influenced more than anything, by the work of 20th-century Spanish poet-playwright Federico García Lorca and his idea of duende, “a power and not a behavior is the struggle that one must endure to create something of greatness”. Armenta has been creating her own totems of greatness for more than a decade with oxidized silver and 18kt gold pieces set with diamonds and colored gemstones.
Emily Armenta established an environment dedicated to creating hand-crafted artisanal accessories that redefine casual luxury as an integral part of the everyday wardrobe.
