"Using silver, 18K gold, and stones, Analya Cespedes creates pieces that are wearable and sometimes playful. They reflect her attraction to an aesthetic rooted in nature and her approach to jewelry as a language that needs no words."
Analya Cespedes started making jewelry over 20 years ago, under the instruction of Jaime Rosselot and Ricardo Libedinsky, in her hometown, Santiago, Chile. After moving to the U.S., she continued her education in the jewelry department of MICA (Maryland College Institute of Arts), while working as a foreign correspondent in Washington, D.C. for a Chilean daily.
Her training as a writer informs her approach to jewelry as a language that needs no words. Much more than adornment, it serves as a diary that documents meaningful events happening in her life, an obsession with a shape, a material or a color that lingers in time.
