The jasper is a variety microcrystalline quartz of volcanic origin. Its color is due to the multiple inclusions that have been deposited during its formation. It usually has a great variety of veins, circles and color mixtures. The word jasper comes from the Greek iaspis, which means “stained stone”.
The dalmatian jasper It is an opaque variety of jasper from deposits in Brazil. It presents black inclusions on a whitish background.
The quartz It is a mineral composed of silica that is present in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. It is the most abundant mineral in the earth's crust, and its name derives from the German quartz which means "hard".
The citrine quartz is a variety of quartz with a high concentration of hydrated iron oxide that gives it its characteristic lemon yellow color (citron in French it means “lemon”). It is possible to find this mineral naturally in places where volcanic activity has deposited sediments over the years. It comes from deposits in Brazil and Africa.
Craft time is a time that takes us out of the urgency of everyday life. A time that obeys the materials with which he works, listening to them and accompanying them. It is therefore a gesture away from the routine gesture, the one that machines repeat over and over again. The craft time in Belén Bajo is also the time of durable materials, metals, stones to which timeless, simple forms with a certain geometric flavor are proposed.
Belén Bajo jewels seek maximum formal simplicity without giving up a playful touch. In part, its formal universe comes from the central European rationalist and functional culture, its Mediterranean roots and the survival of the plastic forms of the Al-Andalus culture in which a geometrized nature is presented by means of infinite patterns.
About Bethlehem Bajo
Belén Bajo trained at the School of Fine Arts in Madrid. There, from formal experimentation, the accumulation of references and manual work, he developed a way of understanding both plastic creation, a universe of chromatic and material abstractions, as well as the value of the roundness of objects as carriers of symbolic meanings.
