The agate It is a microcrystalline quartz of the chalcedony family that comes from Brazil. It is volcanic in nature and owes its variety of colors to the multiple inclusions that were deposited during its formation and subsequent cooling. Its name comes from the Achates river, in Sicily, where it was found for the first time.
The mossy agate It is a variety of agate that is characterized by its inclusions of green chlorite, iron oxide and manganese that create configurations similar to those of moss.
The peridot it is the gem quality of olivine. It comes from Pakistan and Brazil and forms in igneous rocks. Due to its high iron content, it has a light olive color that comes from the basic composition of the mineral.
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 far from routine, the one that machines repeat over and over again. The time for crafts in Belén Bajo is also the time for durable materials, metals, stones, to which timeless, simple shapes are proposed, with a certain geometric flavor.
Belén Bajo jewelery seeks 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 culture of Al-Andalus 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.
