The chalcedony It is a variety of quartz mixed with moganite and is of volcanic origin. Its tone is light grayish blue although it works in different colors. Its name derives from Chalcedon, the ancient Byzantine city.

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.

craft culture

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.

Stylistic influences

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.
