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 nacre It is a hard, white, iridescent substance that forms inside the shells of some molluscs. It is usually iridescent due to its laminar structure that refracts light.

The gold pure, which has 24 carats, is a soft metal so it is mixed with other metals to give it hardness through the process called “alloying”. 18K gold contains 75% pure gold and 25% silver and copper. 9 carat gold contains 35.5% of pure gold and 64.5% of silver and copper.

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 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.

Stylistic influences

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.
