The onyx It is a variety of black agate of volcanic origin that is composed of silica and comes from deposits in Mexico. Its name comes from the Greek onyx which means "nail" because according to Greek legend the pieces of onyx are the nails of Venus cut by Cupid. In ancient Greece all colorations of chalcedony were called onyx; It was not until Roman times, when the name was limited to the darker specimens.
The amazonite It is a mineral of the feldspar family that has a very light blue-green color due to its high concentration of lead. It comes from the United States and Madagascar.
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.
