The pyrite It is a gold to grayish colored mineral with a metallic luster. Because of its appearance, many have confused it with gold. For this reason, it was known as "fool's gold".
It is found in sedimentary deposits and belongs to the group of sulfides.
Its name comes from the Greek pyr which means “fire”, since sparks are produced when pyrite rubs against other metals.
There are many deposits of this mineral throughout the world, including Spain.
The blue topaz It is an aluminosilicate formed through fluorine emanations that are released from the crystallization of igneous rocks. The name topaz derives from Topazos Island in the Red Sea where the first specimens are believed to have been found. There are different shades: the darker London Blue topaz, the mid-tone Swiss Blue topaz, and the lighter Sky Blue topaz.
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.
