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 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.

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.
