It is not the first time in Human Rights History that we are on the verge of a remarkable change. We are all in “THE MOMENTUM” to erase away another system of discrimination, alienation, and inequality. In about two months, the Supreme Court will decide on the course of the events, and all of us could be part of this social transformation.
On the last days of March, 2013, I started a new jewelry collection, committed to the same-sex lovers concern. A few days before, I had designed the first models; surprisingly, the media was announcing a remarkable shift in reconsidering “The Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA). What a coincidence! Isn’t it?
Ylecara’s Collection Message, at this time in Human Rights History, is our commitment to the LGBT Community and with myself. I was inspired to design a collection that really reflects bodies with the same anatomical features. The LOVE and the NUMEN of these liaisons are symbolized in a circular band; two mini-sculptured women dancing together, and an ending lace motif, with two diamonds, enhancing the beauty and authenticity of their love. I am currently designing new pieces for the Same Sex Lovers Collection, focused on the symbols that better embody this heart and soul campaign. I am opened to your comments, suggestions, and petitions in order to fulfill our community messages at this significant moment for collective renovation.
Yesterday, I was visiting The Miami Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. http://www.gaybizmiami.com/. Its Marketing Director really honored the main statement of the Chamber. “SOMA”: Support our Members Always. It was a pleasure meeting them yesterday morning. They welcomed me as a family does from the start. Thank you very much Jorge Richa!
I would like to thank Caridad L. Cuesta and Mayra Ibarra for asking me to create for them the first models of the “Same Sex Lovers Collection”.
An effective way to motivate the visual brain creativity.Ylecara’s Jewelry Art
Is it as a big bang, a point in expansion coming from the unknown? I don’t want to be out of my field, even when I really enjoy quantum physics and philosophy, I will narrow down my metaphors.
Colleagues, friends, and clients have asked…- where does it come from? Are the Muses? Is creativity always at a little touch of the magic wand? (more…)
One of my Texturing Techniques.Ylecara’s Jewelry Art
This tutorial is intended to illustrate in 23 pictures an intermediate level process that is worthy for jewelers, model makers, miniaturists, architects, designers and many other hobbyists and artists. This technique is a regular procedure used by sculptor more than a traditional technique used for jewelry model makers. I have combined the procedure with another technique applied by print makers as one of the way to catch textures for my designs. Textures are one of the relevant features of my pieces and one of the reasons my clients love the craftsmanship of my jewels. It is my pleasure to share with you this little and useful secret that can make your experience more attractive and your pieces really interesting. If you are motivated for textures as I am, you will have fun, too. I have included the main chords of this technique but you and only you could apply it successfully through experimentation. The textures and forms that you can get are unlimited, as your imagination is. Going through experimentation in small-scale pieces is really inexpensive. Enjoy it and share. (more…)
The Still Alive Nature Jewelry Collection continues its inexhaustible journey, at this time still alive paradoxically is seeking some sort of fossil remembrance. (more…)
