Important necklace, cast silver, rose quartz, circa 1970, artist's certificate.

Self-taught and unclassifiable sculptor, famous for her First Mothers and other Cathedral Mothers, drawing their formal power from the purity of Romanesque art, her first jewelry made in Cadaques, in the 1970s, was inspired by barbarian adornments with her necklaces of hammered silver, and sublimate recovered materials such as stones picked up from the ground or reused toilet flush chains. The material takes precedence and guides the shape of the jewel to make it a sculpture-collage-jewel, spectacular and austere at the same time, imbued with the magnificence of ancient civilizations.
