Bea Jareno necklace

Artist's Statement

Born in Madrid, Bea Jareno graduated with Distinctions from Kensington and Chelsea College in 2004, London.

Her work is inspired in the natural studies of porcupine quills together with the book 'Africa Adorned' by Angela Fisher, the African landscapes and culture, making her quills, a recognised signature mark on her Design's.

The different qualities of line, shape, size and texture in harmony with the use of precious metals creates rhythm, fluidity and movement interest  within the pieces, giving a simplicity and minimalist sense throughout the body of work.

'Afiok' translates as 'Ivory' and is highly valued within the African culture, specially by the Dinka of the East, represents wealth and status within their communities.

Her work explores and emphasised contrast in metals using red and yellow gold, polished and oxidised silver, rubber, mixing handmade textured links with fine chain, combining a variation of finishes and addig colour by using precious, semi-precious stones, beads and pearls.

This combination of freedom and flexibility enables her to create unique pieces to suit individual personalities.
