EMPOWERED BY YOU
DESIGNED BY MYRIAM MORENO
A mother-daughter team.
Hello, I am Myriam, a lover of my sea, the Mediterranean, its myths and crafts. And we are “WE” because my mother (who is also called Mar ♥ ︎) helps me with these crazy ideas that sometimes I have.
Since I was very young I have liked to travel and learn about other cultures. One of the stages that inspired me the most was my stay China. In 798, an old industrial zone in Beijing converted into galleries, and in the famous Liu Li Chang market, I discovered some works that led me to consider jewelry as a tool for artistic expression. So on my return to Spain I enrolled in Artistic Jewelry at the EASD of Valencia, ending in 2016 with the Prize for Artistic Teaching of the Valencian Community.
Educated with the Mediterranean and Nordic mythology as bedtime stories my fascination with myths and ancient cultures was always present. My personal experiences or those of women close to me, my tribe ♡, or women from history and culture that I find interesting, are the themes that inspire me. So, you will see that my collections have names of goddesses, witches, muses and treasures that I find on the beaches of my Valencian land. Pieces with deep Mediterranean inspiration, with orientalist touches and a lot of magic. Because yes, I believe in magic. You do not?
SLOW & HAND MADE
I make my pieces with much love, selecting gems from trusted suppliers and playing with items found on the beach, such as pebbles, crystals or shells. I love finding new shapes in the stones, carving them and creating drawings and shapes. I am also passionate about Venetian artisan glass work, so you will see that sometimes I create pieces of glass with my blowtorch.
I have traveled a lot alone and with my parents (I traveled 1/2 million km on a Pegaso, and this only before starting school), I have moved several times, but my home, to which I always return, is in Valencia. A house in the countryside, white and blue, where I come to create apart from noise and speed. And where we eat paella on Sundays.
Hi, I’m Mar.
As the daughter of immigrants, I was lucky enough to grow up between two languages and two cultures. A gift that I wanted to share with my daughter.
I grew up in Kassel, a city famous for its relationship with contemporary art. Perhaps my artistic sensibility helped me to detect the talent of my daughter and I simply facilitated her path.
And that’s what I basically do now, help her in whatever way I can.
So, sometimes I will answer your emails or the phone, although you may not realize it because our voices are alike.
