I used to buy different materials for my accessories in the places I visit.
I love different cultures - their fabrics, their dishes...
I love people in my region, La Rioja, because EVERYONE very friendly.
What got you started crafting?
Since 2005 I have been making "alpargatas" which are a typical spanish shoes. What sets my shoes apart are the fabrics I use, from other countries, full of flowers, colors... A few years ago I began with earrings, brooches using different materials like resin, felt, paper...
What is your source of inspiration?
I love magazines, blogs, others crafters, people on the street...
What have you made recently?
A just made two headbands with some pieces I bought in New York last year. They were constructed mostly from felt and feathers.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell my crafts via PayPal, and there are some shops in my country that carry my products, as well as one shop in France.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Because I need to explore my mind and explain with my hands.
