In the process of developing the Metropolis Collection Irene and I have felt like Thomas Alba Edison more often than we would like. Why? Because, as the Smithsonian explains, ‘he filled more than 40,000 pages with notes before he finally had a bulb that withstood a 40 hour test in his laboratory. In 1879, after testing more that 1600 materials for the right filament, including coconut fiber, fishing line, and even hairs from a friend’s beard, Edison and his workers finally figured out what to use for the filament–carbonized bamboo’. Creating this collection is being more demanding than we ever imagined, but we are convinced that our efforts will worth it at the end.
A preview of our Metropolis Collection is available at Laura Marquez’s Gallery right now. It is a real privilege for us to have our cherised creations exhibited along with those designed by gifted jewelers such as Dorine Botana, Jaime Moreno, Liane Katsuki, Michael Ott and many others.
If you have the chance to visit Laura’s gallery, do not hesitate to make the most of it! Remember: 33 Lagasca St., 28001 Madrid. A place for Art, a place for Delight.
