Hello! I´m Flora Mayer.

Four years ago I started “Cenizas Azules”, my own brand of unique and exclusive jewelry and specified myself in the creation of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings , brides´hair adorments and accesories for the mothers of the brides.

Since then I´ve been working intensively in the search of a style of my own that beautifies women helping them to “be themselves” by feeling unique and special.

My designs are mainly based on handymade forms creating ethereal sensations of movements through different textures and colours given by the materials I use ( semiprecious stones, river pearls, mother of the pearls, passamanerie and organdy laces, and recycled antique jewelry.

At the moment I´m selling my pieces at the shops of the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum of Madrid and The National Museum of Decorative Arts of Buenos Aires. My designs were inspired on pictures belonging to their own Collections. Now my purpose is to expand my Works to other Museums, mainly in Buenos Aires, New York and Boston. Therefore I´m in the search of new materials taken from our nature and autochthonous.

I´ve investigated and experimented with different materials from bottons (galatit paste) to happy birthday balloons. But I´ve arrived to the conclusion that I consider it important to appreciate our own natural resources and, on the other hand, create an environmental conscience besides thinking in their future sustenance.

But I´ve arrived to the conclusion that I consider it important to appreciate our own natural resources and, on the other hand, create an environmental conscience besides thinking in their future sustenance. Therefore my Proyect consists on making an investigation in Jujuy, in the north of our country, visiting eight native communities in ten days from Tilcara to Yavi to explore their natural resources (sheep and llama wool, grains, leathers, etc.); meanwhile observe and learn their ancestral threadding techniques and through the use of their materials, apply them to my new designs. In this way we will all benefit for I will be able to create a new collection with the new materials and techniques and represent our country in my future expositions. I consider it a super fascinating experience and I need your help to achieve it! Thank you!
