MELROSE OPEN STUDIO TOUR 2020Artist Gallery for the 4th annual Melrose Open Studio Tour
Marta Diaz is a jewelry maker and designer who works mainly with sterling silver and semi-precious stones. Originally from Spain, Marta moved to the United States in 2010. She has always enjoyed creating with her hands. She started making beaded jewelry and soon discovered that she loved to incorporate metal elements in her designs, that is when she became interested in metalsmithing. The moment she was able to transform a piece of silver into a pair of earrings, Marta knew she had found her medium. Her work can be found in different shops across Massachusetts, including Hourglass Gift Gallery in Melrose.
I’m a jewelry maker and designer. I usually start with an idea but let the fabrication process guide my designs. My jewelry ranges from minimal to bold, from geometric to organic. I like to mix shapes, sizes, and textures. Contrast and details are key parts of my jewelry. My goal is to create pieces that tell a story which speaks to someone’s soul.
