Emily Armenta: Emily Armenta artfully combines history and romance into her jewelry. Spanish poetry, art and architecture inspire her designs which are created using old-world methods of fabrication, such as Etruscan granulation. Perhaps her biggest influence is the belief in Duende. In the Spanish culture Duende is essentially soul and the belief that one must struggle against or pass through darkness to achieve greatness. Her work is infused with the play of light and dark, old and new, creating a style that is recognizable and coveted by jewelry collectors.
