“Kañpële,  the other side of pair organs” is the tittle of a serie  made by the artist between 2011-2012.  The shapes, colours and names of this serie  refers to Mapuche language; “Mapudungun”. Each word used to give a name to the jewels , speaks about  the connection between human beings and the relations of vital dependence between two. The decition of use  Mapuches language,  as cultural inspiration, works as a way of give a value  to this unknown culture from where she is from into an international context in the realm of art jewellery. Mapuche, is a native culture that comes from south of Chile,  which has an important tradition in the craft of making silver pieces to the body for rituals and beliefs and closely connected to women.
