Melina Castro Jewelry
My main inspiration is the beauty of nature and the raw fierce sensuality of the flowing lava. I see them as mysterious and powerful, unapologetic and uncompromising in their creativity…. traits that I embrace and strive for in my own work.
Metal has become my favorite medium. At first glance it appears to be cold, solid, and flat, but it actually has the ability to bend, be formed, and to be fused into other metals. When heated to a certain temperature it melts with a glowing incandescent light that reminds me of lava. In this molten state a magical process of transformation occurs where infinite possibilities exist. As it cools down, the radiance dissipates and it solidifies revealing the intention of its creator.
