Award-winning visual artist Macarena Bernal is renowned for her mindfully designed, handcrafted contemporary jewellery. Maca chooses Art Jewellery for its wearability-inducing interactivity. She is best known for Maca Links, which she pioneered in 2015.
In her work, Maca explores alternative ideas of value in jewellery by capitalising on the bonds between jewellery and wearer, propounding jewellery as wearable forms of archive, or using it as a platform to make socio-political statements. Born in Chile, Maca has been based in New Zealand since 2012. She has studied jewellery in both Chile and New Zealand, including a Master’s Degree from the Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin School of Arts.
