Iris De La Torre
My name is Iris De La Torre and I design colourful and playful graphics which I transform into jewellery, accessories and objects. My work is inspired by my country’s Mexican Folk Arts and Crafts and the magic of 1960s graphic design.
My jewellery is mainly made by Perspex acrylic sheet; a recyclable material. I plan my work very well so that there is absolute minimum waste of materials. I assemble all pieces by hand in my Surrey studio with materials sourced, laser cut and digitally printed by my suppliers in the United Kingdom.
My constant objective is to produce an innovative graphic design narrative through my work and make a finished piece of jewellery or object of which I am proud and embodies spectacle, fun and optimism.
