Born in Lovain, Belgum in 1971, Claudia Vallejo lives and works in Bogotá with her husband and two daughters. Anthropologist by title; jeweler by passion, intuition, ability and persistence. Her training at an art school, not in design, gives an independent style to her work. With an abstract language, every day concepts and a tireless research for materials and alternative techniques her work is refreshing.
Claudia: “I truly believe fair trade is a living concept. To me, it is more than a mission, it is an obligation… it’s not enough to just say you embrace Fair Trade – you must live it. No certification is a substitute for being a conscientious citizen.”
