Interview with Tere Artigas
Where do you find your inspiration?
We draw inspiration from our Mexican heritage the same as we do from LA which is our home. Each experience we have is a source of inspiration, meeting people, going to a new city a new park a beach. Discovering a house in your neighborhood, trying new food or interior decor everywhere we visit.
Where did you learn your craft?
It's been a self taught process and really with time we have discovered new techniques and have learned how to make it work.
What is your hope for the future ?
To keep doing what we love, including our distractions listed below.
To re-open our store in LA.
We want to travel again and visit stores that we work with.
To go back to our factories in down town LA, sit with our jewelers and talk about what's coming.
What is your main source of calm/distraction during these stressful times ?
Is all your family all in the US ? Do you have other sibs?
Where in Mexico are you from?
Born and raised in Mexico City, such a beautiful and magical city.
Are your parents artists ? Are they creatives as well ?
How is it running a business with a sib?
Do you handle different aspects of the business ?
We have our roles but we handle every aspect together.
