About

Marta Ortí

I have always been interested in design, art and craftwork, but what attracts me the most is contemporary jewellery, especially those pieces which have a concept or a story behind them that makes them charming. I think that every work has to attract you at first sight and then it has to captivate you.

In 2005 I entered the world of design specialising in Graphic Design at the Local School of Art and Design (Escuela Municipal de Arte y Diseño) of Terrassa, where, after graduating, I also studied a Post Graduate in Design. Later on, I became interested in jewellery and decided to try it in a small studio in Terrassa. After being fascinated by this profession, the following year, 2011, I decided to enrol in the Higher School of Art and Design Llotja (Escuela Superior de Arte y Diseño Llotja) of Barcelona to study a Degree on Artistic Jewellery. Ever since, I have increased my knowledge by doing workshops in the field of jewellery, and other specialities.

I like to be constantly learning, growing and mostly enjoying, in order to provide interesting creations that arouse curiosity. I also like to collaborate with people from other specialties to share knowledge and ideas, and to create some projects together. I work on the pieces from start to finish; from the concept to the realization of the piece, going through its design.
