If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to be able to get focus in one thing until I get to finish it and not get distracted by other ideas that cross my mind.
You're designing your own jewelry line, could you tell us more about it?
The name of the line is Momposina Rocks, my sister Irma and I design it. It's a fun, we use different materials, silver, brass, and different findings I get to collect during trips around the world when I do modeling, we also get to work with different colombian indigenous communities and artisans that work the filigree. Channeling a gypsy spirit to create our designs.
