My name is Pamela Martello, I was born in Mexico City and raised in a
beautiful city nearby the capital, Cuernavaca, full of life, colors, history
and great people. But I have always been curious about living abroad and exploring different countries. When I was 18 years old, I decided to start a new adventure, somewhere else.
I decided to move to Italy to study jewelry design at IED and to learn Italian. Motivated by my grandfather's roots who was from the south of Italy and by the history of this amazing country.
I lived 1 year in Milano and 3 more in the beautiful city of Rome.
But after 4 years living there, I decided to move on, and I set to go even
further, to China. Attracted by the history, the country, and the exotic places to travel in China and in Asia, and always with the motivation of working in the field of jewelry design.
Here in Shanghai, I had the opportunity to work close with a Chinese company designing jewelry made out of jade, a valuable material and full
of meaning for Chinese culture. At the same time, I decided to explore a
bit more the world of digital fabrication, where I have been collaborating
lately with a FabLab. Experimenting but most of all learning new techniques, software, and machines that I can apply to the design of my work.
