Pamela Pereyra has been designing and working as a professional artist since 2003. A native to La Paz, Bolivia, Pamela earned a degree in Media Studies from the University of South Florida. After college, she went back to the mountains and ended up in the inspirational land of Taos, NM in 1996. It wasn’t long before the art mecca of Taos influenced her to receive formal training in metal-smithing at the University of New Mexico/Taos.
She makes wearable art in the form of jewelry. Her work is modern sculpture with a sense of motion. Her necklaces, earrings, pins and bracelets are made out of sterling silver wit flourishes of gold and gemstones. She incorporates traditional methods and puts her spin on them. Her simple and elegant distinctive designs are influenced by the minimalist aesthetic of contemporary design and architecture.
Some of her most recent work is about self-examination. Since having children, her work has shifted with her personal life, and at times, she journals her life changes in metal as can be seen in some of her collections.
Pamela has been featured in one-person shows and exhibits her work in Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Last year, she won the “Best in Show” award at the 37th Taos Fall Arts Festival – Taos Open.
Her work is collected by artists, architects, bankers, brokers, builders, dancers, jewelers, mothers, musicians, teachers, yogis, and eventually hopefully by someone like you.
Pamela’s current focus is to continue creating innovative designs in metal and fine stone that compliment the women’s body with grace subtlety.
