Chilean born, Auckland based jewellery artist.
Bernal's work "Links" carries in its core a quality of interactivity and accessibility. Combining technology with manual processes she has crafted each of these geometric shaped links through wax modeling and 3D printing later to be cast in resin in all the different colours. All links are interchangable, allowing the audience to activate their differences by putting together their own piece. Macarena is interested in the way we can expand our perceptions of manual and technological processes and through this re-evaluate our cultural attitudes towards value and preciousness.
