About Ma. Bernice A. Recto : Bernice Recto is a name that will soon emerge in the design industry. The year 2011 sparked the beginning of her craft by putting together one-of-a-kind handmade earrings, a skill which she independently mastered. She set out to market her products through friends and relatives. Through the course of time, there was an increase in the demand for her designs which were met by replicating it to a maximum of at least five to maintain customer confidence that each pair they own is a limited edition. With a discerning eye for aesthetic and tasteful luxury, Bernice’s jewelry pieces play mostly with the usage of pearls as a tribute to Mikimoto Kokichi, one of her design heroes. Her evident fondness in yellow gold metals allude to the refined sensibilities of the Victorian era where she adds a personal touch and contemporary take.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design and art are universal. It is an expression of how you feel. Design is a part of art and vice versa. Both complement each other in as abstract as how emotions dawn in each individual. It is a solitary outpour of the imagination and the intellect that releases the soul of the creator for others to feel, view and experience. No one can claim that they haven't been immersed to design. The mere spoken word is a design of words chosen by an individual to convey artful emotion.
