Artist Lucina of Motcy Designs creates a romantic marriage of traditional and contemporary jewelry designs with her Talavera Jewelry Collection. She creates an elegant collection for those seeking to find a connection to México through timeless designs. 

To date, this has been Lucina's most challenging and time-consuming collection. The preparation and desired result of each model took the artist days to achieve. With these pieces, Lucina is highlighting ancestral techniques and adding a contemporary touch.

Of note, this collection was produced during a difficult stage for the artist as she navigated some personal challenges and life's unexpected blows. For her, these pieces reflect her journey through these struggles and are the result of love and light and what happens when you calm your heart and mind.

Wire-wrapping is the artisanal technique of taking malleable wire and wrapping it around itself or beads to form unique shapes and patterns. It is a jewelry artform used to connect several pieces together without having to solder or heat the metal wire.

For the Talavera collection, Lucina wire-wrapped Talavera ceramic beads into unique designs to create the perfect marriage between traditional and contemporary design. Talavera ceramic is typical of the state of Puebla, Mexico. It is recognized for its white background with designs in blue but it comes in all colors. Original Talavera pottery from Puebla is only made in the state, specifically in the towns of Atlixco or Cholula, due to the high quality of the clays found in these regions and the four-centuries-old traditional manufacturing. The Talavera used in her designs was sourced from Talavera Salazar in Puebla, México.

Lucina Montañez Mota is a talented jewelry designer currently residing in Dallas, Texas and native to Aguascalientes, México. Her designs are made to elevate Mexican culture with a touch of freshness and boldness. She prides herself in creating designs with quality materials so they last for many years to come.

Her main technique is fine wire work from which other techniques are derived such as crimping, framing, herringbone, coiling, urban filigree, hatching, among others. Many of her collections include a nod to her Mexican background by including artisanal-made materials.

Lucina considers herself a lifelong student of jewelry design as well as a teacher in her local community. She currently teaches several beginner classes for jewelry making in Dallas and aims to continuously improve her techniques and her teachings.

“I want to be a part of your special days and help highlight your beauty by framing it with Motcy Designs,” she says. Making jewelry has allowed her dreams to come true and all her current and future clients play a role in her joy.
