Georgina Trevino is a contemporary jeweler from Tijuana, Mexico currently living in San Diego, California. She obtained a Bachelors Degree in Applied Design with an emphasis in Jewelry Making from San Diego State University in 2014.
Georgina Trevino’s work is a personal narrative and reflection of the nostalgic memories of unfinished architecture in Tijuana, Mexico. She incorporates industrial material local to the framework of Tijuana infrastructure into jewelry that discusses the dichotomy between conventional building material straddling the United States and Mexico border.
This recent work is an extension of her work by paying closer attention to color pattern and shape in relation to modern architecture and contemporary art movements she is surrounded by now. She uses techniques and materials like enameling, found objects, polymer clay, cement and other fun color techniques that relate to her cultural and architectural background.
What interested you in being apart of the Guidelines project?
"When given the same guidelines" Interested me and motivated me to work outside my jewelry routine of production. I look forward to the guidelines and follow along the other artists work & process and see how each artist approaches the guidelines with their own aesthetic during the following months. ;) "
Georgina Trevino is an artist who is on fire in the contemporary jewelry and fashion world. Her work has been featured in magazines such as Marie Claire Mexico, Pin-UP a magazine for Architectural Entertainment, Vogue Mexico, and publications such as ANIMAL No 26: Archivos and Contemporary Jewelry Exchange Vol. 2 - a project created by Olga Raben to bring artists from all over the world who get paired and asked to create a unique contemporary piece of jewelry for each other.
I'm so honored to have artists like Georgina excited about the Given Guidelines, and can't wait to see how she navigates the process for each Guideline. In a way, having her on board makes the project feel whole in the sense that we now have artists from across the country, from the east coast all the way to the west coast. I'm thrilled and excited about the possibilities that will unfold during the project and ready to discover the conversations between the work presented by each artist involved. Only 10 days before the making begins!
